Do You Have A Teddy Bear Story To Share?

I never knew there was a National Teddy Bear Day, did you? Well, it’s today which means I have to write about it! Because I still have my original Teddy Bear – aptly named Teddy – who looks all of his age plus a few decades. Yes, he has been loved that much over the years! Then, I have his sibling named Tedriana. Tedriana was made with much love by my Mom who decided one year to make my sister and me matching teddy bears as Christmas gifts. I have to ask my sister if she still has hers!

There’s something quite charming about a Teddy Bear, don’t you think? While mine doesn’t look very pretty anymore, as he’s lost all of his hair, I don’t care. He’s very special to me and I can’t get rid of him. I don’t sleep with him anymore (obviously), but I will confess that he holds a special place in my heart and if need be, I would hold him for comfort. So far, I’ve been able to resist, but knowing he’s there is helpful.

What is it about a Teddy Bear? Is he part of the comfort of childhood? Was Teddy the friend when you were younger whom you trusted to tell your secrets to? Who was always ready with a hug to calm you? Did you even have a Teddy? Or was your comfort stuffed plush a different animal or a precious blankie?

Come on…spill your secrets to me, please! Don’t be shy…I’m sure your Teddy or Tedriana would love the notoriety on this special day!

Shine On!

  1. Being a boy I never had one of those…but there was one I stole off my sister to use in so many nefarious adventures. I’m not sure if it was the theft or what I dragged ‘him’ into suffering in those adventures. But the truth be known I think it was the interactions between me and my sister over the thefts that had more meaning πŸ€£β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

    • Thanks for sharing Mark! I love the way you put it – I don’t know many men who had teddy bears but I figured I’d put it out there…I hope you’re having a lovely weekend! πŸ§ΈπŸ’–πŸ€£

      • A great weekend Yvonne, the warmth has arrived and even another seal has visited us to lighten a world that hasn’t had them for a very long time πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

  2. I still have several Teddies. Some are from when I was younger and others were given to my children when the were small and they got left behind with me. Also I have one very special Teddy that I got in London at the 2012 Olympics. He has a Union Jack flag embroidered on his foot. He is a reproduction of an older Teddy. He is very soft and has a lovely look on his face
