I bought a bag of plush animals at a Goodwill store recently. This bear was among the rest so our history together is short lived. I almost tossed it as junk but the more I looked at it, I could tell it was rare. It had a different look and it felt very different than most plush animals. I will describe it in detail doing the best I can to be as accurate as possible.
