Merry Christmas, happy holidays...

A good year 2011 has passed, and an even better 2012 is lying ahead.  Happy holidays to all Snuffles lovers and to Snuffles, the cutest teddybear there is.
Pum Wum, Giorgio, and the two Millenium brothers are relaxing and enjoying the lazy "holy"days...  What better to do with such rainy weather than hanging out in the bed...

Giorgio is funny and loves to wear watches from my friends

30th anniversary snuffles in white

The 30th anniversary snuffles was officially not for sale.  It is limited, but I am not sure to how many?  It was a giveaway to Gund's top dealers and could only be acquired from them.  Some are for sale on Ebay.  My assumption is that about 200 or a maximum of 500 were released?  Maybe someone can clarify this who is in the know? 

He has very smooth and short fur, really nice, with a grey nose.  Very soft and cuddly.

This is Giorgio

Giorgio has been loved as you can see.  Loved a lot.  He travels with me everywhere I go.  By car, airplane, train, he is always in my backpack.  Giorgio loves Giorgio Armani perfume so he compliments his name.  He also has a buddy by the name of Marvie who lives in Texas, and he is sending his buddy his greetings. 

Once, Giorgio decided he wanted to take a real bath and he climbed into the washing machine.  He was hiding in a pillow cover which protected him reasonably, but not good enough so his nose got rubbed off a bit.  But he said, he had a fun time in the roller coaster... 

Giorgio is curious, a bit wild, but a great companion.  His mother is the big 25th anniversary snuffles.

My first and my last (not final) snuffles

Here is my first snuffles I bought, and the last one.  The first one is the 20 inch tan one, the last one is the largest snuffles that was ever sold to the public (there is a larger one, but it has never been sold and afaik there are only two of them).  I bought my first one in 1997 in Chicago at FAO.  He is still in excellent shape despite all my loving.  It shows the high level of quality that Gund delivers.  Snuffles is virtually indestructible.

The meaning of the tag on snuffles

According to Jan from, the tag on snuffles 'is not unique to each bear. Usually the number designates a size and when released. I have pink, blue and yellow all with the same number but they are all the same size.'

No crisis for snuffles: new record price for small brown mohair snuffles

Auction update:

The small brown mohair snuffles reached a new record price today at auction: 305 USD (The links to the auction will remain valid for 3 months only).  Looks like the recession is not hitting snuffles, that is for sure.  Several other snuffles reached new record prices as well.  Amazing.  They were all mint with tags.  I wanted the beige 16 inch snuffles so bad, but the price it reached was quite outrageous, good for the seller, it reached over 180 USD.
