Cutie Chubs Photo Blog: Snowy Mountain Adventures in Portland, Oregon

Friday, April 18, 2014

Giant Teddy Bears are lovable, cuddly, adorable and so soft. They make life so much fun in so many ways. They love to just hang out with you but they also LOVE to travel and have adventures...

Hi! I'm Giant Teddy Bear Cutie Chubs and this is my Portland, Oregon Snow Adventure Photo Blog : ) 

Cutie Chubs is such a - well, cutie! He's got super soft light amber brown fur that makes him extra-huggable, a big chubby nose and a tubby bear tummy. Our Chubs teddy bear family is our biggest family of teddy bears for their size, with big round arms and legs and oversized heads. And around Giant Teddy, being "extra big" is really an achievement! 

Cutie went to Portland, Oregon on vacation with his friend Katy and shared a lot of his adventures. He was telling all the other bears he might be the first Giant Teddy in professional snow sporting events and showed them one or two pictures of him whooshing along... but then they got their paws on of ALL the pictures and some are pretty funny! Even if Cutie didn't want to share them all, we wanted you to see them...

Wow, it is so beautiful here. I found this sled and figured I'd show off some rad teddy bear moves on the snowy slopes...

Uh... [See Below for our Caption Contest Entries!]

Please tell me the camera isn't on. Oh it is? Uh, this one? Well I lost a quarter in the snow and was looking for it. And I was trying to limber up with some stretches for my next big run. No I didn't fall face first off my sled. NEXT PICTURE PLEASE. 

Here I am, gaining some sweet speed down the hill, whoooohooooo!

Look at me go, I ROCK! Loving the speed, and the wind in my fur!

Hey, wait, uh-oh, no, no... TREE!!!

No! I'm fine! Meant to do that! Yep, this tree trunk is quite strong, tell the rangers it passed inspection... uh, a little help, it's very cold and I am losing feeling in my legs. No need for a photo, no really... what? You already took one? Oh. 

This bear deserves a big plate of salmon... now let's just keep some of those photos between us, the other bears at Giant Teddy might be jealous if they see them all, OK? Katy? Why are you laughing? 

Cutie Chubs will be sharing more of his adventures in Oregon and other travels in future blogs! Meanwhile, visit all the big teddy bears on Giant Teddy's website to meet your new travel adventure bear buddy!

We decided that ALL the entries in our Caption Contest were really fun and we published them all along with the person's name who submitted them! We highlighted the 4 that Cutie Chubs chuckled the loudest at when we read them to him - we love our Giant Teddy social media friends, you make life really fun.

Giant Teddy Bears celebrate National Scrabble Day

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Brownie Cuddles Loves Scrabble!

Sunday April 13 is National Scrabble Day, and our very own Giant Teddy bear Brownie Cuddles is so excited. He is a big bear who loves to play Scrabble in all forms - sometimes he even makes us spell things out with tiles in meetings when it is his turn to set the agenda.

Have you met Brownie Cuddles? He's a great big dark chocolate brown teddy bear with the softest fur that makes him so extra huggable (he says that would be a great Scrabble word by the way!)

We heard him on the phone talking to his friend, Willy Shags, who is a giant green teddy bear, challenging him to a long distance game.

Willy Shags from Giant Teddy

It seems that Willy Shags was getting ready to play Scrabble with his own new human family, the Garretts, and he thought they'd be fine having Brownie join them for a round or two.

And that's really all we knew... until we got this message from Kay Garrett.

Hi Giant Teddy, this is Kay. I guess you know Brownie Cuddles called and asked about a game of Scrabble with Willy. But before we started to play, Willy wanted to make some popcorn - you know how much he loves to snack! He's been such a good bear lately, helping us walk the dog, water the plants, and helping to take care of my mom who lives with us that I thought, "Well what harm could it do?" I found out. It started out fine, we went over the rules about hot stoves, got out all the stuff we needed, and started the pan of popcorn - we were going old school with it, no microwave. I stepped out for just a minute, heard a loud clanking, and came back in to find popcorn everywhere. We've been cleaning it up for the last 20 minutes. Can you let Brownie Cuddles know the Scrabble game has been delayed? Thanks!

The pictures she sent us tell the story pretty well. Thanks, Kay Garrett, for sharing the fun adventures of Willy Shags with us!

Things start out fine in the popcorn making plans...

And THEN Willy Shags decides he'd like to see what popcorn looks like WHILE it's popping... uh-oh.

Success at last - after about 20 minutes of clean-up! (Brownie Cuddles had the most Scrabble points after 3 rounds)

We hope all of you are enjoying a fun game of Scrabble with family or friends for National Scrabble Day! And what could be more fun than including an adorable, cuddly, special Giant Teddy bear in those plans?! If you need your own big bear for the next game night, stop by Giant Teddy and see who you think will be the most fun - and then invite them home to live with you. 

*Special Thanks to Giant Teddy Customer Kay Garrett for sharing her fun story and photos of Willy Shags. If you would like to be featured with your Giant Teddy bear in a blog adventure, please contact us on Facebook with a message, or send us an email: info@giantteddy.com

Blue Giant Teddy Bears Light it Up For Autism Awareness Month

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

It's Autism Awareness Month - Go Blue!

To honor the blue, we thought we'd introduce you to our big blue Giant Teddy bears since April is Autism Awareness Month, and April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. This year, many individuals, companies and even cities are joining in to Light it up Blue for Autism, with lots of world landmarks bathed in beautiful blue lights.

What does the face of Autism look like? Beautiful, like any other face in the world.

Are you ready for some big adorable blue-ness? They don't light up - but people's faces sure light up when they see these big blue Giant Teddy bears!

Marty Shags is one cool big blue bear!

Meet Marty Shags: he loves to make people smile, is a bit of a night owl, eats every oatmeal chocolate chip cookie on the plate in record time before you ever get a bite, and is one of the nicest bears we know.

Marty Shags getting in the holiday spirit!

Meet Happy Cuddles: he lives up to his name with one of the happiest outlooks you'll ever find! Happy likes old fashioned board games with friends and family, riding in convertibles so the wind ruffles his blue fur, and is totally into the Harry Potter series.

Happy Cuddles being silly at Halloween

Happy Cuddles was nominated for Giant Teddy Homecoming King!

Happy Cuddles is always happy to make new friends!

Meet Sammy Chubs: he recently rescued a kitten from a tree and has had all the girl bears sighing over what a hero he is - of course it helps that he's a totally adorable big chubby blue bear too! Sammy is our movie trivia buff, and seems to really love movies from the iconic 1980's (he can quote a lot of movie lines!)

You want to hug and squeeze him, don't you? Sammy Chubs has that impact on everyone!

Meet Shorty Hugs: he is everybody's pal, and has a big heart for anyone who needs a helping paw. Shorty loves to grab a quick game of basketball with some of the other big bears, and he is a big fan of Picasso's Blue period.
Aren't the hearts on Shorty Hugs' scarf so cute?!

Giant Teddy has a mission of spreading love and joy through our big bears, which come in all sizes, colors and styles... just like people! It makes the world a lot more fun, don't you think?

For more information about Autism, there are a number of excellent resources available online, including AutismSpeaks.org
