Happy Halloween from Giant Teddy: Teddy Bear Scare

Sunny Cuddles: Halloween Teddy Bear Prankster

Halloween is a fun time at Giant Teddy. All the big teddy bears dress up in silly costumes and have fun, and trick or treat all over the office before heading to the big Halloween party. Of course, there is still important teddy bear work that must be done and the bears balance fun with responsibility. Well, everyone but Sunny Cuddles.

Sunny spent his morning trying on different costumes and leaping out of the supply closet as people and bears roamed by. He started out yelling, “Boo!” but when BooBoo Shags kept saying, “Yes? What do you want?” Sunny switched to yelling “Gotcha!”

By lunchtime, most of the other big bears were fed up with his antics. Cozy Cuddles was limping after he slipped on the banana peel he dropped when Sunny burst out of the supply closet wearing a mask. Lulu Shags had spilled her smoothie all over her costume and was trying to clean it up.

He put a whoopee cushion on the office assistant’s chair. He put super glue on the toilet seat – and Almond Shags had to go to Bear First Aid to repair the bald spots after he was the victim of that caper. Lady Cuddles was screaming about a huge spider in her chair that turned out to be rubber.

It seemed that every human and bear at Giant Teddy had been the target of one of Sunny’s Halloween pranks. And while they all normally loved Sunny and his fun-loving ways, he had just gone too far.  He kept reminding them all he was the best prankster and never got scared.

When Sunny was found in a pile of trick-or-treat candy wrappers taking a nap under the conference table instead of finishing his Teddy Bear Report due by the end of the day, they decided to teach him a lesson. They let him sleep, and he woke up grumpy just as everyone was leaving for the party. Sunny would have to stay late to finish. “Why didn’t anyone wake me up?” he asked. But all the other teddy bears just ignored him and left.

Sunny was at his desk feeling sorry for himself and trying to finish his reports so he could get to the party when he heard the noise. An odd noise. Some might say a scary noise. He looked around. “Hello?” he called.

Nobody answered. But somewhere far down a hall, a door creaked. Sunny got a little  nervous. It was Halloween after all. What if there was a deranged bear monster on the loose? He looked down the hall and saw a strange flicker. And then he heard a creepy kind of wail, and a cackling laugh. A door slammed and he heard scuttling feet.

“Who’s there? Who is it?” Sunny was getting scared. He turned and suddenly a dark cloaked figure with a flickering Jack-o-lantern head was in front of him, laughing maniacally. Sunny screeched and started running down the hall. Just as he passed the supply closet, it burst open and a bunch of vampires jumped out. Sunny started screaming but realized he heard laughter. “Gotcha!” yelled a lot of bears at once.

Sunny Cuddles had his paw to his chest. Someone flipped on the office lights. There stood all his bear friends, laughing. Sunny smiled sheepishly. “Wow. I guess I had that coming, huh?” His friends all nodded. Cozy put his arm around Sunny and said, “But we forgive you. Forget the report. Ray said you can turn it in tomorrow. Come to the party – it isn’t the same without Sunny Cuddles there!”

Sunny grabbed his costume and headed to the Halloween party with all the big teddy bears and people at Giant Teddy. And he won first place in the costume contest!  That night he updated his Facebook page with a photo of him in his awesome costume.

Giant Teddy Bear Thanksgiving Gifts

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Thankful Heart Teddy Bears make a perfect gift.

Fall is a wonderful time of year, and we have a tradition of setting aside time around Thanksgiving to be thankful, for the people in our lives and the things we are blessed with that make us happy and grateful.

But it is one time of year when gift ideas are more scarce. You can send flowers for the Thanksgiving Day table, but they often get lost behind the turkey and the pumpkin pie.

Gifts at Thanksgiving should come from your heart - and that's why this year, Giant Teddy has created our Thankful Heart Teddy Bears!

38 inch Sunny Cuddles Mocha Brown Thanksgiving Teddy Bear

These adorable big bears are holding a large orange plush heart that says "Thankful" on it. What better way to share the love this Thanksgiving than with a Giant Teddy Thanksgiving Bear?

Shaggy Cuddles is a 26 inch amber brown teddy bear with soft cuddly fur and a sweet face and will bring smiles to everyone who sees him.

Sunny Cuddles is an adorable big 38 inch mocha brown teddy bear who is always thankful for hugs and may try to take the last slice of pie if you don't watch him carefully.

