Linda Mullins identification book is a must for the teddy bear collector. I have followed Mullins' teddy bear shows in So. California for almost 20 years and this book captures the knowledge and experience of Mullins. This book offers comprehensive information that not only clearly identifies past collectible teddy bears but provides bear "seekers" valuable information on the newer bears the collector should be watching. Thanks Linda Mullins for such a fine book!

There is a wealth of information for the teddy bear collector in this book. The book has many color photographs so wonderful some would be suitable for framing. Though published in the 1980's, it is still relevant to today's collector of teddy bears.
