British company reunites lost teddy bears with owners
The future looks stuffed with promise for lost teddy bears in Britain. The train pulls up to the station and you quickly herd your bags, your bigger luggage and kids off the train. You're off the train and as the cars pull away, your youngest proclaims that he left his best friend, a stuffed bear affectionately and creatively named "Teddy," on the train. The people at Teddy Rescue want to ensure the above scenario never happens again. First Great Western, a U.K.-based travel and leisure company, set up the Teddy Rescue program to reconnect lost stuffed animals with their families. The company posts mugshots of forgotten dolls from the lost and founds of train stations in the U.K., and they're heartbreakingly sad, but also totally adorable. "Unable to negotiate the gap unaided, these little bears and other cute cuddly toys have been separated from their families," the Teddy Rescue site explains. Anyone looking to track down a lost teddy can search through the photos posted online and contact the group by email with a description of the lost bear.
