In the Saturday Herald Sun’s In Black and White section yesterday, Steve Perkin had readers send in photographs of their teddy bears. Looking at the names, he was inundated with photos and stories from the blue rinse brigade – Dulcie, Irene, Barbara, Pat, Eileen…

My favourite was from Judy:

“I have my mother’s teddy bear, given to her when she was just three, in 1918. He is totally hairless, but otherwise intact and still very much loved. He sits next to my teddy, who must be nearly 60, on a chair in my bedroom’’.

Wow, Judy! My teddy bear, at a mere 30-something years of age, now resides at my nan’s house, where the great grandchildren play with it. The Bloke in the Shed still has his, which Princess Ella and Li’l Holly constantly play with. It begs the question: just which will be Ella’s “teddy to keep’’:

Yep, there’s a few there to choose from. And that’s not adding Holly’s into the mix.

I’m quite fascinated to see and hear all the stories of people’s beloved teddy bears. If you do want to share, you’re more than welcome to upload your teddy bear photo to the Three Li’l Princesses Facebook page. I’d love to see it.

And then, of course, you’d best get clicking on this week’s giveaway links.

  1. I think my old soft toys that survived my childhood are at my Dad’s in NZ. CrashHubby’s old teddy bear is here and the kids play with it. What I do know is the kids also have a lot of soft toys to choose ‘the one’ from! Too many!

      Yes, makes you realise how much stuff kids get today compared to earlier generations.
      Love that the blokes in our lives still have hold of their teddies, Laney. 🙂

  2. I never had a bear as a child, not sure why, but for my 13th birthday my Mum felt this needed to be rectified and bought me a huge blue one, which my kids now have at different times in their bedrooms.
