Sunny Cuddles Goes to School - Giant Teddy at Stone Oak Elementary

Friday, November 21, 2014

If you know Sunny Cuddles, you won't be TOO surprised to find out he's in the principal's office. After all, he does love to get into "high spirited mischief" according to his permanent record.

Principal Elisabeth Krimbill welcomes new teddy bear student Sunny Cuddles to Stone Oak Elementary

But this time, he's with the principal registering to be the new Library Teddy Bear at Stone Oak Elementary!

Sunny has promised to be VERY quiet while he's in the library - and not to bring any snacks in (that will be hard for him, but he's close to the cafeteria, so...)

Uh-oh. Look who's already sleeping in class... Nobody wants you to be THAT quiet, Sunny!

Principal Krimbill asks Kristi if she can wake Sunny up and be his book buddy.

He'll be hanging out reading with students, suggesting great books, and improving his own reading skills.

Sunny at School is part of Giant Teddy's "Giving Back" initiative. We are a small company with a big heart - we wish we could donate to every worthy cause out there but we can't, so each year we select several causes to support with our life-size teddy bears. One of our favorites is elementary school libraries, where our bears help kids learn a lifelong love of reading and books.

We know Sunny Cuddles will love his new school and all the great teachers, administrators and kids there who will all love him right back. 

Sunny Cuddles is a big happy teddy bear surrounded by books at the Stone Oak Elementary Library

Congratulations Stone Oak Elementary on your great record of learning excellence!

Sunny's Thanksgiving Trivia

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Our big teddy bears all love Thanksgiving because it is about being thankful for the blessings you have and the people (and bears!) you love - oh, and eating of course (even if they are often still full from all the Halloween candy they snorffled down. We mean you, Sunny.)

Most Americans know some Thanksgiving history but Sunny Cuddles picked a few of his favorites to share so you can wow your friends and family with your amazing trivia knowledge as you gather together this Thanksgiving.

Sunny's Thanksgiving Trivia 
Did You Know...
"Thankful for hugs!" -Sunny Cuddles life-size teddy bear from GiantTeddy.com

  • Thanksgiving was declared an official holiday by Abraham Lincoln in 1863.  
  • Some people say it was the 17-year letter writing campaign by the woman who wrote the nursery rhyme, "Mary Had a Little Lamb," Sarah Josephna Hale, that pushed Thanksgiving into the spotlight to be a national holiday. 
  • The first Thanksgiving was in October and lasted 3 days. 
  • About 50 Pilgrim men and 90 Wampanoag Indian men attended...there were only about 4 Pilgrim women who had survived the hardships and if they were around, they were cooking. 
  • The biggest pumpkin pie on record according to Guinness Book of World Records was 2,020 pounds, and 12 feet long. (This is my favorite fact - fetch my pie fork!)
  • The first football game played on Thanksgiving was in 1934 when the Detroit Lions played the Chicago Bears. The Lions have played every Thanksgiving since then, except when they were all away fighting in WWII.
  • A Turducken is a Turkey stuffed with a Duck stuffed with a Chicken...and a lot of them are eaten at Thanksgiving! 
  • Minnesota is one of the biggest turkey-producing states in America. 
  • Cranberries were close by the original celebration Plymouth, but they were so tart it is doubtful they were eaten by anyone then! Massachusetts is still a huge supplier of all the cranberries we love in sauces at the holidays. 
  • Giant Teddy has some mighty cute Thanksgiving teddy bears to help you say how Thankful you are... and one of them is ME! (Well, that's not really trivia, but I was SURE you'd want to know...)

Thanksgiving teddy bears are a fun way to tell someone how thankful you are.

Happy Thanksgiving from all the life size teddy bears and life size humans at Giant Teddy!
