There’s something pretty special about your first proper teddy bear isn’t there? My Mum still has the little ted that her Dad bought her when she was a girl. Chloe is rather fond of my first teddy bear – who isn’t actually a teddy bear but a well loved and scruffy looking sausage dog called “Chippy”. He has very worn paws as I used to make him a string lead and pull him around like a real dog. I remember claiming he lived on a diet of potato products.
It has become tradition in our house that Aunty Nic buys the first, special cuddly for her nieces and nephew. She bought Ben “Fufus” for his first birthday, Chloe had “Mr Mouse” from birth and Amy has had “Alfie the Patch Dog” from birth too. These are the bears which I insisted must be machine washable, the bears which they sleep with every night, the bears which will eventually look tired and saggy and very very loved. I’ve always been very strict that they don’t really leave the house unless we’re going somewhere over night, I never wanted to be chasing a lost teddy bear around the country. That said Fufus has still been left in Milton Keynes and had to catch a lift home with the postman before now!

Aunty Nic has also bought each of them a very special teddy bear for their christenings – these are more display bears which sit on a shelf in their bedrooms. I love that she has bought each of them their own version of the same gift if you see what I mean. If you’re looking for a special bear then British Teddies have some super cute ones which would make a lovely presents, not just for little ones either!

Do you still have your first teddy bear? Or have your children got special teddies that they have to take everywhere with them?
