(Scroll down for video) A company has come up with a clever idea to make money on people’s obsession with their stuffed animals.
A travel company has begun offering vacation packages for toys that will cost its owners between $20 and $55.
It may seem ridiculous, but people are willing to pay up to send objects on vacation.
Unagi Travel explained the reason behind the madness.
Some stuffed animals owners said that they live through them, and when they see the plush bear flying to places they feel as if they too are traveling.
“I want to see and walk the places that my stuffed animal went through one day,” an unnamed woman said.
The 51-year-old woman had not been out much due to an illness that makes it difficult for her to walk.
The woman eventually sought medical help in order to be able to go on vacation along with her stuffed animal.
If you want to keep up with the adventures of the toys, you can access the travel agency’s Facebook page.
The tours are operated by 38-year-old Sonoe Azuma, who previously had a blog that recounted the life of her stuffed animals.
