British company reunites lost teddy bears with owners



The future looks stuffed with promise for lost teddy bears in Britain.
Scenario: You're traveling on a train with your family in London. 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.
Previously, if this event transpired your child would cry, you'd get him a new teddy bear and go on living life. Sure, down the line your child may come around on the new bear but it wouldn't be the same and you know it.
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. "Eventually, aided by our helpful and friendly staff, they have found their way to Lost Property in the vaults of Bristol Temple Meads Station."