Anytime is a great time for a Giant Teddy Bear - show someone how thankful you are by sending one of our Thankful Heart Bears. It is a gift you both will always remember.

Lady Cuddles Goes Rock and Roll… and tells Breast Cancer to Stick It!

Monday, October 7, 2013

Giant Pink Teddy Bear Star from recent "Modern Family" fame brings charm and pinkness to Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Giant Teddy bear Lady Cuddles appears with Eric Stonestreet "Cam" and Jesse Tyler Ferguson "Mitchell" on ABC's Modern Family.

Giant Teddy bear Lady Cuddles is no stranger to the spotlight, and now the guest star from ABC’s Modern Family “My Hero” episode in May 2013 is bringing her pinkness to October Breast Cancer Awareness month in Texas.  And she’s doing it rock and roll style.

We all remember the rumors during her stay in Hollywood of a secret romance with a bad boy rocker. Lady Cuddles always refused to comment, but those closest to her say she developed a keen interest in the drums around the same time.

Speculation continued when she was spotted speeding about on motor scooters down in Florida with her brother, Sunny Cuddles, that she might have discovered a bit of a wild streak in her demure pinkness.

Giant Teddy bear Lady Cuddles races around Florida on a bright blue scooter, with brother Sunny Cuddles hanging on for the ride.

While we may never know the details of who stole her heart for that brief time, Lady Cuddles is not hiding her rock and roll drumming style now!

Giant Teddy bear Lady Cuddles gets one-on-one drumming lessons from rock band drummer and breast cancer survivor, April Samuels, who founded "Breast Cancer Can Stick It!" a non-profit organization to promote awareness, support and resources. Photo courtesy of Sanders Photography.

She got a call from April Samuels, who recently founded “Breast Cancer Can Stick It!” after her own bout with Triple Negative breast cancer. April invited Lady to be the spokesbear for some fun and unique events in three Texas cities in October. Lady gladly accepted and headed down to Texas.

Lady Cuddles had barely arrived in Dallas when she was overcome with the power of the music, and the big bear rushed the stage where April and her tongue-in-cheek 80’s hair band, Metal Shop, was playing and knocked April off the drums to sit in on the set. The crowd went wild!

She had some long talks with April as they set the strategy for the Breast Cancer Can Stick It! events. April wants people to know how important early detection is. Some forms, like the Triple Negative breast cancer she was diagnosed with in October 2010, are particularly aggressive and time can mean all the difference. Triple Negative is also a form of breast cancer with more limited treatment options.

But more than that, April also wants to emphasize that getting a cancer diagnosis isn’t a death sentence. It is a challenge to be faced with strength, love and positive attitude. April said she found so much strength and power in telling breast cancer to stick it.

Lady Cuddles jumped into the cause with all paws, inspired by April's journey and sunny outlook on life.

Lady Cuddles at Brighton Collectibles, Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, TX (a suburb of Dallas.) She was there helping with their Power of Pink Campaign, and a portion of all proceeds went to Breast Cancer Can Stick It!

Lady Cuddles joined April Samuels (Breast Cancer Can Stick It!) and Dan Shinder from Drum Talk TV on a Skype conference, offering endless celebrity guest suggestions for the October events in Texas... Smokey, Yogi, Pooh, even Jay Cutler were mentioned by the big pink bear.

Lady Cuddles takes a little break while in Dallas, Texas acting as Giant Teddy spokesbear for Breast Cancer Can Stick It!

Lady Cuddles and Giant Teddy CEO Ray Kohsravi agreed it was a great idea to donate 5% of all pink teddy bear sales in October to breast cancer research.

Giant Teddy is donating 5% of pink bear sales this October to breast cancer research.

Lady Cuddles is ready to have big bear fun at the upcoming fundraiser concert events in Texas, starting on October 12th, where she may get a chance to drum onstage if her lessons keep going well. She’s also been in training for the Komen walk in Dallas on October 19th.

Founder April Samuels (front and center) w/ The Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Drumline with Komen staff including Race for the Cure Co-Chairs - Raegan Arrington and Kim Tillinghast, Executive Director Jennifer Legere, Operations Coordinator Development Associate, Christina Cutshall and more!

Lady Cuddles wants everyone to join her in telling Breast Cancer to Stick It. And when a six-foot giant pink teddy bear tells you something, you’d be wise to listen.
