Teddy Bridgewater Teddy Bear

Post by DK Sweets » Sat May 30, 2015 11:39 pm

My first kid is due at the beginning of July, so obviously I'm getting him a few Vikings things. I was hoping for something player related, too, and the idea of a Teddy Bear with a Teddy Bridgewater jersey just makes me chuckle. The problem is I'm apparently the only person who has thought of this idea. Does anybody have any good ideas on how to make this happen?

These are companies that make custom bears, my grandmother was a Teddy bear nut and ordered some from Germany, with mechanical joints.
My Grandfather made a fortune in real estate, post World War 2. My grandmother spent a lot of it. She had a huge room, full of Teddy bears

I am sure they would know much about what you might need.

I got my four-year-old a "It's Teddy Time!" Vikings t-shirt that has a Teddy bear with horns and the number 5 on it. Online. I'll try to find where I got it but there may not be infant ones. Though the good news is Teddy will be a multiple Pro-Bowl/Super Bowl MVP by the time the guy fits in it :)

Oh, and congrats!

Thanks DP!

And thank you for the links, jackal. I sent an email to one of the sites and I think they will be able to somewhat replicate a Bridgewater jersey. Now I just have to wait and see what kind of pricing I'm looking at.

I'm pretty sure your looking licensing cost, bear production, plus standard costs(extra shipping and handling).. so 30 percent of what a standard size bear would be maybe 40- 50 bucks if the bear is close to 30 bucks without
custom needs...
