A little girl from Saskatoon and her beloved teddy bear have been reunited after they were separated at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
In a series of unfortunate events, four-year-old Phoebe Steel misplaced her favorite teddy ‘RaRa’ at the airport while heading home to Saskatoon earlier this month, Global News reports.
Phoebe’s mother contacted the airport through Facebook to inquire about the missing bear, but she didn’t have much faith. Much to her surprise, the adventurous staff at the airport was able to locate the bear, but they had a little fun before sending it back home to its rightful owner.
Airport staff initially found RaRa sleeping in the lost and found drawer.
RaRa woke up in a drawer at the airport, but he was supposed to be on a plane with his family.
His first task was to make it through security.
His first stop was at security where he went through the scanners.
It appears that RaRa is fitting in quite nicely and had no problem making friends.
The bear never waited in line and got around the airport in style.
RaRa even jumped on the Blue Jays bandwagon! Hopefully he will continue to cheer the team on during the playoffs.
It looks like RaRa had a nice stay at the airport, but alas, his stay was brief.
RaRa made it back home to Saskatoon safe and sound. He even came home with another new friend for Phoebe, courtesy of the airport staff.
In a comment left on the Toronto Pearson International Airport Facebook page, Phoebe’s mom, Jen, took the time to thank the airport for returning Ra Ra to his home, safe and sound.
“Thank you to everyone at Toronto airport,” Jen Steel’s comment read. “RaRa is home and I have one very happy little girl. You went above and beyond to reunite a little girl and her bear. She also loves the surprise little bear that was in there as well. Thanks again. The Steel Family.”
