Such a sweet cool idea.. A website that helps stuff animals travel around the world through the help of strangers, and all the while building photo blogs of their journeys.

ToyVoyagers is a free-to-join website dedicated to travelling toys and their adventures around the globe.. Anyone who comes into contact with a ToyVoyager is encouraged to update its Travelog and post photographs of its adventures on the website.. We have members from all over the world. Membership is free: all you need is access to the internet, a camera, your own (or someone else's!) ToyVoyager, a good sense of humour and a willingness to be stared at whilst randomly photographing a soft toy in front of a famous monument..

The idea was a culmination of admiring some snaps we'd taken of our son's toys on holiday, loving the travelling gnome in the film, 'Amelie', as well as the way a tin of treasures that she finds in her flat finds its way back to its original owner.

Hehe, surprising no one decided to carry on with the idea before. Very sweet :-*

One of my all time favourite movies, Amelie. Seen it so many times but still keep finding new things to love about it. The traveling gnome is so funny and I've certainly had that idea, so maybe I'll jump aboard the ToyVoyagers.

nice find, mouser

I was on vacation last month. We had dinner with another couple who had to bring their stuffed monkey for photos. It seems that the wife's office has this monkey mascot, and any employee who goes away on vacation brings the monkey and takes on-location photos of the monkey back to share.

Does that result in a rhesus negative?

I'll certainly host Baby Cody :)

I bet my daughter would love to take him to Frognerparken :)

The trips are a bit expensive but maybe we should save up to send Baby Cody on one.
