Large 13 inch yellow vintage Gund Snuffles. Anybody has seen this before or knows the tag number of it?

I received a message from a fellow Snuffles collector today about a large 13 inch, not the known 9 inch, yellow snuffles, similar to the large 13 inch green snuffles.

Unfortunately, all we know is that it has the same tush tag as the early #2169 White Snuffles and #2167 Pink Snuffles.  We do not know the reference number, anybody can help with it?

Take a look at the pictures and see the comparison to the 9 incher as well in one of the pictures.

Exclusive FAO Snuffles from Gund

I just saw this on Ebay.

This is apparently a current FAO Schwarz exclusive Snuffles from Gund.  Not really looking anything special other than the packaging.  Just a usual white snuffles.

Gund, if you read this, there are tons of collectors and Snuffles lovers out there hoping for something more creative than a white snuffles coming from you...

This is a 9 inch white Snuffles.  Sitting in an FAO special packaging.

Rare find on Ebay: "Snuffles makes a friend" in original box with storybook, white Gund Snuffles Bear

I just saw this ebay auction.  I did not know that the storybook came with a Snuffles in such a box, I thought it was sold separately.  This looks like a cool package for someone who is collecting Snuffles. 

Go to the Ebay auction.

A rare find on Ebay of a large 30 inch white snuffles with reference 6479, never seen before number.

I stumbled across this white Gund snuffles in large size.  30 inches.  Sold by a seller who is wellknown and from whom I have bought snuffles in the past. 

He researched the reference 6479 not being able to find any other snuffles with that number, and in my blog and lifetime I have been collecting snuffles, I have never even heard of this number.  Wondering what the story is behind the number 6479?  Anybody has seen one before?

Posting a few pictures from the ebay auction.  Good luck, Russell with your auction.  I would love to give him a good home, but timing isnt right for me.

Could this be a one of a kind snuffles?

News: Upcoming snuffles with pictures starting to sell mid February

Happy New Year to all Snuffles Lovers.

Gund finally presented some new Snuffles.  Three are snuffles which are quite large and laying, while the other three are small and sitting.

The laying Snuffles is 27 inches long.  There will be three different Colors: Grey, White and taupe.






The small ones are 10 inches tall.   There will be four different Colors: Grey, White and taupe as well as rose pink.







It has been a Long time without any new snuffles.  That is the reason why this blog has been quite silent.  Aside from that, I have been busy with other things.  And while I was hoping Gund would be interested in collectors in Europe, I came to realize they are very little interested in collectors outside of the US, Canada and UK.  It is a shame. 



My apologies for wrong spelling, I am writing from a German Laptop which is trying to correct my english especially when it Comes to capital letters where they do not belong.

Hello all

Yes indeed, i must apologize for this mass email, and also perhaps an email out of the blue, but as a race against time, and hoping that you will overlook my trespass of silence and not keeping in touch as much as I should, I am writing to ask for a few minutes of your time beginning this Friday for a few days to help with a good cause.... 

I hope you can take a few minutes to help me out on a Bearapy online campaign. It will take place between 7-16 April and I simply ask that you help me repost and share on your social media platforms (Facebook, WeChat, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn) during that period. If you have a few more seconds to spare, would love it if you could add your answer/comment to the Bear photos I post.
Of course, my NochNoch blog will be updated too - and with that, thank you for your continued readership and support and dropping me notes of encouragement!

I am doing this campaign in conjunction with the World Health Organisation's (WHO) World Health Day 2017, as the theme this year is "Depression: Let's Talk." You know that with my personal experience has motivated me into consulting for organizational change and corporate culture, specifically for executive mental well-being. This campaign is part of my efforts to continue raising awareness towards topics of depression, stress, and burnout in the community.

