Blue Bear

Blue Bear

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 dave.reynolds6@me.com

Hi
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.

I have a bear like this one. I was born in 1970, so I think it would be from the 1970's. My bear has a tag that reads "Krueger NYC" on it. My bear has a hard circular thing in its back that used to make a sound of some kind. Mine has lost all eyes and nose and most of his hair. He was carried everywhere!

I had this bear. I think it looks a lot like mine. My parents bought it for me when I was in the hospital having Heart Surgery in 1970. If it is in fact the same bear, it is a Gund. Mine also had a squeaky in the paw. I loved this bear and would carry it everywhere. I would stand at the washing Machine and dryer and scream until it was finished. I still long for this bear. When I was about 10 or 12, my nephew who came from the Philippines, lost it. I have never found it. It makes me terribly sad. I am 46 now, and I still long for this bear!

Hi,

I had this same blue bear - I was given it as a gift when I was a toddler - and a younger friend, born in 1980, also had one.

I don't know which shop or brand the bears were from, but these three are all from different areas of Britain, so maybe they were sold in a chain store.

Perhaps your grandad bought the bear for you not long before he passed away.
