Teddy Bears Wanting Homes

A few weeks ago, these wonderful bears arrived- all the way from China.. Now they are not just ordinary old teddy bears.... no sir-ree..... they are quite unique.
Made from SoyBeans (yup, you read that right!) these incredibly soft cute bears, have no petroleum products used in making them, no off-gassing, no toxic wastes created..

I couldn't wait to get some, and to add them to our website. Bears for kids, that are made from this renewable resource (soy), are non-toxic and earth friendly is right up our alley!

Now, the secret is out.. both my Mom and I love Teddy Bears (although I admit she has a much larger collection than I do!) We gave her a tofu-bear for Christmas, and dressed her up in a cute little pink tutu (the clothing for teddy bears at the Bear Mill fits these bears)

Now that things are settling down again, I'll get back to my knitting - I joined a sock exchange group called Bloomin'Feet. I will be knitting a pair of socks for my Secret Sock Pal - Fun!
what to knit, what to knit...what yarn to use?? ahhhh, now that's my kind of dilemma.

Teyani the bears are beautiful. My children gave me a chocolate colored bear when they were in grade school for Xmas named Brownie. I still have him, love him. He might have to get a cutie for company! grin

They are made of soy?! That's about the coolest thing I've ever heard. Is there anything they can't do with that bean?