Here's how it works: Beginning on 7 April, for 10 days, I will post a different Bear photo across my social media platforms and ask people to respond instinctively in the comments on what emotions the bear might be feeling. This encourages us to face up to our vulnerabilities, defenses, and fears, which then allows us to talk about the emotions and seek help. Here is how you can help (please do not feel obliged to do all the below, but as much as possible as your time allows):

-       Repost the bear picture and blog post on 7 April 2017 on your social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram @your friends) to encourage your friends to join the campaign.

-       When reposting, you could copy & paste or write you own version of the short narrative of my picture—the most important thing is to include the tags (#Bearapy #LetsTalk #depression #RealEmotions #everythingsnotokay)

-       Repost/share as many bear pictures as you can during 7-16 April 2017.

-       Ask your friends and network to comment and/or share with their friend.

-       Add a comment about how you think the bear is feeling with each picture to stimulate discussion.

I will send a quick reminder nearer the time. Sincere thanks for your contribution in making this world more mentally healthy and helping me out!

The smaller 20 inch Millenium snuffles from 2000

Snuffles collectors are still active.  A beautiful 20 inch Millenium snuffles sold within just a few days on Ebay. 

The 20 incher is kind of my only snuffles I really would like to get.  Just timing is not right for me right now, so I did not get this one.

I want to share the pictures of the one sold with you.  He is flawless, in perfect condition.  What a cutie...

Enjoy the pictures which were shot in sunny Florida.

Courtesy of reader Nathalie from Belgium who loves snuffles like all of us. It is cool to see this famous American teddybear having fans all over the world. From the US to Europe to Asia, snuffles is loved everywhere. Enjoy her wonderful pictures.

Hot snuffles on Ebay

By accident I saw some very rare and in excellent condition older snuffles on Ebay today.

One is a 30 inch white snuffles (not Pottery Barn), which must be from the early 1990s I assume? 


The other is a later 1990s 20 inch tan snuffles (which happened to be my first snuffles I got in 1997).


Then there is a mohair snuffles, which tend to be quite rare. 
All three are quite rare, especially in this like new condition.  The snuffles are in Europe, namely France.  Good luck.

Have you ever seen a white 30 inch Pottery Barn snuffles?

Have you ever seen a Pottery Barn Snuffles this large?  He is a 30 inch huge white snuffles with the curly kind of fur of the Pottery Barn Snuffles series.  First time I see one, and this one is like new.

Pictures are courtesy of Karen and Vinnie.  Just like the pictures of the newest snuffles that just came out.  

He is a very cute and cuddly fellow, for sale on Ebay in case you are interested.   

Anyone knows what happened to Karthryn's snuffles website?  She had the most comprehensive snuffles website for years and now it is down?







I am not sure how rare this one is, but I have never seen one before.  Possibly this is a one of?

No matter how rare, this is a very cuddly fellow.  As I have to cut down on my own snuffles collection, my rooms are full so are my shelves, I hope he will find a great new home. 

News: new Salted Caramel Snuffles Bears arrived


Karen sent me the latest news and pictures of a new snuffles.
 
So the new Salted Caramel Snuffles Bears have arrived. They are very pretty with the quality I have been looking for, for a very long time now. They are similar to and the same size as the 10" 30th Birthday Caramel and Chocolate Snuffles.
 
Included are pictures with both of the 10" Birthday Snuffles. The color seems to be somewhere in between the Caramel and Chocolate Snuffles Bears with a lighter color near the body. The chest moon is beige instead of white and is a shorter length plush than the body. The plush on the rest of the body is longer than on the 10" 30th Birthday Snuffles. They are very soft and huggable. 
 
Karen said that she would wish Gund had made a larger size also like the 15" 30th Birthday Snuffles. 
 
These new snuffles are made exclusively for Cuddlebug Toy Factory and have a paper hang tag that says "made exclusively for cuddlebug toy factory". 
 
The tush tag says " MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR CUDDLEBUG TOY FACTORY BY GUND". The item number is 4057569. 
 
For those who are interested, they are only sold on Amazon.
