Travelocity may have started it with its jet setting gnome, but the new trend is taking pictures of inanimate objects in various places around the world. The only problem is to send your toy to get its picture taken in front of the Eiffel Tower means that you've got to get your own plane ticket.
If you just want to jump on this trend and don't have the time to take a travel tour around the world, then what you need is Prague company Toy Traveling. No, it's not a joke, you really can pop your toy in the mail and they will arrange your stuffed toy or any other non-perishable item to go globetrotting to have its photo taken at some of the world's greatest wonders.
There's no doubting that Toy Traveling is taking advantage of this strange new trend, but there's also really no question that when the fun in it dies, the company will go with it. But in the meantime, it's a fun idea while it lasts!
