Blue Teddy ID
(Plymouth, united kingdom)
This lovely bear was passed down to me from my grandad who sadly passed away 4 months before I was born in 1980, he had given the bear to my mother and said he wanted this given to his grandchild.
Sadly the bear has faded slightly but I expected this due to the age, I am just wondering if anyone knew anything about the bear...... I think it may be from 1960 era ?
Any help please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Looks to me like he may be a Wendy Boston Bear. These bears were big in the 1960's and a very distinctive style. Short straight limbs and filled with rubber pieces or solid piece of foam.
I have a similar bear myself although mine is all white. You can see my bear here http://www.totallyteddybears.com/white-teddy-bear-1960s.html
I don't think they have a lot of value unfortunately but I would consider them collectibles and who knows in the future they could become more sought after. I love mine and it has lots of memories for me so I would never part with mine.
