I hope you can help me I am trying to find information on the Disney Teddy Show. Just woundering if there is a web site I can look at. The other question I have is to do with the Toby Awards, I am just woundering if you have to be selling many bears to enter the contest. Thank you for looking.
There's no "minimum" number of bears you need to have sold to enter the TOBY's, I don't think. However, there IS a "maximum" number of bears you're "allowed" to make per year if you want to enter the ARTIST, vs. the MANUFACTURER, categories. I'm sure this limit is set to ensure that all artist entries are made by a single craftsperson; if one produces, like, 1000 bears per year, that's likely the work of an assembly line of some kind, and would make those bears "manufactured." And so on.
