Who is this Joe the plumber?

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Who is this Joe the plumber? Just been watching the 365th day of coverage of the US election - and I reckon it’s sending me crazy.

Reminds me a little of the Don’t Tell Sid adverts the Tories ran when they sold off the gas in the 80s. That seemed to work as people love the common touch. Either that or they knew they were getting a bargain and bought into it just to make a quick buck.

So will people buy in to Joe the plumber? Maybe we should get a teddy bear called Joe the Plumber - could be a big seller if John McCain gets to be president.

Only problem for us is that we don’t deliver to the US and I’m not sure people in the UK could care less who this average Joe is. By the way, we have our very own average Joe - he’s called Joe Bloggs.

This blogging is all new to me

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

I put it off and put it off but finally I have admitted myself to the new world of blogging.

Talk about getting set in your ways. I’ve been online since 1996 - way back when the first Mosaic browser came out and downloading via ftp and stuff over JANET. But then I got comfy with the easy browsing and bored with learning another half dozen programs a month and said “right, that’s enough for me.”

I’ve been meaning to have a go, but didn’t know what to write, didn’t think I had anything to say. Well fancy that, seems just like every one else was in the same boat.

But now I have a purpose - to inform the world about teddy bears and teddy bear stuff. It’s a bit of publicity for our company, Teddy Bear Friends, but I’m hoping it might become something that can be useful and used by others so I’m welcoming anyone and everyone to take part and see what we can cobble together.

So here goes, and if I start spouting rubbish please tell me.

Christmas Teddy Bears

Monday, October 27th, 2008

We’ve just put our new range of Christmas Teddy Bears live. This year’s crop is a fantastic bunch of teddy bears with something for everyone.

We have a number of singing and musical teddy bears with Christmas themes including a bear that tells a Christmas Story, Goober singing Jingle Bell Rock and a singing dog who flaps his ears to Jingle Bells. A motley crew if ever there was one.

Christmas Story BearChristmas Story Bear is an excellently made bear who imparts the spirit of Christmas by reading the American Christmas tale ‘Twas the night before Christmas.

Jingle Bell Rock BearJingle Bell Rock Bear will have everyone rocking ‘n’ rolling this Christmas as he sings Jingle Bell Rock while moving his head and shaking a set of golden bells that have flashing lights at the end.

Goober is one of Gund’s most popular bears and comes in many guises although this is a particularly brilliant bear.

Teddy Bear Friends will shortly be putting live some collectible Christmas bears from Teddy Hermann and we also hope to have festive Steiff bears in stock and ready to buy for at Christmas.

Keep watching and we’ll try and keep you updated as soon as new stock arrives.
