Can anyone pick up my child's teddy bear from San Felipe?


Hello-
We went through San Felipe on Jan 6th and sadly left my 6 year old son's most favorite teddy bear and baby blanket at the hotel!! They have informed me it is impossible to mail it.

I'm looking for any kind soul who is passing through San Felipe and could pick it up and then mail back to me from the US. I will gladly pay all postage and additional funds to cover your time and inconvenience. It is his most special baby toy he has had since he was born.

The hotel is called El Capitan and is in San Felipe. They are holding the items at the desk. If you are willing to help out please let me know and I'll send along my details and we can arrange payment via paypal or whatever works for you.

Thank you in advance!

Colleen: I plan on staying at that hotel towards the end of this month. I would be happy to pick the bear up and get it to you.

What did you think of the hotel? Was the parking secure?

Hopefully it's not stuffed with drugs.

I've stayed there many times and it was OK. Not great and not bad. I have a friend who stayed there I think last year and his room had bed bugs. I always liked the location and the parking has been secure.

Colleen,
No offense, and i feel really bad for bringing this up, but a first time poster, asking someone to pick up a package and bring it across the border, thats asking some complete stanger to accept alot of risk. i wish I could help out, but i'm just not willing to risk it,. Hoepfully someone else here is willing to do it, and it all turns out great for your child, but sorry, i just can bring myself to chance it.

If it weighs more than a couple of kilos you may have reason to worry. Otherwise it’s just a teddy bear for a kid who is probably too old to be playing the teddy bears still. Hopefully somebody comes through.

On second thought maybe this is the perfect time to wean Junior!

street value of 1 pound of crystal Meth - 36,000 dollars, whats the weight of a teddy bear and a blanket? and whats the weight of a teddy bear stuffed with 1 lb of meth, with one pound of filling pulled out?
I truely hope its some kid who wants his bear back, but for a 1st time poster, whom I know nothing about, I'm not hauling stuff across the border for them, even though I feel badly for the kid

What an embarrassing introduction to Nomads this has become.

Does the lady really need the amateur psychoanalysis and the drug running suggestions? If you have no reason to accommodate, butt out.

It's a teddy bear, fer cryin out loud! Maybe it has sentimental importance to the mom, as well. Is that so awful?

This might be the best example why so many good Nomads just don't post anymore.

Hello, and thanks fandango. After all that's been said, if you're still willing to help out I'd appreciate it. I guess I have no way of assuring people that it is just a teddy bear. As someone pointed out I'm new to the forum, and really just joined on someone's suggestion so I could get this dealt with.

Fandango - I don't know if there is a way we can continue this conversation off the forum (if you're still up for helping out)?

I thought El Capitan was a good hotel - fair price and very clean. The parking was safe.

Thanks.

I am a senior citizen and I still wish I had my teddy bear that I
named Freckles. :biggrin:

Teddy bears are important! Maybe tell your child that the bear is hibernating and might return when it wakes up.

Good luck.

You posted to the right place and I am sure teddy will get home.

So, I have a story: when I was a teen in Brazil, I went to babysit a 6 year old who had a teddy named Pierre. The family had just arrived in Rio and their place wasn't ready yet, so they were in a hotel on the 28th floor.

Mom and dad go off and pretty soon it is time for the kid (can't remember his name) to go to bed and he puts up a royal fuss. At one point, he goes to the barred window and tosses PIERRE 28 FLOORS DOWN into the pool area. I call down and no way to get the teddy as the pool area was closed down for the night.

I felt so bad.

When Mom and Dad got home and heard the story, they laughed and said "we've been trying so long to think of a way to get rid of that dirty raggedy ole bear!" and they were so happy!

Isn't it interesting how the brain works? This happened some 40 years ago and I have never forgotten. The bear's name comes right to mind and if my life depended on it, too bad because I have never been able to recall the kid's name.
