Winnie The Pooh Bear 1980's
Winnie the pooh 1980's Teddy Bear
I used to be a school teacher and part of my duties was to help run a jumble sale my school ran throughout the year.
We are talking 25 to 30 years ago now when i last worked at the school and helped run one of these sales. On this last occasion we were packing everything up and the goods which were not sold were being bundled up to either be thrown away or given to charity.
My eye spotted this Winnie the pooh bear sitting forlornly on one of the tables. Yes he did not look anything special and he was rather tatty but i still could not believe that no one wanted to buy him. I couldn't bear the thought that he was going to be thrown away again and so for the grand price of 25p I brought him home to join my other bears.
I know nothing about his history or what company made him as he has no labels. I know he is at least 25 years old and looks like he is based on the drawings of Winnie the pooh in the books rather than the Disney films. It would be interesting to know if anyone else has a similar bear and if they know more about him.
He currently sits on my bed where he keeps company with about 12 other teddy bears and moves to a chair every night so that both I and my husband can get into bed. My husband seems to have a soft spot for him too as i think he brings back memories from our early days together.
