Stratford Press - - Front Page - By ILONA HANNE

The young­sters at Gr8Kidz Child­care and Learn­ing Cen­tre in Strat­ford are thrilled to have their scare­crow friend back af­ter he went on an ad­ven­ture last week.

Yvonne Me­strom, a preschool teacher at the cen­tre, says the WallE the scare­crow ro­bot had been made by her­self, her hus­band Peter and the chil­dren at Gr8 Kidz for the Strat­ford Scare­crow Trail.

“One of the teach­ers at the cen­tre had the idea to make a WallE-themed scare­crow for the trail, then Peter and I put the frame or main parts to­gether, and the chil­dren then were able to get in­volved in fin­ish­ing it off. They en­joyed be­ing part of mak­ing WallE.”

At some point over the week­end of No­vem­ber 3-4, WallE went miss­ing how­ever.

“When peo­ple came to church on Sun­day, they saw he was miss­ing. So it must have hap­pened some­time be­tween the Satur­day af­ter­noon when he was last seen to Sun­day early morn­ing.”

WallE’s photo was shared on so­cial me­dia, along with an ap­peal for WallE to come home.

“We were thrilled when he came back to us on Wed­nes­day. A cou­ple of peo­ple called in to the cen­tre and said they had found him at their place so they re­turned him to us.”

On Fri­day, WallE was back with the chil­dren at Gr8 Kidz, en­joy­ing plenty of love and at­ten­tion af­ter his ad­ven­ture.

“I think he was play­ing hide and seek with us.” Kait­lyn Buck­land (4) says she thinks WallE was play­ing a game and had found a re­ally good hid­ing spot nearby.

“I like that he came back to stay with us again though. I missed him.”

Bent­ley Walker-To­gisia (4) says he thinks WallE ei­ther hid in a hole some­where or went on a hol­i­day.

“But not on a plane, just some­where else near us. Maybe he had ice-cream to eat when he was away.”
