And if you’re looking for cool and hip teddy bears at low prices you might want to come on down to Teddy Bear Friends.

Our Summer Sale is still on - find a bargain bear today!

I’ve added my favourite teddy bear commercial below…

Peg The Hedgehog is on her Travels

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Travelling TeddyWe’ve had a weekend of fun with Peg The Hedgehog who Oliver got to look after during the Mayday Bank Holiday.

This cuddly soft toy came with a change of clothes and her very own book bag that is filled in by the child who takes it home.

Take a Bear Home

We’ve had a number of experiences with this kind of thing over the last few years and it seems to be catching on in schools and nurseries within the UK, where the children take it in turn to take the soft toy or teddy bear home and look after them.

The books are filled with photos of excited kids and funny stories of what they got up to.

Start Your Own School’s Teddy Bear Adventure

If you’ve not done this sort of thing before at your school why not give it a go. It’s a real simple idea and really helps the pupils with the concept of looking after someone. It gives them a great chance of writing about something in which they have had a central role.

Peg is back at school and will be with someone else this week but will always hold a special place in Oliver’s heart.

Election 2010 - Who Will Get Your Vote?

Ideal Mascots for Political Parties

Cookie MonsterCookie Monster for Conservatives

Never mind the Big Society - whatever that means - Cookie Monster will be cheering on Eton’s finest, “call me Dave” Cameron so long as he doesn’t cut the biscuit budget!

Big ElmoElmo is for Labour and Gordon

One week to go and Gordon Brown has sounded off at one of his own supporters. Any more gaffes like that and he’ll be a goner - maybe he should take a leaf out of Elmo’s book and be a little nicer to us common folk.

Big BirdBig Bird will cheer on Nick

Thought of voting for Nick Clegg last week - looks a little like my brother - but then we all think of voting for Liberals but never do! Big Bird might be appropriate as he is a bird that cannot fly and LibDems are a party that cannot govern.

Big Cordy RabbitCordy votes for the Green Party

As for the Greens - they’ll have us eating only vegetables so we thought it appropriate to give them a big green rabbit as a mascot.

Eco BearEco Bear backs the SNP

This teddy bear sports a tartan neck ribbon and will be backing the Scottish Nationalist Party as he likes a bit of Salmon(d) for his tea.

Who Gets your vote?

Any ideas for mascots are warmly welcomed but given the current status of politicians in the UK (and the world given the mess they’ve helped create with their banker friends) I won’t hold my breath for too many friendly suggestions!

Afterbirth or Afterbearth?

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Doing It For The Kids is a current exhibition put on by [re] design to showcase the latest, most innovative sustainable toy concepts from around the world.

Designer Alex Green has come up with something that will certainly have some staring while many others won’t bear to look.

Twin Teddy Kit

Green has put together the Twin Teddy Kit or what is being referred to as the Placenta Teddy Bear - an eco-alternative for those who don’t want to eat their baby’s placenta, but want to pay their respects to the life sustaining organ by turning it into a unique teddy bear.

The Twin Teddy Kit “celebrates the unity of the infant, the mother and the placenta,” and enables preparation of the placenta so it may be transformed into a teddy bear.

How do you make a placenta teddy bear?

The placenta is cut in half then rubbed with sea salt to cure it. After it has dried out, it is treated with tannin and egg yoke, an emulsifying mixture that makes it soft and pliable. Then, you shape it into a teddy bear!

The Placenta Teddy Bear is intended to be a keepsake as it can’t be cuddled once inside its glass jar.

You can leave your comments as to whether you think this is a grand idea or something just a little creepy below.

Teddy has had his bear share of Weetabix

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Sitting happily in a field on Malt Kiln Lane, Bispham Green - near Parbold in Lancashire UK - this giant teddy bear is tucking in to a bowl of Weetabix.

The giant bear is 25 feet tall and was built by local farmer Cliff Martland as an entry into the national Wheat Art Competition run by Weetabix and the National Farmer’s Union.

Weetabix is committed to supporting British farmers and farming, with all of the wheat used in Weetabix sourced in Britain.

The competition offers farmers the chance to win up to £5,000 by designing a sculpture or art installation using bales from their farms. There are ten regional £2,000 prizes on offer to farmers in each of the ten television regions in England, Scotland and Wales, and the overall winner will get a further £3,000.

Taken by Neil Evans while he was out on a Sunday drive and printed in the Ormskirk & West Lancashire Champion, this huge bear has a spoon by his side and is looking quite full after his big breakfast.

The sign next to the massive bear reads, “Who’s been eating my Weetabix”.

The huge Gummi Bear is the equivalent of 1,400 of its usual sized compatriots and if you were to finish off this chap you’d find yourself getting a little bit bigger too - as it contains a whopping 12,600 calories!
