My grandmother gave me a bear when I was three. He had gold coloured fur when I first received him, but is very bare now. I would never go to bed without him, probably the reason he is so threadbare now. He has a few areas where he has begun to get holes in him and I am not sure whether to get him repaired or not. There are no distinguishing marks or tags on him. He has hard sewn on or glued on eyes, sewn on nose (almost gone) and paw marks. He is about 14 1/2 inches or 37 cms tall. His nose and mouth area are raised but not protruding. He was purchased in Australia around 1962. He is most likely an inexpensive bear, but I would not sell him for $1 million. I think he is the most beautiful bear ever, and I've not seen any the same. I would love to know more about him if anyone knows anything. Thank you.

Beautiful bear!
by: Megan

Hi there, I'm Megan and I'm 16.

My mum had one of these bears and passed it onto me, his name is Dave. I've never seen one like him until mum came across this! Like yours, Dave has become a rather bare bear and has had many patches of fur put on from mum, including a new snout (this is flat) because he's been cuddled so much. I don't know about your bear but Dave has been sat down so much that all his stuffing has collected in the bottom, so he's got a rather large rear end and not much to him at the top! We also keep him in a baby grow we found one day to try and keep him somewhat intact, though my grandmother has sewn clothes too.
I'm so happy to have found another precious bear that's survived the times!

Thank You

Thank you to those of you who identified my bear as a Wendy Boston bear. I had never heard of this brand before. I'm pleased to have at least found out that much about him. Anyone willing to post a pic of their Wendy Boston bears? I'd love to see them.

This is definitely a Wendy Boston bear , I also have one I have had since I was a baby so 47 now his tag would have been on the inside of his legs.
