My husband was born in 1979. He cannot remember life without this bear. Naturally the brown bears name is Bear. No one in his family can remember where this bear came from and who gave him to my Husband. His mom thinks it was given to him when he was 2 or 3 which would mean it was somewhere around 1981-1982. When we met in high school he still brought his bear everywhere. All of his friends at the time knew Bear and treated like part of the group. Still to this day everyone who knows us knows Bear. As a child I had a Muffy doll. When my husband and I started dating it was natural for Bear and Muffy to become best friends. They have been inseparable ever since. My husband wouldn't go to a party without him. I don't know how many times we were out partying, with Bear, and used the line "who's driving?" with the response "Bears driving, oh no!" It has been an ongoing joke amongst our friends for the last 15 years. I have been sick in the hospital for weeks at a time for the last 10 years and Bear has been there with me. It's the best way to have a piece of my husband stay with me in the hospital. When I had our twins last year Bear was there, Muffy too of course. We have been able to find a new Muffy doll to give to our daughter. We would love to find a new Bear to give to our son. These are Bear's specifications. Bear is brown in colour, with lack spots on his feet and in his ears. His nose and eyes are also black. Baer is wearing a yellow night cap that is stitched over one ear onto his head with a pompom attached to the end of the cap. He has lost his night gown though. He used to wear a night gown that was also yellow and had "Sweet Dreams" written across it. My husband can't remember if it was printed or written or what colour it was done in. Bear is approximately 12.5" tall. This would mean the world to my husband if I was able to find one of these bears that he would be able to give to our son. We love the idea of our children growing up having something that was and still is so important to us in a version that is all their own. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope that someone can help us find a new Bear.
