Teddy Bears Called Cheeky

Since the birth of the teddy bear in 1902, his looks has changed, sometimes quite radically too, of course it depends on the company producing the teddy bear as, since he was born, every soft toy company has it’s own idea of how the teddy bear should look.  Even the teddy bears inventors, Steiff, have changed the look of the teddy bear over the years.

The wonderful English Teddy Bear Company called Merrythought, has probably produced some of the most diverse and at the same time loveable teddy bears we know of.  These teddy bears are cute, cuddly, infact they are seriously adorable, they are of course the very famous and wonderful ‘Cheeky’ Bears.

Cheeky Bear first made his appearance in 1956 at a trade fair.  A customer picked him up and said “what a cheeky little bear” – the rest, as they say, is history because from then on his name stuck, he has been called Cheeky ever since!

The Cheeky Bear was designed by Jean Barber.  The original bears were made from gold plush and shaggy gold mohair or art silk, they were kapok stuffed and had bells in both ears.  Since his birth the Cheeky Bear has been made in a vast array of fabics and in some magnificant colours.  Cheeky Bears are loved as much today (probably more so) than when they were first introduced to teddy bear lovers back in the 1950’s.

Cheeky Bears are now collected the whole world over and they are extremely desirable to many lovers of teddy bears.  I would say, however, that these teddy bears often fetch very high prices when they are sold at auction or at specialist teddy bear fairs, so it always pays to bring a Cheeky Bear home with you, especially if the Cheeky Bear you have chosen is from a very low edition size or if he is of an unusual colour, material or better still a combination of all these traits.  If you are looking to buy a teddy bear as a gift for a very special person, I can think of no better teddy bear than a Cheeky Bear.

Cheeky Bears are just so full of character that they do make really excellent mascots and as they come in so many sizes, colours, etc. it makes choice appealing.  The late singer Dusty Springfield owned a gorgeous little Cheeky Bear who she called Mr Einstein.

I love Cheeky Bears, there is one really special low edition bear that really is wonderful, it is a ‘girl’ Cheeky who I call Lavendar (because she is the colour of Lavendar and has beautiful curly mohair), she is a beautiful and desirable lady absolutely brimming full of life.
