Teddy bears are classic and timeless. They have heart and are always there when you need them. I collected teddy bears when I was younger and as I got older I became a knowledgeable collector. My reading and research led me to fall in love with GUND.
GUND is one of the original teddy bear manufacturers. This company has been around for 111 years. Their longevity is due to the high quality of their lovable, huggable bears. Kids fall in love with them and adults collect them.
Their slogan says it all, really. You “gotta getta GUND!”
2010 is Snuffles’ 30th birthday! Yes, back in 1980 GUND introduced Snuffles to the world. His unique shape was inspired by a crescent moon and he appears to gaze up into the eyes of whoever is hugging him. Since then GUND has become GUND’s most successful and well-known bear.
To celebrate GUND released special edition GUND teddy bears. Most of them are available for purchase – like the 15″ Chocolate 30th birthday Snuffles from Amazon.com for $42.64.
They also released a one-of-a-kind Suffles valued at $10,000! Let me tell you about this amazing bear! He is 10 inches tall and dripping in diamonds. He is wearing an astonishing birthday diamond necklace of 10 carats on a white gold chain. This Snuffles is made from white alpaca fur and has a genuine leather nose. Even the eyes are amazing and rare – made from 100% Tahitian pearls. The material value alone is at $10,000 – how much would you pay for this one of a kind teddy bear?
You can purchase the 15″ Chocolate 30th Anniversary Snuffles from Amazon.com – among other retailers!
One lucky MamaDweeb reader will win 2 Snuffles – a 15” Chocolate & 15” Caramel 30th Birthday Editions – total ARV $100!!
