Do we have a benevolent version of this trope? Where the clingyness isn't an annoyance or part of a curse, but a beneficial enchantment? Like a Transformation Trinket or magical artifact that can't be lost or stolen - it can always be pulled out of the character's pocket or out of hammerspace, or otherwise be recalled at will.

Clingy MacGuffin seems to focus almost entirely on the negative side, while Empathic Weapon sometimes has this as one of its traits, but it is by no means the defining feature. It seems to me this sister trope of Clingy MacGuffin deserves its own page and trope name.

What about "Jumanji"? Even though it doesn't return to its original owner, it finds its way to civilization when someone discards it.
