Me and my Teddy Bear...........

This is my teddy bear. He is about 40 years old. His left arm is lame due to being hugged and loved over the years. The left arm is also slightly shorter due to being sewn back in the wrong place after the sawdust had come out.



He is a well-travelled bear and has slept in many hotel rooms throughout europe. He used to have an enviable knitted wardrobe of clothing and would have a new knitted suit for each yearly excursion. His bed was usually improvised when abroad and he would have a paper tissue for his blanket (after all he didn't want to be bogged down with heavy bedding whilst in a hot climate.)



Can you guess the name of my teddy? Well I'll give you a clue by showing you behind his left ear. He used to be this colour all over.


His name was and still is........................ GOLDIE!

My old teddy bear has been relegated to the back of my wardrobe now, but he is still there, eyeless and bald, bless him!
I can't ever remember naming him though.

I love Goldie! I have a stuffed dog named Scraps who has to be one of the best-travelled stuffed animals ever. He has gone on every trip with me.

I'm glad you still have Goldie.

I think Goldie looks rather cute with his arm sewn back slightly wonky, it makes him even more lovable! x

Bless, Unfortunately my teddy had to go to teddy bear heaven a few years ago. Somehow he got damp and became infested with mould and we couldn't save him :-(

aww. I have my baby teddy still as well. I love that he travels with you. It's so important to hang on to a little of that childhood.

He is gorgeous!!!! What size is he? He looks really small. I still have my teddy that I was given when I was 2 and he currently lives in Fred's bed - but he is huge! And has the very original name of "Ted"!

I should think that your little Ted has a lot of stories to tell..
The old chewed teddies are the best!
