*smiles* I wasn't really raised that girly during my childhood and I didn't actually get a Teddy Bear till I was a teenager *laughs*. My mother bought me a white one during Christmas and I was indeed surprised. At that time, I even thought that I was too old for a Teddy Bear. It is still sitting somewhere in my house *smiles*. What about you?

I still sleep with the teddy bear I got when I was 6! It wasn't my first one but it's the one I've had the longest (20 years of sleeping with it!). I kept my 1st teddy bear until the last move a few months ago, it was huge. I had a ton of them, I was the smallest one in the family for a long time so I got spoiled and at one point had over 300! My room was so full of them and I could barely fit in my bed, lol. I've kept maybe 10 now and they're put away.

In Slovakia in that time stuffed toys weren't so popular, but I had one.My mum bring it to me from one city where she was with work.She was gone for three days or so and I missed her.So we went with my dad and my brother wait for her to the bus station and she got this big teddy bear under her arms.I was so happy.It had bib black eyes, red tongue and was so cute and my first one.I still have it in my parents house in my room.I am sure I would never forget about my first teddy bear and hope maybe my kids will like it one day.

My first Teddy Bear was bigger than me! I dragged him by his ear from place to place. I had to have help putting him in a chair. I think I was some age less than five. I think I was 2 feet tall and he was 2 1/2 or 3 feet. Mom sat him in a chair and I sat in his lap. He was brown and furry. He felt very good. He got pretty "beaten up". But he was a great friend. Take care

I still remember my first teddy bear, Teddy Ruxpin. It is an animatronic teddy bear produced in 1985 by Worlds of Wonder. It would move his mouth and eyes as he read stories via a build in audio tape deck at it back. http://teddybearslover.blogspot.com

Actually my first teddy bear was when I received it from my boyfriend. I was around 20 + at that time, a big girl already for sure. :) When I was small, my mother bought me baby dolls instead of teddy bears, I don't know why she didn't buy me teddy bears. Until now I still have the teddy bear put on my bed for decoration. Lol.

I remember my first teddy bear. I played with it until it started to rip. It got repaired. I lost it 12 years ago which was a shame. I couldn't find another one like it.

I barely remember my teddy bear. What I do remember most is that I lost it when I was about 5, and I found it after a rainstorm in the woods. I had to throw it out. My boys have had "Teds" since they were very young. My oldest got his on his first Christmas (he was 3 months old) from my sister. He still sleeps with it - he's 23 years old. My youngest got his the day he was born by his great-grandparents. He slept with his until he went into the Navy 3 years ago - we still have it. When their father's 2nd wife had their sister, we bought her her first "Ted" too. She's probably about 11 now and I don't know if she still has it.
