- WHAT IS "Dear Teddy"
"Dear Teddy" is a blog by, for, and about old stuffed animals and other beloved childhood toys who have a story to tell.
- WHY "DEAR TEDDY"?
"Dear Teddy" was inspired by
the ramblings of some old git this post by this blogger...which triggered some warm 'n fuzzy teddy bear memories for these two bloggers...one thing led to another, and well, as everyone knows...put 2 or more bloggers together for any length of time and it won't be long before another blog is born!
- WHO WRITES THE STUFF FOR "Dear Teddy"?
But most of the toy-stories are written by
- HOW DO I GET MY STORY PUBLISHED ON "Dear Teddy"
EASY! Just email your story (with "Dear Teddy" in the subject line) to one of our Teditors: Grumpy Ted, or Snowy Bear, or Busy Bear!
We'll need your (toy's) name, date of birth (or death), a photograph, and your story. Some suggested details to include are: How old are you? What adventures have you had? Have you ever been lost? Did you ever belong to somebody else? Are you alive or dead? Are bits of you missing, repaired, stained!? Do you feel loved or neglected?
And please include your blog's URL if you'd like us to link back to you.
Warning ..... if your story is much longer than 400 words, you might be seriously edited.
- I NO LONGER HAVE MY OLD TOY...NOT EVEN A PICTURE! - CAN I STILL SUBMIT MY STORY?
YES!!! In fact, we encourage it! (It's the memories that count) Be creative - include a drawing, or a picture of a similar toy...or perhaps you might see a toy that reminds you of your old friend on our Adopt A Toy page!
- I HAD A DEPRIVED CHILDHOOD & NEVER HAD A SPECIAL TOY - CAN YOU HELP ME?!
YES!!! It's never too late to create memories! Perhaps you might see a toy that tugs on your heart-strings on our Adopt A Toy page!
- WHO SKETCHED THE ADORABLE TEDDY BEAR IN YOUR BLOG'S HEADER?
That would be our very own Grumpy Ted...who is just FULL of surprises!
Still got questions?...drop us an email!
