Well it shouldn`t all be about bears- or should it?
Anyway, yesterday I discovered these magnificent creatures:
Ducks in wellies.
I wouldn`t let them in to the bears, but I wonder if I could find another
spot somewhere around the house.....

The last of my Steiff-shopping, Sanne, arrived today. She is a Steiff Replica 1928 music bear made in 1992.
And really sweet - even though she stick up her sweet nose!
3 newer and a vintage Steiff - that empties any mans pockets, so it will take a while before new bears will arrive.

A week ago Mickey arrived from Netherlands. He is a rather shy teddy but if you look at the other pics of this character you will see it only took him a couple of days before he felt at home.
The family we adopted him from called him by his name - and there`s no reason to change such a lovely name, na Mickey?
He is an ordinary 5-way-jointed Schuco (not a yes/no) and a real charmer. Even after all these years he can still growl and not a bit has been under the surgeons knife.

I have often wondered why there are so few old teddies for sale in Denmark (where I live).
Ok, I am not the most notorious flee- or garagesales-person, but now and then I have paid those a visit and to this day I haven`t seen an old and by far not an antique teddy anywhere. If one looks at the Danish on-line auctions you will be very lucky to find just a single one within half a year. Ok, maybe a couple if you look at the well established antique augtions - but still just a few.
Where are they? Were they never bought? Did Danish kids never own a teddy bear? Or were they just allowed to play with them day and night untill nothing was left but a sad chewed ear?
Even new quality-collectors teddies are hard to buy - even from new. You may find a couple to choose from if you visit Illum or Magasin but else? The other day I looked in Hamley's shop at Tivoli just to recognize their Steiff stock consisted of soft toys only.
But I keep looking......
