Hello friends! Today is National Teddy Bear Day! I took some photos of all of my bears, and I’ve also compiled some facts about my teddy bears. I hope you enjoy!
Here’s a group photo of everyone. After this, I took solo photos of the bears in the order that I got them.
Two of the bears(Lil Choc and Cokie) were initially bought for my mom.
Even though the brand is called Build a Bear, it took 8 Build a Bears before I got a bear. And that was bought for my mom! My first bear was number 13.
Bella was actually recalled! (I explained that some in this post) Periwinkle was originally bought to “replace” Bella. (Not that I could ever really replace a bear)
Periwinkle has 3 names that she is known by. She will answer to Peri, Periwinkle, or Mommy.
Chip is not actually Build a Bear… (but he’s still a part of the BAB collection to me!)
Sandy is Build a Bear, but she’s not one of the Small-frys. I think she came from a line intended for babies.
I didn’t really care much for the bears until Peri and Lil Choc got married and had kids.
More than 50% of the bears are small.
Speaking of statistics, the bears make up 28% of my Build a Bear collection.
You might think I have the biggest stuffed animal collection, but I don’t… 🙂
The biggest Teddy Bear Collection has over 8,000 bears in it! I got that from this site, which has some more fun facts about Teddy Bears.
If you haven’t noticed yet, Cloud is this blog’s mascot.
Cali has had a book written about her called Finding Fame.
I have a total of 19 bears, and I’m planning to ask for 2 more for Christmas. (hehe)
I love how Build a Bear managed to make Kylo Ren look almost cute.
Mischief actually came to me in a dream! I wonder if I hadn’t had that dream if I would have still gotten Mischief.
I really like the idea of getting (at least 1) bear per year. At least for now.
I was SO excited when I found out BAB sold Marvel themed bears.
I got Andy on clearance at BABW – total impulse buy. But I think he fits in well with the rest of the crew!
I had an idea a really long time ago(actually when I was still AG blogging) to make a series where I share the story of getting the Build a Bears. Would you be interested in it?
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about my bear collection! Tell me a little about your favorite teddy bear!
P.S. Aftershock episode 5 is coming up on Friday!
