My Lovely Old Teddy

I've had this bear since I was a child in the 80s. I'm sure a family friend had him much longer. There's no longer a tag by which to identify my bear, but I vaguely remember one. He's an unjointed bear with red and black plastic eyes, a prominent nose which has a black plastic moulded piece, and maybe 11- 13 inches. He has a rather solid feeling body. I've looked all over for another bear like mine, but no luck yet. He may not be very old, but I want to know who made him. I haven't been in contact with the family friend who gave him to me in years. I have no info other than he's been around for more than 40 years. It would be great to identify his maker and maybe find out more about his origins. I would love to make a guess, but do not know much about the different brands of Teddy bears. I do have a Knickerbocker bear that I'm sure about, but this bear is my favorite and has survived many moves and most importantly, my childhood. Could he be a Pedigree bear?

Your bear came with a Blue! or a Yellow bow on his neck when he was new! The one I found had a blue bow and was still factory sealed in a box! box shows yellow bow as well on the back pic!

Hey! Yes he is the same bear!
by: Rich

Yes your bear is the same as mine foam guts and I still have his eyes just like yours. You commented on my bear a while back! The bear was made in 1980. He was a 16-inch bear made for the wellness company. They had a line where they made a special version that year for some reason no one can explain! But! I did find one on eBay! a while back. He had a tag and was identical to your bear and mine! I hope it helps! The Tag has blue/red fibers that make letters on a white tag! Wellness at the top! With product info in small print! with a Copyright on the back with a year! Ah ring a bell
:)

Your Teddy and Mine are alike!
by: Anonymous

Oh my goodness! Our teddy s are so much alike. Exactly alike, in fact, except for the nose. Mine is brown and yours is black. I do hope you find the creator and year it was "born". ;-)

Yes he does look like a modern bear i.e made in the last 40 years. He shows all the classic teddy bear making signs that were around then.

Due to the high number of makers around during this time without a label it can be near impossible to discover the maker, unless someone else has the same bear and knows. Lets hope someone knows him and will comment.
