The wish of Alice, who loves unicorns, was recently granted by her mailman in Richland. The five-year-old wrote a letter to him, including a unicorn picture.

As Melissa Aardal recounted, the kindness of the Washington mailman who took her daughter Alice's unicorn all the way to her door was mind-blowing, as reported by KOMO.

"Somebody went above and beyond and kind of made something real for somebody," Aardal explained. She added that it's incredible that it was happening, and someone was so thoughtful.

According to Aardal, the winning experience resulted from her daughter believing that their local mailman is like Santa Claus since he packages parcels frequently.

This led Alice to write the mailman a letter asking him to deliver her a unicorn. Her letter even included an image of the mythical creature, proving her love for it.

In her interview with KOMO, Aardal said she didn't expect anything in return since they had never met their mailman but still took her daughter to the mailbox anyway.

One week later, Aardal and Alice saw the surprise that was waiting for them outside their home. A unicorn puzzle, a pink unicorn, and a card were all left by the mailman after Alice's request.

A note read, "Dear Alice, I spoke with the unicorn, and we agreed her powers are too much for a little girl, but if you put enough love into this figure of her, she may come to life."

Alice expressed happiness at seeing her wish come true. Meanwhile, to express her gratitude, Aardal left an appreciation card for the mailman and a charm bracelet made by her daughter.

In related news, one Southwest Airlines employee took extraordinary measures to return the Buzz Lightyear toy that a little boy left behind on the flight.

According to a post on Southwest's Facebook page, Hagen Davis has since been reunited with his favorite toy, thanks to Jason, a ramp agent at Little Rock Airport in Arkansas.

The Southwest employee not only returned Buzz to its rightful owner but had returned the toy in a hand-decorated box with a handwritten note describing his mission at Southwest Airlines.
