Looking for more info about my bear

Front of my teddy bear

Have had my bear for almost 30 years now and was looking to see if anyone knew anything about 'em.


The story was that after I was born my mother had taken me to some sort of thrift shop and an old man that worked there said I absolutely had to have the bear. I think it was in more or less the same condition when I was given it (certainly wasn't new but likely was a bit cleaner!), so no idea how old it might be. No tags present so not sure of the brand either.

Anyone out there possibly have any info or a similar bear?

I know this bear!
by: Melissa S

I have this same bear - and more importantly have purchased a replacement for it recently.
Mine looks identical to this and is a 1979 Dakin "Cuddles" bear.

Info about very similar bear
by: Gina

My husband has a VERY similar bear, from what I can see in the pictures. The only differences are that 1) the tail on my husband's is attached horizontally, rather than vertically, 2) the nose is made of many stitches of black yarn/thread, whereas yours looks like it's a shiny plastic, and 3) my husband's has a shiny bow that is just about the same color as the bear itself.

The tag on my husband's bear says:
1979 DAKIN INC.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
PA REG. NO. 110
ALL NEW MATERIALS
CONTENTS:
POLYESTER
PRODUCT OF KOREA
