A Japanese travel company is giving people the chance to send their cuddly toys on holiday.

Unagi Travel charges from £12 to £34 for the service, depending on the destination and the size of the toy.

The company says the unusual offer particulary appeals to people who are unable to go on holiday themselves.

One woman customer told the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper: "I want to see and walk around the sights that I viewed through my stuffed animal's journeys someday."

The 51-year-old lady had reportedly been unable to get out much due to an illness that made it difficult for her to walk.

According to reports, sending her stuffed animal on holiday encouraged the woman to get medical help and she was eventually able go out regularly again.
