In first place of the top 10 teddy bears for 2017 and into 2017 is a longer-term favorite – Gund Philbin.
Such an under-stuffed cutie in chocolate or beige. This teddy bear is a classic, with wide, bright eyes, huge feet, a furry body, and an adorable, curious expression. He is huggable, squishy, and plush. Lovin’ his chocolatey-brown nose and ears.
I’ve been to Build a Bear once or twice, and the building process is what makes it so much fun, especially the making a wish on the heart. This at-home workshop comes with two adorable, cuddly bears, that need to be stuffed, dressed, cuddled, and named. Includes two adoption certificates.
Dressed like a snuggly, high-flyin’ Superman, Snuffles is a plush cutie with a superhero cape and friendly, sweet smile. This teddy bear is a bedtime buddy and anytime companion. Lovin’ the comic book theme, so-cute smile, and overall Superman outfit.
Also making its own place among the 2017 top teddy bears for kids is Gund Toothpick.
This skinny, oh-so cute teddy bear is an instant classic and sweet bedtime snuggler. He is quirky and adorable with an over-sized, chocolate-brown nose, and shiny, bright eyes. I love his stick-out ears and long arms!
One from Aurora makes it to the “best of” teddy bears list this year with Ashford.
Soft and sweet, the Ashford Teddy is a first that many party-goers gift to newborns and up. The fur is super-soft, and there is a golden ribbon, tied in a bow around the teddy’s neck. Love his fuzzy-wuzzy, ultra-adorable ears.
Another first teddy that would be great for babies and toddlers. This bear is a traditional cutie in brown, blue, white, or pink. This plush animal comes with silky pads on ears and feet, plus a soft, satin ribbon in a bow around its neck. Fuzzy, sweet, and super cuddly.
Bedtime Bear is my favorite Care Bear because sleep is one of my favorite pastimes. Ha, ha. This cutie bear has a glowing tummy that projects stars on the ceiling and walls in 6 beautiful, soothing colors. Includes a lullaby mode that shuts off after 15-20 minutes, optimum
Yet another from this wonderful company, Gund Peek-A-Boo makes it to the 8th spot among the best teddy bears for-2017.
Another treasured classic from Gund. This sweet teddy bear is unique and interactive, reciting six adorable phrases, like “I love you.” Plus, he plays a game of peek-a-boo with an attached, satin-ringed blanket. I’m lovin’ his big, brown, expressive eyes.
What is early development? For babies, it’s a toy that teaches them to not only use their imagination, but improve upon their senses with stimulation. For example, this teddy is plush with satin ears and paws, and a zippered outfit. Texture, color, and design make a big difference in development.
The final item on the list of the top ten teddy bears this year is Gund Slumbers.
One more from Gund, and my absolute favorite. This overstuffed teddy bear is named Slumbers. And he is the perfect, most cherished bedtime buddy I can think of. His plush, round tummy is huggable and adorable. Plus, he has a sweet, loving expression, and a fuzzy, shaggy body. Must have!
