The Internet Rallies to Back Up Parents Who Told Son His Lost Toy Was Traveling


This may be the best thing I post and share all year. The internet can often be a cruel and sarcastic place, but sometimes our better nature rises to the surface and it’s awesome. Recently on, a person made the following post: “Friend’s son lost his favorite toy. Parents said the elephant is traveling around the world. Would love to share images of his travels with the son.”

So often, we see the posts where someone asked the internet community to help them Photoshop a picture, and it goes terribly wrong. This time however, people not only started sending in photos of the elephant toy having adventures, someone found an identical toy online and uploaded photos from different angles to give more freedom to the creators, and so the child wouldn’t get suspicious. Hopefully the parents see the link to the toy and order a replacement so that the elephant can come home soon, and the child won’t know the difference.

Check out the full submissions here on Reddit.

Well done internet. Well done indeed.
