Kylie’s Woop Woop Bear is stressed, bored and needs a Holiday!
He wants to travel the world before he gets too old.
Woop Woop bear would love to meet new people, see new sights and have lots of exciting experiences.
Can you offer Woop Woop a Holiday? Nice, kind, loving people are wanted to give Woop Woop the best adventure of his life! He would like people to bid on him, give him a great holiday then to relist him on Ebay for his next experience so he can carry on his travels.
Woop Woop really wants to travel for about a year and the return back to be with his owner Kylie in England who has loved him for over 20years. Then his ambition is to write a book and have a website to tell others about the people he met and his travel experiences.
Conditions of bidding are that you are nice and loving. You will help keep Woop Woop safe for Kylie. Write at least 1 postcard and 1 email to send back to his home in to the UK, take him to as many interesting places as possible (he likes adventure & socialising). Oh, and if you know anyone famous Woop Woop would love to meet them as he is a bit of a luvy. Take plenty of photo’s for him to use in his book. Relist him on Ebay so he has a minimum of 3 days & maximum of 10 days holiday with you. Then whoever is looking after him in May 2006 to return Woop Woop safely back to his home in the UK.
Any money you make on relisting him on Ebay you keep to help you pay for his board and lodgings or any new clothes you want to give him.
Woop Woop Bear has his own passport and will come BEARing a mystery welcome gift as a thank you for letting come and stay with you.
