Several years ago, Disney came out with the Mickey Mouse Disney Bear and they kept producing them in several colors. I ended up buying one for everyone in our family and in all different colors.

The Mickey Disney Bear I got was the grey one, I gave white bears to my mother and sister. My nieces got blue and pink and my father, other sister and husband got black. I then found a tan one and gave it to our nephew after he was born. This was 7 years ago. We all still have our bears. I found the white bears at a Disney Liquidation Sale and got each of them for only $7 a piece!

There is a story that goes along with each bear and they are all the same.

The story tells about how Mickey was waiting on his friends to meet him by the castle and had his teddy with him. He made a wish that he could enjoy the park with someone and then Tinkerbell sprinkled the bear with her Pixie Dust and he came to life. Because of his enthusiasm over his new live friend, when he hugged his bear, the traditional Mickey Mouse outline then appeared on the bear's face. - (I have paraphrased this story as if I post the actual story, I don't want to be flagged for copying what should be written here.)

This Disney Bear also has Mickey's familiar face outline on its paws and again on its left rear cheek.

The fabric of these bears is the softest material I have ever had on a stuffed animal. That is one of the features that made these bears in so much demand. Since removing them from the parks in the United States, Disney moved him to Disneyland in Tokyo, where he is now named, "Duffy" and has become a huge character figure in the park. So much that he is a live character that visitors can take pictures with.

His eyes and nose are a hard plastic and his nose is covered in a black felt. These are not for babies but for toddlers on up to any age. I do have to keep him away from our dachshund because he thinks all stuffed animals are meant for him.

I am glad that "Duffy" is alive and well in Tokyo but I do miss him here in the USA. But at least I have our bears to always hug on and enjoy.
