Anyone remember the Polo teddy bear?
I have only the vaguest memory of these things, but I do remember that they were at one time indeed a "thing". Teddy was everywhere, on t-shirts, sweaters, neck ties, pillows, towels, sheets, and of course, in person. Recently, I found a tie with a pattern of Polo teddies and American flags. Mrs. G was shocked that I bought it. I explained that it was collectible and I'd have it sold in no time. She scoffed, but the tie was gone within hours.
Two days later, we were in a thrift shop together when I found this bear. This time she was all for my purchase. But my little two year old girl picked him up, hugged him close, looked right at me and said "Love him". Guess we won't be selling that one...at least not right away.
You gotta admit, he is kinda cute.
