Toy knight Teddy goes on an epic adventure to save his friend Cinderella—inspired by a true story of a beloved lost toy. 

When Teddy’s best friend, Cinderella, goes missing in the middle of the night, he does what any good knight would do—he sets out to save her. But no matter where he looks, he can’t find her, and he wonders, has he failed his friend? Is he too ordinary to be a knight after all? Then a girl comes looking for her lost teddy, and Teddy realizes he can still be a knight after all—for a new friend. The Return of Teddy celebrates the sweetness of friendship with our most special stuffed animals.
