Grandparents' Traveling Game: Find Pandy

My friend R (who I recently quoted here) has parents who often travel. Recently, on a trip to China they came up with a fun way to share the story of their trip with their grandchildren. They took with them a small stuffed panda and included him in many of their pictures.
After they got home they used the pictures to make up a slide show. This allowed the kids to have fun finding the panda in each of the pictures (kind of like a personalized Where's Waldo!) while at the same time learning about a new culture and hearing about their grandparents' experiences.
I think this is such a special gift! Wouldn't this kind of thing also be a neat idea for overseas missionaries who have children's presentations to give in the States during their furloughs?
