This is my childhood bear ‘Growly Ted’, so he is at least 50 years old.

I always remember that he came with two other bears who belonged to my brother, they were called Tickle Teddy and Blue Ted. They moved to Thailand with my brother many years ago, so I hope Growly Ted doesn't miss them too much. Luckily I own many other teddy bears to keep him company.

• Elongated body, with legs shorter than body
• Short arms (no claws)
• Muzzle not shaved
• Replacement stitched-on nose
• Black and amber medium sized plastic eyes
• Shallow, flat, wide ears

So sorry - I just read that he has plastic eyes, this would place him squarely in the late fifties onward. Verna used glass eyes in the late 40's early 50's until all the safety issues started for children's toys. Still a lovely Verna bear. The company was only in operation from 1948 to around the mid 1980's. Not all their bears had the felt nose but some did. Makes them special I think. So nice to see another one as there are not many of them around.

Hi Growley teddy - That stitched on felt nose of yours is NOT a replacement - it's ORIGINAL! and it means that you were made by Verna Toys of Australia in the late 40's to early 50's. I have two of you at home and they say Gidday Mate!
