Searching – 80s GUND BROWN BEAR with K-3 on the TAG — 44 Comments

  1. Tami, I wish it was that easy! Unfortunately, that is not the correct bear. I have seen that one on eBay before. Thank you for searching and let me know if you find anything else. Happy Holidays!

  2. Hi Tim, how tall is the bear you are looking for? May help in the search. πŸ™‚ Thanks

  3. He is around 15″ tall. Will pay lots of money for whoever sells me this bear! Thank you.

  4. Hi Tim – Ebay Item No. 310229176396 maybe not quite the colour but the closest I have seen to your bear. πŸ™‚

  5. Brenda, thank you for searching. I have seen these before and although close, they are not the same bear πŸ™

  6. I’m still looking lol – Ebay Item No. 110598584227 -what about this guy – could he be close enough?

  7. Thank you for continuing to look. Unfortunately, that is not the bear. This bear is extremely hard to find!

  8. Yes, very hard to find… thought that one was the wrong colour but maybe the same bear. Perhaps a fuller description might help. Does he have a black nose and black eyes (as appears in the photo)? Are his feet pads leather? Anything else you can think of that may help? Thanks πŸ™‚

  9. Thank you for continuing to look!

  10. are you sure he isn’t a DAKIN? I have a teddy very similar to this one which I got as a baby and He was made by Dakin. When I saw this picture, I thought it looked closest to my teddy as I have ever seen. I have been looking for a new teddy as well but he is dakin and not gund.

    Does anyone know what the K-3 code means? Appears that they had K-1 through at least K-7. Seems trivial but might help as many are being referenced with this info. Will keep at it.

  12. Carrie – I am guessing the ‘K’ may stand for KOREA? Not sure what the ‘3’ means but going by how hard it is to find probably means how many were made … just joking, of course! πŸ™‚

  13. I check eBay regularly… I wouldn’t miss it if it appeared on eBay.

    That is the bear that everyone mistakes for the actual bear.

    Wish it were that easy! Been looking for years.

    Thank you to everyone for continuing to search!

  14. Hi again Tim, yes it is very close I have made the same mistake. πŸ™‚ Just to clarify the differences are the eyes and nose colour; and perhaps the fur colour is a shade different (or not?) is that all or are there other differences that I can’t see?

  15. The bear is not jointed. Another words the arms and legs just hang with no joints. Also, the fur is not the same. Maybe a bigger picture can be posted to show the bear fur better. If you look at the two bears next to one another you will see they are not a match. Thank you!

  16. There one on eBay right now – 230735541317. I also have one but would never ever sell her. Good luck!

  17. Are you still looking for the bear? I have a Gund collector’s classic brown bear that is walking on its feet if you want me to send you a picture?

  18. Kathy, although it is a SIMILAR bear it unfortunately is not the same ELUSIVE bear.

    Thank you.

  19. Tim- I may have the bear. I can send you pictures if you like. The only problem is the used condition of my bear. The leather pads are badly torn and the leather on the nose has come off. It’s still in great condition other than that. Please let me know if you want pictures. My tag says Gund 1981 k-3 my email is neatogal@hotmail.com
