The whole world loves a teddy bear. But why is it that these soft cuddly toys have such a hold on our affections? Here is the complete story - from the turn-of-the-century beginnings to today when historic bears can sell for 6 figures. This book explores the beginnings of the great teddy bear boom; explains why it is that they are so important in our lives; discusses the innumerable variety of bears available; talks about famous bears in fiction, such as Winnie-the-Pooh; & gives some very sound advice on how to start building up a collection of these uniquely endearing little creatures. Beautiful colour photos throughout the book. Chapters include why teddy bears, teddy bear beginnings, boom bear years, teddy bear slump, the bear revived, media bears and assorted bear information as well as further reading and index.
