NOT A ZOTTY.... WHO AM I?
by Anna J
My late grandfather gave me this bear in the early 60's, he received it from a friend that used to work for Steiff. The bear did have the button and the tag but both were lost through the years. My bear is in good shape other than I used to feed it my food so it's got a bit of staining to its open mouth. It also has a growler/squeaker in its chest. Oh yes and I will be bringing it back one day to the Steiff hospital for arm reattachment surgery. My kind little brother decided to pull it off one day back in the late 70's. But even the arm has been kept in great shape I always looked after all of my Steiff animals. And he was never allowed to touch it again. This bear happens to be my favorite. I'm unsure if this bear was ever considered a Zotty bear as I remember the tag having a different name on it. As the years have passed I have forgotten the name but I'm sure the name never started with a Z. Can anyone help please?
