|“|| A teddy bear is a source of joy and comfort and security and love. Barry was my|
childhood. Everything I went through, he went through. My childhood is missing.
Riley wakes to find her childhood teddy bear, Barry the Bear, missing and enlists the help of her family and friends to find him.
Riley and Maya get ready for Paco's Tacos Tacopalooza. They get ready for the event the night before. Cory comes in to the girl's room and shows that he wants some tacos too and is slightly crazy about them as much as Maya is.
When they awake the next morning, they are about to leave but Riley realises something is wrong. She calls a Matthew's family emergency and Cory says it's just a bear when Riley and Maya are about to leave the house. Riley is affected by this and they eventually stay to find the bear.
