A teddy bear, lost by a two-year-old Icelandic girl in Sweden last week, spent several days being pampered at a hotel before being returned to its owner, RÚV reports. Móa, the Icelandic girl, lost her teddy bear Balli on the streets of Gothenburg, Sweden. Balli was found outside the Avalon Hotel on Wednesday and brought inside the hotel.
The hotel staff treated him like any other hotel guest, prepared a bed for him and served him breakfast in the morning. They even offered him to sunbathe at the poolside. His adventures at the hotel were photographed and the pictures posted on Facebook in an effort to find his owner. More than 4,000 people shared the photos, hoping to alert the owner.
Meanwhile, Móa’s mother called store after store, trying to locate Balli, since he was sorely missed by Móa. Not until a local newspaper picked up the story did Móa’s parents finally find out where Balli was staying. The reunion on Sunday was reportedly a very happy one, and Balli has now checked out of the hotel.
Móa and Balli reunited.
