Animal lover Daisy Wells wanted to share her birthday celebrations with all her furry friends.
The four-year-old was determined to invite all the dogs she knows, including her grandparents’ and childminder’s pets.
But mum Wendy persuaded Daisy that is was better to have other children as party guests as there was a very special surprise in store.
Magician and children’s entertainer Silly Scott visited the children at Daisy’s Lee-on-the-Solent home and conjured up Mango the bunny as part of his show.
‘I think that was Daisy’s favourite part because she absolutely loves animals,’ said Wendy.
‘Sometimes it seems like she knows all the dogs in Lee. We couldn’t invite them of course. It wouldn’t have been a good idea with Mango around!’
The birthday girl and her friends also enjoyed a teddy bear’s picnic, sitting on blankets on the floor with their favourite toys and eating from meal boxes.
She received lots of presents but the biggest was a princess playhome bed complete with play kitchen and bookcase, made by Wendy and her dad Derek.
Here’s Daisy pictured with Silly Scott and Mango.
