The Simple Bear Necessities

This is the cutest!

British Airways documented Pooh the teddy bear’s extraordinary journey home to an eight-month-old boy after being left behind 4,600 miles from his home in West Yorkshire. Little Woody Cranmer was devastated after leaving his small cuddly toy thousands of miles away in Argentina. The beloved plush had been passed down from the toddler’s father Scott, who was given Pooh as a baby. The British Airways team took pictures of Pooh’s journey home and made them into a book for little Woody to keep. 

Thanks to the good ol’ Mail Online for such an adorable tale.  🙂        – Ned


These adorable pictures show the moment a baby boy, who was devastated after leaving his beloved cuddly teddy bear 4,600 miles away in Argentina, was reunited with his toy.

When Woody Cranmer left his treasured teddy ‘Pooh’ in Buenos Aires, the eight-month-old thought he would never see his lovable companion again.

The toy had been passed down from his father Scott, 30, from Wakefield, who was given Pooh as a baby.

Once the family realised he had gone missing during their trip last month they took to social media to try and find their furry family member.

And thankfully within days, Mr P Bear – now the owner of a gold executive club card – was located by the British Airways team and flown back to Leeds Bradford Airport, West Yorkshire, to be reunited with his anxious family.

Cranmer said: ‘I know to some people it’s only a silly teddy, but Pooh has been part of my life for the last 30 years.

‘When Woody was born, it was a huge thing to pass Pooh into Woody’s care. We were so worried when we lost Pooh while we were visiting Woody’s grandfather in Buenos Aires.

‘We were eternally grateful to British Airways for finding him and returning him to my little boy.

‘They go everywhere together and they’re inseparable when it comes time to go to bed.’

The team behind the find even took pictures of Pooh’s journey and made them into a book for Woody to keep as a very special memento.

Cranmer added: ‘He has had a great adventure and we’re so happy he’s finally landed back home. We’ll have a great book to show Woody when he’s older.

‘I’d just like to thank everyone for their help in getting him home. Everyone has been superb.’
