Whimsical World Of Boyd's Bears: 25 Years And Counting

Boyds' Silver Anniversary Album celebrates the spirit of this company's playful plush creatures. The lively test tells the "o-fishull" story of Boyds' growth over the past 25 years from a small mom-and-pop venture to the vibrant public corporation it is today, and takes readers on a tour through Boyds Bear Country, "the world's most humongous teddy bear store." The heart of the book is a photographic gallery featuring hundreds of Boyds' beloved bears, hares and other critters in warm and whimsical settings and endearing portraits. Dedicated to "People who aren't afraid to stand up in a crowd and say, 'I'm a Bear Lover and Proud of it!" and presented in Boyds' characteristic tongue-in-cheek style, this Silver Anniversary Album will warm the hearts of readers everywhere.

Do you remember when Boyds Bears had that wonderful store in Gettysburg? They had the "Head Bean" who must have had an infectious influence on the people who worked there. They came out with wonderful bears, hares and so much more. On one trip to Gettysburg I spent more days in the world of Boyds Bears than I did in the history of Gettysburg.This book shows the pictures from the Boyds world I remembered before everything was turned corporate and bought out by a major company. I am a Boyds collector and this book is one of my favorites -- kinda like looking back at the good old days of Norman Rockwell for Teddy Bears.

This book just puts a smile on my face everytime I open it. The bears are just wonderful and my grandkids just love sitting and looking at them. I also enjoyed reading about the history of Boyd's Bears and the founders, as a collector there were many things I didn't know. Great buy, very entertaining!

The person I bought this for loves it. Good for people who love teddy bears, especially those made by Boyd.
