A Florida six-year-old’s beloved Hobbes plush toy has had the adventure of a lifetime while lost in Tampa International Airport.
Many a toy gets lost in the mad shuffle of a family holiday every day (or, to put it lightly, “gone on an adventure”), mostly never to be seen again, but thankfully, one had a happy ending.
On June 6 in Tampa, Florida, 6-year-old Owen Lake lost his stuffed tiger Hobbes, from the popular comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, en route to a vacation with his family.
Rather than leave Hobbes lonely at a desk until his very grateful owner picked him up, airport Operations manager Tony D’Auito remembered a story of an English museum taking a lost stuffed lion on a photo shoot and adventure of the premises, so decided to do the same for Hobbes. Before long, he was ruling the whole place. Check out the photos!
