Happy National Teddy Bear Day!

September 9th is celebrated as National Teddy Bear Day. Teddy Bears and stuffed animals are some of our first friends as children and it's nice to remember them as we get older. We have lots of teddy bears and stuffed animals around here. Shiner's teddy bears have a short lifespan, unfortunately. They are still fun to play with for her at least. 

To celebrate National Teddy Bear Day, Shiner and Callie would like to show off some of their favorite teddy bear friends!

Moooom! You're embarassing me! 

As a kid, my Mom, brother, and I collected TY Beanie Babies. I'm not sure if these are technically real teddy bears or not, but the bears were always the most "collectible" ones. I still have most of our Beanie Babies and here are just a few of them. 

Can I eat these toys?

Another thing I loved as a kid were Care Bears. I still have several Care Bear stuffed animals, but they are from when my oldest daughter was a baby. That's when they started to come back "in style" if you will. 


Callie likes hanging out with the Care Bears too. 


This guy isn't a Care Bear, but he's still pretty soft and snuggly. Teddy Bears definitely make good cuddle partners! 

Did you have a Teddy Bear or favorite stuffed animal growing up? Tell us about them in the comments! Happy National Teddy Bear Day!

  2. TW used to like her stuffed bunnies that she got every Easter. She doesn't really have any left but she still has Gramma's first Teddy Bear that Grampa gave her when they first met. She also has a bear that she bought from Lighthouse for the Blind and one that one of her BFs bought her that practically looks like Gramma's bear.

  6. I guess we missed this important day. We have lots of bears, but Mom was always more for other stuffed animals. Bailie and I like our stuffed wabbits. You guys look great with your bears!

  10. I have a TY Beanie bear too! Teddy bears transcends time and I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like to have one.
