I can just see in now..everybody sitting at work with their Teddy Bears or walking down the street carrying their Teddies. You just never know what they will come up with for a National Day. I have a 4' Teddy that sits on the bed in my spare room. Destinee likes to snuggle up with it when she comes over for a sleepover. The cats also like it. I don't remember having a special Teddy Bear growing up but I know lots of people did. My son has this stuffed Dinosaur that he called "No". He use to carry that dinosaur everywhere he went. I still have it. It is in a box somewhere. Someday I will dig it out and give it to his boys. I think they would like it. Did you or your children have a special teddy bear (toy) growing up?

@Happy2BeMe I had a bear but I think I gave it away. I think it is nice to have a National Teddy bear day. I am glad your cats like your teddy bear. No, I had a blanket I loved to carry around but not a teddy bear. I have my special doll called Yisraela and my special lion I won called Alfred.

I had a stuffed animal full size Scottish terrier that my uncle gave me. He kept the live dog. . But dolls were my forte. I received them as gifts from the world travels of relatives and my wonderful grandmother. One son had a stuffed dog named Doggie. and the other had a bunny blankie, named Bunny. They dragged them around wherever we went - California, Maine, Florida.... and slept with them until they started kindergarten. Now their pets are their precious animals. In our older son’s case, it’s his two children and two dogs. I bought a lamb fur teddy bear puppet on vacation in Kennebunk, Maine, and have it stored away from Doodles. Only the grandkids can play with it.

When I was young until my boyfriend then husband started sleeping in my bed I slept with a panda every night. Years later going through my husband's family photos for our wedding I found a photo of my husband with that same panda bear. Maybe I will dig through our photos and see if I still have both to post on Facebook.

I bet your son's boys would like "No," which is a very unique name for a Teddy Bear. I also did not have a Teddy Bear. My sister had a sock monkey she carried with her everywhere.

That is cute. I think "No" was because he couldn't say di"no"saur. He only got the no part.

I had a donkey - or at least, that's what I called it, though I think it was meant to be a racehorse because when it first arrived it had a green and pink plush jockey sewn onto its back. The Rider was very quickly removed and was the most hated and despised toy in the toybox. The donkey - whose name was simply "Donkey" - was my favourite stuffed toy and it survived (much patched and restuffed) until only a few years ago, when it had been so much eaten by moths and had become so limp that it was no longer worth mending. I don't remember what my children's favourite toys were. I'm not sure that any of them were very much into soft toys, though they had their teddies and polar bears and so on.

Our son had a Gund teddy bear, named Honey Bear that he would carry around, until he was about 2. Then he got a pound puppy, Spotty, who he carried for a lot of years. When he got homesick while away at university, he asked me to send him Spotty, which I did. He still has him in his home, a keepsake from his younger days. I never had teddy bears, I had a lot of dolls. I do have a teddy bear that my husband bought me a couple of years ago, Walter, he sits on our bed.
