White Teddy Bear 1960s
My White Teddy Bear
This is my white teddy bear which I have had since I was 2 years old. I am now 45 so this makes this teddy at least 43 years old.
I have always had mixed feeling about this bear. She is my oldest teddy bear but I don't seem to have many memories of her from when i was very young. Plus she was sort of a replacement toy. I owned a white teddy bear which I Iost in my local bakery. I cried and cried so much that my mother took me back to the bakery who did not have my bear but had found another white teddy bear, obviously lost by some other child. This bear became mine and has been with me ever since.
I have always thought she is a rather unusual teddy bear due to her shape. She has a waist and thighs and a rather protruding behind. She must have had a label once on her leg but someone has removed it. Her eyes are blue and black plastic and she feels like she is filled with hard solid foam.
I have never seen another teddy like her and would love to know if anyone else has seen a similar bear or perhaps even know what company made her.
