Montreal Has A Teddy Bear Hospital

Probably the cutest shop in the city
Montreal Has A Teddy Bear Hospital

I was driving around downtown yesterday on a road I've driven on hundreds of times when I came to a stop at a red light. On my right was a store I had seen a few times before but never actually looked at. Then I read the window "Hospital pour personnes en tissue" which translates to: Hospital for people made of fabric.

That's like the cutest thing in the world.

You can just imagine a sad little kid bringing their "injured" teddy bear to the doctor and the smile on their face when they get assured their fabric friend is going to be okay. 

If that wasn't cute enough, their slogan is "Smiles won't fade in the wash". No, wait never mind that's not the cutest thing. The name Raplapla, I don't know what that is but it sure is fun to pronounce.
