I have a garden gnome i take with me on trips. I have sent him with friends when they've gone to cool places, like China and the UK.

That is... brilliant! o.o

Why didn't I think of this first?!

Kudos for not using exclamation points

Sorry, I take my own on holiday with me. I am not trusting one of my 150GBP stuffed animals with some random person, let alone pay them to handle it.

What if sock kitty is an unrepentant drunk?

/ I know a girl with a sock kitty; who poses her sock kitty with booze. Also, don't poke her toy beaver

The local library does something like this every summer.  Send your stuffed animals to Critter Camp.  They get to go do camp things with other stuffed animals and the librarians send home a bunch of pictures during the week.  My kid made a big deal of getting her toy dog ready to go to camp.  It was adorable.

Why should that bastard, Mr. Fluffenstein, go on a fabulous vacation when I have to work? Stupid stuffed abomination never protected me from monsters, so why should I fork over $55 just so he can lounge by the ocean?

The Toy Soldiers did this a few years ago; we sent an Ugly doll around the world to various members and had its photo taken, even had its own website up, UglysTravels.com (and an epic video). I know the Jedi Assembly (a counterpart to the 501st Stormtroopers) also did the same thing with an Obi-Wan Kenobi doll.

I'll send them my Pooh.

I already have plenty of pictures of a stuffed animal my wife and I own on many adventures that college students take them on.  None of which involve us at all.

Thankfully, most of them are PG.

Can't afford to travel and see the world? Might I suggest a Poverty Safari. You probably won't even need to leave town.

I have no desire to live vicariously through my Cthulu plushie. Although I can think of a couple of cities I might be willing to plunge into madness and apocalyptic destruction if given the opportunity.

I bet if we could lobby congress to have these trips written off on our taxes.

I have a teddy bear who has traveled with me just about everywhere that I have gone since I was a small kid.  The exception is Czechoslovakia.  The little bastard went without me!  I was on a bus tour through central Europe with a bunch of Finns and the group leader ignored me when I told him I needed visas for Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Poland.  He only got it for Poland.  So, I slipped into Hungary by accident but was denied entry into Czechoslovakia.  I was actually taken off the bus under armed guard (this was early 1989, before the wall came down) and had to walk back across the border while the bus turned around.  I ended up having to take a taxi back to Budapest so I could fly to Warsaw the next day.  Well, Lenin, my teddy bear, was left on the bus, so he got to travel through Czechoslovakia and got to visit Krakow, Poland.  My friends were kind enough to take him around Krakow and get lots of pictures of Lenin touring the city.  But, it all balanced out.  I forgot to take Lenin to the Soviet Union with me when I went a few months later!

At a gamin convention about 4 years ago I picked up a big bag of tiny plastic Cthulhu figurines, and I always carry a tiny one in my pocket with me wherever I go.  (You never know when you might need a bit of evil.)   Well, over the years about 6 of them have escaped.  I will get back home, empty my pockets out into the bowl where I keep my wallet, keys, etc., and Cthulhu will be missing.  I can only hope that they are all spreading their evil around the city.

It's not a real vacation unless your stuffed animal comes back with a case of hepatitis C (or malaria).

Send me your stuffed animal and I'll take it to a Bourbon Street strip club.

Well, what the people who are actually taking the pictures have done is get a bunch of people to pay for their vacation to where ever they want, and in return they just have to carry around a bunch of stuffed animals and take the occasional picture here and there.

So you can go to those cities, so long as you're willing to make yourself look a little crazy to everyone around you, and also explain to customs why you're carting around a bunch of stuffed animals.

I wonder how People for the Ethical Treatment of Stuffed Animals (PETSA) feels about this.

Nah.  I bet that they are a bunch of plushophilias who get it on with the stuffed animals.

<memory fail> Actually, the Jedis were sending around a Yoda doll, I just recalled.
