Giant gummy bear mascot stolen from outside Baton Rouge store
BATON ROUGE - An oversized gummy bear was stolen from outside of Giggles, a children's store in Willow Grove, and the owners are asking for help in getting it home.
The owners of the store said Willow the gummy bear has been "an icon of Giggles since day one."
“He is a staple to us. Kids love to take a picture with him, they love to tag us on instagram and see Willow. We had lots of kids come in on Saturday and say how much they missed the bear, and with the holiday season it’s just a fun icon for us, you know? He hangs out outside, comes inside for bad weather and he’s heavy so it’s just sad. Very sad for us,” said Whitney Coleman, the owner.
If anyone has information about Willow's whereabouts, call (225) 663-2474. No questions will be asked.
