Product Description

Teddy Bears Postcard Book - Johnny Gruelle, Quacky Doodle, Danny Daddles

The Teddy Bear has come to stay, so perfectly is his grizzled exterior adapted to fitting in to the many chubby arms which extend to him. He is not only bear-like enough to lift him above juvenile criticism but he is possessed of those semi human attributes which fit him eminently for youthful companionship. He is every inch a bear and yet he certainly embodies exactly the doll qualities which are demanded by the children of today. He is well-made and set up. His head really turns round and his legs are nicely adjustable. He has moreover that precious gift of true adaptability; he can be made to crawl, climb, stand or sit and in each pose he is not only delightfully himself but he also suggests to the imaginative owner whatever special being his fancy would have his teddy personify.
Caroline Tickner, 1907

The teddy bear is, for many of us, the quintessential childhood toy. He (or she) sits in wagons, attends tea parties, loves to listen to stories, rides on the backs of tricycles, stands guard, and, best of all, loves to tuck into bed with their little masters and mistresses. They are enough like we humans to be loved as we love our family and friends, and yet different enough to be funny and lovable. Needless to say, they are favorite characters in children's picture books. We offer thirty of our favorite teddy bear illustrations. Among the included illustrators are:
