VIDEO: Toddler sends his toy train into space… and back

All thanks to his dad.


SORRY, EVERYBODY: THE ‘best dad in the world’ competition is now over.

It’s been won by graphic artist Ron Fugelseth, who took his four-year-old son’s favourite toy train and sent it into space on a weather balloon.

Then he brought it right back home again. Ron also animated the face of the train – whose name is Stanley, by the way – along the journey.

Look at the kid’s expression when he finds the train. And just think of the playground bragging rights this is going to give him.
