I’m looking for a DAKIN 1985 large tan bear with orange and brown calico print ears and paws. He had a heart patched on his tummy with TATTERED TEDDY written on the patch and a plaid ribbon around its neck in green, orange, and white that coordinated with the other patches.
Back in 1986, my high school sweetheart (who is now an exec at NASA but, unfortunately, is married to someone else) gave me this adorable Dakin beige Tattered Teddy. It was so cute. I brought it to college with me and out into the ’real world’ when I finished grad school. In 1997, my apartment was burglarized and vandalized by my then ex-boyfriend (the courts said the evidence was ’circumstantial’, however, and he got away with the crime). My Tattered Teddy was knifed in the back and rear end.
When I came home and found all of the damage, I noticed that my teddy bear had a strange lean to it, and when I turned it over and saw the filling coming out of the back and rear, I was aghast. Who would knife a teddy bear? Only a complete sicko. It’s a good thing I hadn’t been home.
The Nashua, New Hampshire police department confiscated it as evidence. I have been trying to replace that bear for years, but all I remembered about it was its color, length, and that it had patches that said Tattered Teddy sewn onto its belly. I really, really would like to replace this bear, and I have been having a heck of a time trying to find it.
Please contact me if you find one.
