According to Mashable, while flying home with her family, four-year-old Phoebe Steel nearly lost her beloved teddy bear RaRa at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. Little did she know that RaRa was about to go on the journey of a lifetime.

After noticing of her daughter’s missing bear, Jen Heuvelmans Steel, Pheobe’s mother, contacted the airport through Facebook to see if they could track it down. Not only was the bear found in a lost and found drawer, the airport staff was ready to send RaRa back to its rightful owner.

The staff took pictures all along the way of the bear’s trip and posted them to the airport’s official Facebook page. RaRa went through scanners, conveyor belts and even had some time to stop by the airport gift shop while waiting for his flight.


Eventually, the bear made it back to the Steel’s home in Saskatoon, Canada, safe and sound. The airport staff also sent home a new friend with him — a souvenir teddy bear sporting the airport logo.
