Prague teddy bear tourism on the rise / Medvidci si v Praze pekne uzivaji

toy tourism /www.dw-world.de imageYou are not going to believe this. A certain Prague traveling agency is launching world’s first holidays for stuffed animal toys! For only 90 euros (and up) you can send your favorite teddy bear for a week trip to Prague. You know how boring it is for him to sit in the same bed for years? The poor thing wants to live a little too!

So once you send your dear one off to Prague you get a daily e-mail updates from him with pictures attached: teddy at the Prague Castle, teddy sitting by the Jan Hus statue at the Old Town Square, teddy having a typical Czech dinner…..

The creator of this ‘teddy bear tourism’ is a half-Czech, Prague-based enterpreneur, Tomio Okamura. “There are 1.2 billion teddy bears around the world, which is of course a very big group of potential clients,” says Tomio.

The agency has received already about 50 bookings in the first week since the agency went public.

    This is absolutely atrocious!
    How much petro-fuel will it cost our planet to send stuffed toys off on imaginary holidays? Why not spend the money to send off real, live humans who need holidays but can’t afford one on their own?
    No… instead, we’ll just suck out some more petrol for ridiculous bullshit. What a tragic waste of our natural resources!

    I’m sorry, but I find this absolutely repugnant.
    There are so many better uses for extra money & our precious natural resources (of which we really don’t have any extra).

    I agree! I thought it was just a really good joke at first but I was wrong.
