John and his brown Bear
My father gave me a bear, he died when I was five, and the bear was my most cherished possession. I came home from school when I was about ten and it was gone, my mother had decided I was too old for a Teddy Bear and thrown it in the garbage, which had been picked up. How she could not understand what she had done is beyond me.
I recently got the only picture there is of it, if anyone can identify it so that I can try to find one I would greatly appreciate it, it wouldn't be the same, but it would be something.
All I can tell you about it, is it was brown, and I got it about 1970
Thanks for any help
Oh John what a sad story. Parents eh!
Unfortunately bears from this era are quite hard to identify as there were lots of cheap imports coming in from Asia and many bears simply didn't have a particular makers mark to them.
However I will post on my site and on facebook and fingers crossed that someone out there may be able to help you.
I am lucky I still have my childhood bear but no memories associated with it strangely. I guess I just wasn't that sort of kid sadly.
Good luck with your search, I hope you find him again.
Can anyone out there help John?
Best wishes Kate
