Big T has also been with me since 1966. He was also well loves, both my teddys getting played with a lot as I didn't like dolls. He has lost an eye which I have somewhere. As a claim to fame an identical bear appeared in the BBC sitcom SORRY but I can't identify him, can you.

What I know
by: Claire

I has his bear in my birth year 1966; I played with him a lot as I was not keen on dolls, hence he is very threadbare and floppy now. He is nearly 60.
