6" Yellow Plush Bear, lost 2006
(Harlow & Lincoln)
Yellow teddy bear
I have been trying to identify this cute bear for a few years now with a view to finding a replacement. My daughter and Yellow Ted were inseparable, especially at bed time or when ill but it was dropped in the Lakeside Retail Centre at Thurrock, UK and in spite of contacting them straight away, it was not handed in. I hoped that she would forget about it over the years but that hasn't happened and sometimes when she is a bit sad she "wishes I still had yellow ted". At Christmastime, I always have another go at identifying or finding out more about Yellow Ted to see if I can find another as a surprise but so far no retailer has been able to help.
It is about 6" tall, yellow plush with a white tummy, paws and inner ears, is very floppy at the neck, arms and legs (which were not jointed) and I am pretty sure it does not contain a squeaker or anything and there was a little stubby tail. The eyes, nose and mouth are very dark brown or black embroidering. I think it had a soft filling, not beans. The logo on the label is just visible in the photo, a quartered square design in pastel pink, green, blue and yellow and what looks like a "2" with a sun ray design fanning out and some embroidered wording on its leg. The label design looks familiar but I can't place it. After a couple of years of cuddling by my daughter to be honest it was no longer very yellow and a bit tatty when it was lost.
Please help with any information, even if you only recognize the label!
