Kids can sometimes be notorious for forgetting things – like leaving their toys in public places. And one kid’s abandoned toy doll became a treasure to the employees at Home Depot. The resulting pictures were hilarious!

The doll, Woody from the Pixar movie Toy Story, was discovered in the store’s parking lot of the Home Depot store in Plaistow, New Hampshire.

The employees who found it thought it would be the perfect opportunity to have a little bit of fun. They dressed up the Woody doll in an orange apron and a mask and put him to work. The newest employee was photographed around the store being the model employee.

As one of the employees, Sarah Hurberdeau, explained to CNN, her coworker thought it would be funny to pretend the little doll was an employee. They even placed him in an employee of the month apron as a joke and then posted the photos to Facebook.

They went on to try to reunite the lost toy with its owner through the hilarious photos which were all placed in the photo album entitled, “Woody’s Home Depot Adventures.” The album has shown the doll to be quite a prolific employee at Home Depot as there are photos of Woody setting up a Christmas tree and driving a forklift.

Of course, the adventure didn’t last that long for Woody. After the photos of Home Depot Woody went viral, Woody’s owner showed up. A little two-year-old boy named Desmond had been the one who ended up leaving Woody in the Home Depot parking lot by accident. As one can only be imagined, Desmond was quite relieved to have Woody back. But the little boy also got a lovely surprise. In the time that Woody had been busy as Home Depot’s newest employee, a kind stranger had bought a Buzz Lightyear toy and dropped it off at the store in order to keep Woody company. This meant that Desmond got to take home an additional toy! Lucky kid.

Referring to the incident, Hurberdeau said to CNN, “My job is done! Finding his home was the main goal and my heart is so full.”
