An Oakland couple is offering a $1,000 reward for two tiny stuffed bears worth $10, over their sentimental value.
Christopher Ferreira and his girlfriend bought the toy bears two years ago in Japan, but to Ferreira, they aren’t just toy bears. He has photographed the Korilakkuma-style toys, named Number 1 and Number 2, while travelling the world and has made elaborate home movies.
On January 24th, Ferreira said they were dropped accidentally at the AMC Bay Street 16 Theater in Emeryville. Since then he has posted flyers, held up signs and started a website where you can contact him to turn the bears in.
