Timeless Friends
STUFFED TOYS

Teddy bears and other plush toys have been loved by children for generations. Soft, huggable and easy to carry, they often become a child's favourite companion. Today's versions offer both traditional and innovative interpretations.

 

Musical teddies...

Cuddle your teddy bear and listen to the radio at the same time. Or learn to play a tune by pressing on its numbered toes. The radio and the music-producing elements in the Radio Teddy and Piano Teddy are completely enclosed in the bears's bodies, with the switches and control knobs located in their feet. Both are made by Well Creation Ltd.

 

Family affair...

Baby rabbits and mice make a winning addition to the stuffed animal collections from Goldspread Industrial Ltd. The company makes more than 100 kinds of stuffed animals and exports them to Europe and the Middle East.

 

Cute 'n cuddly...

Soft, lightweight stuffed animals in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours from New Generation Industries (KT) Co Ltd have appealingly simple faces and expressions. Some sport cheerful checked cloth bow ties and ears.
