TOBY the Bear is back home after his kidnapping ordeal.
The 3ft high plastic bear sits outside the Scope charity shop on New Street, Huddersfield, collecting cash.
But on August 25 he was stolen after shop staff forgot to bring him inside at the end of the day.
Luckily, later that night customers at the near by Greyhound pub on Manchester Road saw two men carrying Toby.
They followed them and rescued Toby, then appealed in the Examiner for his owners to come forward.
Shop manager Amanda Burda, 41, of Waterloo, said that as soon as the appeal was in the paper people began ringing up and saying it was Toby.
"Firstly, I told the police and then went and got him. We are so glad to get him back," she said.
"Toby does make a lot of money for us, but we often empty him so there is never much in him. We were very upset when we realised we had left him out. We won't forget him again."
