I have a Steiff teddy bear my grandparents bought for me in West Germany me before I was born.  He's in terrible condition: one eye replaced, re-stuffed multiple times, holes sewn up, flat because I slept on him for years.  I'm really glad I have such a well-loved childhood toy.  It's actually this exact bear.



Actually, not such a high valuably teddy bear, but one of my old friends in Thailand describes her old teddy friend just like that!
And I still remember carrying him through Bangkok in public transportation system in the Christmas crowds, a bear the life size of a common Thai, all of the surrounding crowd pointing and laughing at a big man carrying a bear almost the size of a grown up Thai person in public, embarrassed by the public attention!
And my old girl friend still having such a fond feeling for him!


just came back from the carnival?

Actually Steiff US had a competition for Steiff owners whose bears got some interesting stories behind them. The one who got picked will have the honour of Steiff turning their bear into a limited edition bear and they will get the No.1 which is usually reserved for archive. This year's one I think is called Teddy Poverman. Last year was Teddy Blum from Blum's family..
