Hello, I was given this teddy bear about 40 years ago (late 1970s) and I have slept with him and cherished him ever since. He is my best friend and goes with me everywhere still. I have always been curious as to his origin because he is pretty unique looking. He measures 13.5 inches tall and 9 inches wide (from foot to foot). He is heavier (i think) than your average teddy bear and is built very solidly! As you can see, he has had multiple surgeries over the years. He used to have a tongue but that got yanked out by my sister when I was a kid. My parents' friend originally gifted him to me and he said he purchased him at a swap meet somewhere in or near Los Angeles. I do not recall him ever coming with any tags.

I would LOVE to trace his history, if anyone happens to have some insight. Thank you so much in advance!!

Lovely to see your bear 🐻

Hello I hope you have been lucky and able to find out something more about him.

I lost this very same brand of bear some years ago, my mum put him out with some other childhood soft toys from her loft when she moved house, found out after they moved by that time it was too late, that was roughly 16 years ago.

Have been looking for him every since then, before that "George" was my best friend too and went everywhere with me, I’m so happy to see your bears face, can’t actually believe it, every so often I take some time and scroll through internet sites with bears 🐻 for sale from the 1970s looking for a bear like George, such a great joy to see him.

I live in Scotland in the UK and I was given George as a gift when I was two or three years of age.
