The Hunt for Furnando Campaign, which launched on 14th February earlier this year, has already experienced success with children across the UK taking part in the search to find one of the limited edition Mystic Moggies. The auction will see Furnando figurine #0000 go on sale through eBay, which will end today at 12pm.

Great Ormond Hospital Children’s Charity already works closely with Vivid, having previously launched successful joint collaborations on both the GOSHI Moshi Tin and the GOSH Mosh-pital Treehouse Playset.

Mia Roth, senior brand manager for Vivid, said: “We’ve had an overwhelming response to the Hunt for Furnando campaign and we were amazed at how Moshi fans really entered into the spirit of the campaign. We’re delighted to be working closely with GOSH again – they were a natural choice and they bring joy to many children’s lives on a daily basis. We hope that the funds raised from the Furnand0000 auction go some way to continue the good work they do.”
