A Travel Agency For Stuffed Toys

December 27, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

Aaron Schachter wrote about a (real) travel agency for…stuffed toys:

  • For $45 a day the Japanese company will take your stuffed animal on a tour of Tokyo with stops in places such as Tokyo tower and the Imperial Palace.
  • To prove that they visited those places the tour guide will take photos of the stuffed animal at the attractions.
  • Before the trip owners of the toy will get a questionnaire asking about things such as the toy’s dietary restrictions.
    • The service seems to appeal to those who can’t afford to go on trips themselves, and so live voraciously through their stuffed animals.

Read about how the service got started, and more over here.
