NEW! Giant Koalas and Elephants at Giant Teddy

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

They're New, they're GIANT and they're soooo Adorable! Meet our Elephant Herd and our Koala Family, the latest members of the  huge, cuddly-soft stuffed animals on GiantTeddy.com

We make the biggest stuffed animals you've seen, without sacrificing The Cuddle Factor - they're huge, but still SO soft, cuddly, huggable and easy to move around. 

Meet the Elephant Herd at GiantTeddy.com

Meet the Koala Family at GiantTeddy.com

The Elephants:
Ellie is 24in (2ft)
Lucy is 30in (2.5ft)
Elvis is 36in (3ft)
Stampy is 48in (4ft)

The Koalas:
Quincy is 20in
Cooper is 34in
Quigley is 45in

Like ALL our huge stuffed animal friends, our Elephants and Koalas are made in the USA with top quality materials including the softest fur, and lightweight, non-clumping stuffing to keep them looking great...and of course they all pass our Huggability Testing because we won't sell any furry friends who aren't the cuddliest stuffed animals on earth. 

These are rare and hard to find in the sizes we make - surprise someone you love with an amazing gift, or make the gift for YOU (we think you deserve one, too!)

November's Beaver Supermoon is a BIG deal: Sunny Cuddles Explains It All

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Sunny Cuddles Explains It All: Supermoons

Hi, I'm Sunny Cuddles from Giant Teddy. It's time for a super Supermoon!

Supermoons occur when they are closer to earth than normal, making them look bigger and brighter, or 'super' in size.

And it seems like supermoons are everywhere these days.

We had one in October. We'll have another one in December.

But the November 2016 Supermoon is kind of a big deal. Literally. 

What Makes This One Special?

This Supermoon will be closer to earth than any supermoon has been for almost 70 years. That's like... a whole human lifetime.

And it won't be this close again for another 20 years. So don't miss this one.

When can I see this Super Supermoon in the sky?

Officially, it will be 'super-est' on Monday November 14th.

For teddy bears & your human friends just looking at it in the night sky, it will look equally big on November 13th and 15th.

Why is it called a Beaver Moon?

This one is called a Beaver Moon, because the full moon at this time of year marked when the Algonquin Native American tribes and American colonists set beaver traps before the water froze. Beaver pelts were valuable to trade, and were warm winter furs.

*shudder* I'm glad they weren't setting Teddy Bear traps...

It's kind of complicated to observe a supermoon though. 

Are you ready for instructions?

You have to be outside or by a window. And you have to look up at the moon.

I know. You should probably practice. And do NOT let pie distract you.

Ohhhh... pie. It looks like a supermoon.

Be sure to watch for my next, "Sunny Cuddles Explains It All" blog. You can visit me and all my big teddy bear friends on GiantTeddy.com

Hugs are Medical Magic: Stress Awareness Day Advice from Dr. Giant Teddy Bear

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

It's National Stress Awareness Day... and hugs are the medical magic answer.

Hi, I'm Sunny Cuddles from Giant Teddy... I'm not a real doctor, but I pretend to be one on this blog.  

And sometimes when I write myself prescriptions for candy. Shhh. 

Sunny Cuddles from GiantTeddy.com - he's not a real doctor but he IS a Hug Expert!

Today is Stress Awareness Day, but I bet you are 'aware' of it on more days than you'd like.

I've got the best Prescription for Stress... and it's SO easy.


Giant Teddy Bear Hug Therapy on National Stress Awareness Day

Did you know that hugs can instantly help your mental and physical well being?

It's true.

Hugs Can:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Reduce your Blood Pressure
  • Boost your Immune System
  • Improve your Mood
  • Raise Self Esteem Levels
  • Increase Relaxation/Lower Anxiety
  • Make you Happy
  • Speed Healing 
  • Improve your Memory
Why are hugs so medically magical? 

Hugging someone increases serotonin and natural oxytocin levels in your body, and they are both powerful players in making you happy and healthy. 

Hugging someone you love creates powerful medical magic! Bear Hugs for all.

The most powerful hugs come from someone you love or care deeply about, but hugs from anyone who is kind and genuine will boost your mood and your day. 

So make hugs part of every day, and leave stress behind in the dirt. And here are a lot of really big {{{BEAR HUGS}}} just to get you started. 

You can meet Sunny Cuddles and all his big bear friends on GiantTeddy.com

Halloween Teddy Bears Share Spooky Trivia

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Hi! I'm Sunny Cuddles, a big cuddly bear from Giant Teddy. My bear friends and I think Halloween is lots of fun, so we have some special personalized shirts we wear and even some costumes. You can meet all the Halloween Teddy Bears on our website.

If you love Halloween, here is some fun trivia for you - and you may even know a lot of these facts already!

Did you know...

  • Halloween can be traced back to the Celtic people of Ireland and northern France.

  • Before pumpkin Jack-o-Lanterns, people carved turnips and potatoes & used candles inside to ward off evil spirits on Halloween.

  • Ancient Celts thought evil spirits wandered the earth on Halloween night intent on harming humans (luckily not teddy bears), so they began wearing masks and costumes to confuse the spirits walking among them. 

  • Halloween is second only to Christmas in popularity and retail holiday sales. 

  • Halloween candy sales average over 2 BILLION dollars in the US every year, with chocolate topping the list of favorite candy. It's possible my bear friends and I contribute to those sales...
  • Halloween colors are usually orange and black - orange for the harvest and black for darkness and death. Hold me, now I've scared myself.

  • Halloween is also called All Hallow's Eve, because it is the night before All Hallow's Day, or All Saint's Day on November 1. All Soul's Day is November 2. November 1 is also Samhain, the day ancient Celts declared the start of winter. There's a lot of history to remember with this since Halloween has been celebrated in one form or another for over 2000 years.

But the MOST important thing to know is this: if your teddy bear asks you for candy, you have to share. It's Teddy Bear law. You wouldn't want to break that, would you?

Happy Halloween from all the bears and humans at GiantTeddy.com
