Synopsis

This treasury contains all you ever wanted to know about amusing bear love, those charming toy bears, and some of the most famous bear makers over the years. Today, toy bears continue to enchant people of all ages as they have since the beginning of this century. The book celebrates over 400 of the most appealing toy bears and their makers the world over (including manufacturers Steiff, Bing, Schuco, Hermann, Gabrielle, Ideal, Knickerbocker, Farnell, Chad Valley...and talented individual makers found everywhere). Author Dee Hockenberry points you to the leading public collections in England, Europe, and the United States and guides you to find other enthusiasts at bear shows, conventions, and private shops. She defines and explains their components and terminology and comments on their values, including price ranges (some quite hefty!) as part of her detailed captions.

Dee Hockenberry's enthusiasm for toy bears is quite infectious, probably because she has studied, traveled, thought hard and debated with the experts to learn all this about bears, then came home, made her own bears for shops to sell, and wrote it all down for us.
