Now your favourite toys can travel to Prague too
Everyone's got a favourite toy, whether it still sits on their bed or is hidden away in a box in the attic. For some, however, the lure of travel is just too much and it can be a difficult thing to say goodbye to your teddy bear when you're heading off around the world, forcing him to stay behind and miss out on all the fun just because he doesn't fit in your suitcase. Thank the lord therefore that one company has set up a scheme to allow such friends to jet set as well, meaning that your stuffed companion could soon be setting up camp in a hostel in Prague, or somewhere equally as exciting.

The Toy Travelling Agency has, according to AFP, said that it will be kind enough to provide trips to Prague for teddies and other similar characters and take them on a journey of the city, snapping their photos at all the famous landmarks and attractions that are on offer, possibly standing beneath the Astronomical Clock or Tyn Cathedral.

Each owner of the lucky bears and dolls will then be forwarded a CD of photos and the organisation has said they can then "boast to friends or on Facebook" that their childhood pals are out enjoying the high life.

While this photography service costs €90 (£78.86), if people believe that their toys truly do deserve a relaxing holiday, by paying €150 they can be given aromatherapy and massages with a view of the Prague skyline.

An analyst with the Mag Consulting Agency, Jaromir Beranek, said of the initiative - which was inspired by investment show Den D, similar to Dragons' Den: "It looks like a whim and I am not convinced it will have broader economic impact."
