I'd be honestly wary to give it to lost and found bureau.

My friend was always losing his iPhones. Even when he was able to track it down to the Railway Station and could see where the phone was (in the lost and found bureau) on the App from his mac at home, they refused to look for it!

He thinks they keep them and sell them after a while for profit. or swiped it themselves. (Conspiracy Theories).
Well they won't be able to do that anymore. If an iToy running iOS 7 has been connected to iCloud with "Find my phone" activated then a stolen or lost iToy cannot be reactivated, even after a complete DFU restore, without entering the user ID and password for the iCloud account. Basically it'll be a brick.

Apple won't even service iToys until "Find my phone" is deactivated.
