vintage panda teddy bear from the 60's
This bear was my cousins bear. He won it at the red river exhibition in Winnipeg, Manitoba in .the 60's sometime . I always liked it. Every time I went over to my aunts house I always asked if I could have the bear , but she always replied sorry my dear but that bear is billy's and I cannot give him to you. Later in years my aunt passed and my cousins asked if I would like the bear because he knew I liked it and I was very happy to finally be the proud owner of the panda bear. The bear has a eye missing which my aunt replaced with a button , Stands 30 inches tall including the ears. He's wearing a tuxedo and also has a hard plastic snout on him . . He spent most of his life in a clear plastic bag on my aunts bed.It could use a professionals touch in the way of a good cleaning and slight restoration , such as a new eye and perhaps a new button like object on the front of him. I really love him and hope you love him too! I almost forgot to tell you his name Its Andy, yes Andy Panda from Canada!!!
