This is MENTAL! Talk about granting your kids' greatest wishes. As per Digital Spy, Ron Fugelseth took his son's treasured Stanley train (with his permission of course), attached it to a weather balloon complete with a HD camera and mobile phone for a GPS signal and sent it into space.
"My 4-year-old and Stanley are inseparable like Calvin and Hobbes... He's been attached to him since he was two, and they play, sleep and do everything together... I animated Stanley's face with After Effects and Photoshop to bring him to life how I imagine my son sees him... I didn't want Stanley to be a murderer. Plus I wanted to make sure my son got Stanley back. :)"
