Teddy Bears

 

“In a world where everyone seems to be larger and louder than yourself,
it is very comforting to have a small, quiet companion”

Peter Gray

Teddy bears have been around with us for a long time, and many of us will own up to having our own special teddy bear.   I sent my Auntie Joan a gift of a teddy bear once - she named him Edward - a big brown bear, he was, and now he sits proudly on the shelf in her room in her nursing home.   He was one of the things she chose to bring from home when she had to move in.  She is 94.  You're never too old for teddy bears!

There are some wonderful teddy bears around these days, and quite a few of them give the owner a link to a special period in their lives when they were part of something, or they just make wonderful themed bears.  

This is a Jacobite Teddy Bear! This is a Jacobite Teddy Bear and Teddy comes with a kilt, shield and blue bonnet!  This Jacobite Teddy Bear would be a great gift for history lovers of all ages.  Teddy is 25 x 20 cm.  You can buy this bear from the National Trust for Scotland for £10.00
 

 

 

“It is astonishing, really, how many thoroughly mature, well-adjusted grown-ups harbor a Teddy bear
which is perhaps why they are thorougly mature and well-adjusted."
