Little white lies can sometimes come back to bite us. But for this family, the little white lie they told their son turned into an extreme adventure the whole family will cherish forever.
Come and see what happened when a little boy lost his favourite stuffed animal and his parents headed to the land of Reddit to ask for help.
A lost toy. A Reddit post. And an entire Internet of Photoshop warriors is all it took to turn one little boy’s frown upside down.
After a very upset little boy lost his beloved Elephant, his parents did what all great parents do in this circumstance – they made up a white lie to prevent even more tears.
No, the Elephant didn’t move to the farm like every childhood pet we ever had, but rather, he is touring the world. Or that’s what the parents told their son. Their mates then posted a picture on Reddit, calling on Photoshoppers to join them in their genius ploy.
It turns out a lot of people like Photoshop.
From Australia to Norway, from Cambodia to Easter Island, the grey nomad elephant has been photo-shopped in pretty much every situation imaginable.
He’s even been to the moon, been immortalised in a famous painting and helped Wales into The Euro 2016’s Semi Finals.
Seriously, this stuffed toy is living the life travellers’ bucket lists are made of- posing in front of the Parthenon in Greece, touring the rivers in Italy, chilling with penguins in Antarctica and running with the bulls in Spain.
He even hitched a ride on the Titanic with Leo.
It’s so nice to see his heart will go on, even without his beloved owner by his side.
Head over to Bored Panda to watch as the submissions roll in.

Travel on little dudes. For as long as there is Photoshop and lost toys, the adventures are bound to continue.
