Delightful teddy bears from The Great British Teddy Bear Company

“In a world where everyone seems to be larger and louder than yourself,
it is very comforting to have a small, quiet companion”

Peter Gray

Teddy bears have been around with us for a long time, and many of us will own up to having our own special teddy bear.   I sent my Auntie Joan a gift of a teddy bear once - she named him Edward - a big brown bear, he was, and now he sits proudly on the shelf in her room in her nursing home.   He was one of the things she chose to bring from home when she had to move in.  She is 94.  You're never too old for teddy bears!

There are some wonderful teddy bears around these days, and quite a few of them give the owner a link to a special period in their lives when they were part of something, or they just make wonderful themed bears.  I came across these from the Great British Teddy Bear Company which you can buy direct from the company or in the case of the bears below from Amazon.  They include Roger, the Official Bomber Command Memorial Bear .  Just click on the bear to find out more!   All the bears were £29.95 at the time of writing.
