A truly priceless Build-A-Bear

Before Marilyn Soriano died last year, she put her voice into a teddy bear. She give it to her daughter, Mara. It was a custom-made Build-A-Bear made to look like Marilyn, glasses and all. When squeezed, it said, "I love you. I'm proud of you. I'll always be with you." But recently the teddy was stolen from Mara during a hectic move.

Mara's pleas for the bear's safe return were widely heard. Actor Ryan Reynolds offered $5,000 for the bear's safe return, no questions asked. Others chipped in money, raising the total reward to $15,000, and within a few days Mara had her bear back, voice box intact. She said two "good Samaritans" returned the bear after they found it at a park nearby.
