Sepia Saturday


This week’s prompt made me hunt for photos of teddy bears, a favorite toy for generations.

  1. A teddy bear factory? What a great job to assemble a toy destined to become some child’s beloved friend!


  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog…I am thrilled to see the old photo of the assembly of teddy bears factory style. It’s hard for me to think of all those individual pieces…to make such a lovable doll.


  3. These are great! I love the “making of the bears” photos showing crochet in one and an assembly line in another — resulting in happy endings for so many children, as depicted in the first two photos. Great selection of photos for this prompt!


  4. I don’t know if it still exists, but there used to be a company called “Create a Bear” (I think that was the name of it?) – where kids could create their own teddy bears or other stuffed animals for an standard price. My husband – through a company somewhere back east – once had two custom teddy bears made for me – one for Valentine’s Day, and one for Mother’s Day. The male bear wears a white t-shirt with coverall jeans and holds a bouquet of red roses. The female bear wears a cute dress with a bow on her head, gold-rimmed glasses, and holds a storybook. I love them! (And him for thinking of them because he knows I love teddy bears!!) :)))
