October is a BIG month at Giant Teddy!

Friday, October 17, 2014

October is a BIG month at Giant Teddy! It is such a fun and busy month for all the big teddy bears, and it heads us straight into the festive holiday season. 

Every October, our pink teddy bears lend their paws to the Breast Cancer Awareness cause, supporting multiple foundations. This year, we are supporting Texas-based "Breast Cancer Can Stick It" with donations of pink Lady Cuddles bears. A Giant Teddy team walked in the Susan G. Komen Orange County race for the cure in late September, and we are donating 10% of profits on all pink bear sales in October.

Lending pink paws to the cause to give back - Giant Teddy donating to Breast Cancer

October 8th was "Take Your Teddy Bear to Work" and the bears had a lot of fun showing off their professional side with a fun social media giveaway.

Halloween teddy bears are super fun to celebrate the spooky season or just be a cuddly buddy to trick or treat with - but don't let them be in charge of the candy. They'll eat it all and have sticky paws.

This year our Halloween Teddy bears are ON SALE with an extra 10% off if you use code: BooBear at checkout. 

And we have a few more Halloween surprises up our furry sleeves, so keep hanging out with us all October long!

Next Month: Gobble Gobble, time to be Thankful.

We aren't Ted the Movie Bear!

Hi everyone - we get a LOT of comments on social media about two of our big teddy bears looking just like Ted. Or even calling them Ted. 

Cutie Chubs and Shaggy Cuddles asked if they could blog about it today...

So Cutie Chubs and I are kind of tired of being called, "Ted" ... he's the bear in that movie with Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Giovanni Ribisi, and Seth MacFarlane. He had a bit of a foul bear mouth sometimes, was funny sometimes, and might have even made you cry at one point.

And while we totally love that a movie was made about a bear being clever and having a job, we just aren't him.

If you meet either of us in person you'll see we are seriously cute, bigger than Ted (in some of our sizes), and polite enough to have dinner with your mom.

There is a movie about a bear named Ted.
He has a big body and a really big head.
He might look like us but not totally so
Our name is not Ted... we thought you should know. 
--An Original Poem by Giant Teddy bears 
Cutie Chubs & Shaggy Cuddles

Hi, I'm Shaggy Cuddles! I'm totally adorable, with soft furry light brown fur and a snappy checkered bow tie. My name, though, is NOT Ted. But I AM famous - I was in a TV special with the guys from "Myth Busters" and I also happen to be a personal bear friend of Jennette McCurdy.

I'm so cute! But I'm NOT Ted... I'm Shaggy Cuddles from Giant Teddy!

Hi, I'm Cutie Chubs! I have super soft light amber brown fur, and my name is NOT Ted

Cutie Chubs is from Giant Teddy

He loves to travel - here's Cutie visiting Portland, Oregon

Cutie Chubs likes to grill - famous for his kabobs & burgers at all the Giant Teddy picnics. 

If you'd like to meet us, come visit GiantTeddy.com - and we'll introduce you to all of our giant teddy bear friends while you are there!

If you are looking for Ted, well, you'll just have to buy the movie.
