Send Your Stuffed Animal on Vacation to Japan


Thu, Oct 31st, 2013 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

According to Yahoo! Travel, Japanese company Unagi Travel, the "Japan Travel Agency for Stuffed Animals," now offers vacations for your stuffed animals.

The travel agency gives tours not to you but to your favorite plush toy. For fans of the movie "Amelie," in which a garden gnome disappears from a front yard and mysteriously appears in photos taken at tourist sites around the globe, this is kind of like that: Give your teddy a grand adventure while you sit at home. Talk about a toy story.

The odd but oddly adorable idea goes like this: Head to the Unagi Travel website and book your toy's tour. Price points are reasonable, but you pay for shipping to Japan. They send your toy back for free.
