dclo1.gif (6455 bytes)A few weeks ago, at the Webspresso Lounge, we were discussing Bear Motifs. I have always enjoyed the Bell Hop motif, and Lizzie mentioned how she was intruiged by the Clown motif.
I was recently looking through a great book I own, called the Teddy Bear Encyclopedia, by Pauline Cockrill. I decided to share some of the info from the book with you. This book is a classic, and I highly recommend it! I'll add more as we go.
If you have a request, or additional information, please contact me. Sally@webspresso.com

Here are just a few examples of how profiles vary with different bear designs.
