Mother accidentally sends her 5-year-old son to school with blowup sheep sex doll for nativity play

A mother says she was "mortified" after she mistakenly sent her 5-year-old son to school with a blowup sheep sex doll for the school's nativity play.

Helen Cox reportedly bought a shepherd costume on Amazon for her son Alfie​​​​​, which also came with a free blowup sheep. However, when Alfie brought the sheep to school, his teacher told him to take it back home.

After blowing up the sheep, the mother of two from Scotland finally realized why it was sent back home with her son. She found that the sheep had a large hole in its bottom along with red lips, eyelashes and a bow on its head.

"I have no idea if they've seen it was a sex toy and that's why they sent it home -- I'm mortified!" said Cox.

After the discovery, Cox told Alfie that he couldn't keep the sheep and attempted to make up reasons why he couldn't. However, the young boy still wanted to play with it.

Cox has now figured out a plan to get the sheep from Alfie. She says she will tell him that the "Elf on the Shelf" took it.
