When Meredith Craven's boyfriend Mark Thompson was leaving her for a tour of duty in the British Army, Craven got Thompson a stuffed penguin to keep him company.

Thompson began snapping pictures of the cute toy, named Mumbles, all over the globe -- from Kenya to Philadelphia -- and sending them to Craven to keep her appraised of his travels.

Craven is reportedly delighted by all the incredible places Mumbles has been, including meeting some real penguins in the Falklands.
