Me to You bear facts
Did you know that Tatty Teddy first appeared on greeting cards in 1995? It was produced as a plush toy for the first time in 2000. Based on the original greeting card design, it featured short grey fur, small black eyes and a blue nose with a white reflective spot on the left hand side.
A very similar version of the bear with finer fur, was launched in 2003 and in 2009, the Me to You 3rd generation plush toy was finally launched in stores. Tatty Teddy now features longer fur in different shades of grey. A new blue plastic nose replaces the fabric nose on previous generations. As the new nose has reflective features, the reflective spot has also been removed.
Tatty Teddy’s story
How did Tatty Teddy come to be ‘The grey bear with the blue nose’?
Thrown out with the rest of the rubbish, a little brown teddy bear was all alone. As the snow started to fall his nose turned blue and his fur turned grey.
In the spring he was rescued by a little girl, who took him home to be mended by Grandma. Tatty Teddy had finally found a loving home.
