My name is Thomas. I have always loved stuffed animals. I have many at home. They are all new cheap ones made in China. I want to collect some bears that are special. I have a bear that is special to me. I got him at the Barbra Streisand Concert. Very cute. I will post a picture so you can all see him. I found a bear at an Antique mall in New Buffalo, IL. last weekend. I posted a picture in the collectible section. Take a look. Becky was nice enough to tell me it was a homemade bear. He's really cute. He also makes a cute sound. I look forward to meeting other Bear folks on this great website.
Hey Thomas, welcome Good to see you here. Im pretty new here myself but found out already this is an awesome place with very friendly and helpful people. It's also good to see a few more male teddy lovers show up And wether your bears are expensive or cheap doesnt matter one bit. Looking forward to see your bears later on if you wanna share. I still need to make some pics of a few I have. Again, welcome
This is my Barbra Bear. I got her when I went to the Concert Barbra Streisand gave here in Chicago. I love her Tee Shirt. The 2 bunnies I bought myself at Easter. My Mom used to give me a Bunny every year until she passed away 2 years ago. Now on Easter I buy one for myself. In memory of her, and to keep up the tradition. :love:
Is this the right place to be showing these pictures? Is there another place in the index I'm suppose to post these?
Hi Thomas and welcome to TT! :rose:
I think it was a wonderful thought of your mom to give you a bunny every year and I am glad you are continuing the tradition in honour of your mom.
It's great to have teddy bears to remind you of special occasions (like the Barbara Streisand concert). Whenever I travel (not as much as I used to) I always bring back a bear from the place I visited. This is my "Shakesbear" from a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon.
It's nice to hear from another (male) teddy bear lover.
