We all love the bear! It's so cute and I love the bag that the bear comes in and all the personalization details. The fabric material is also very nice and cozy.

Made with love and attention to detail, this soft, cuddly teddy bear commemorates the birth of our daughter. This is a memento that we will cherish forever.

I love my Buddie Bear. As an older adult, this really helps me to relax before bed time. I have a large in the bubble pattern.

I love my bag tag! It hangs from my purse and people comment on how cute it is and ask where I got it. Thanks Cuddle for Keeps.
