Little Boy Lost His Stuffed Tiger At Airport, So Airport Employees Surprised Him With An Incredible Gesture!

Traveling with kids can be… interesting – especially when airports are involved.


To make those treks go a little more smoothly, it’s common for parents to supply something ‘comforting.’ For example, that could be a bag of candy, an iPad or maybe even an adorable tiger named Hobbes. For the Lake family, they went with the latter.

Their little buddy was working perfectly for their 6-year-old son Owen until he left Hobbes at the Tampa International Airport airport during a layover to Houston. Thankfully, the staff found Owen’s adored tiger hanging out by the children’s play area.

But then they took it to the next level and did something awesome: they took the tiger on an awesome adventure.

    From helping with luggage and chatting with control towers to snacking away at the food court (yes, that meant eating his favorite ice cream) Hobbes had the time of his life!
