Heather has written with a renewed plea for help.
Well I have purchased all three bears that were posted to Ebay, and they are ALL the wrong size!!!
I now have one large 16 in Ming Panda and two 11″ Panda’s.
I called the Russ Company, and they verified that there were three different sizes of this bear made, and that the tag on one of the small bears has the number code for Small.
I am still in need of the medium size bear 12-15 inches tall. I am guessing 14 inches.
MING PANDA BY RUSS FROM THE BEARS FROM THE PAST SERIES.
Heather has found out that it is a Russ Panda named Ming.
I am looking for a 12 inch tall Panda Bear that can sit. He is stringy, if that makes since, not cheap stringy though. He didn’t have fur that could be brushed or moved around with your hand. He was just so unique. Maybe some kind of chenille?
Beary also has black pads for the feet, not white, and if I remember they are kinda corduroy. He has a green tag on the bottom that has the material information and I’m pretty sure it’s Hallmark written on it. It has to be about 12 yrs old.
I bought this bear for my daughter at a yard sale when she was four. It has been her pride and joy ever since. My mom came for a visit about three months ago and Tiffany took Beary with her. Well, she forgot him and, of course, I went crazy.
My mom said she knew the lady that worked at the hotel so we called her. This lady swore up and down that she put Beary in her car, and she would bring him to me at church. Well, two weeks went by and tears every night. I finally called this lady and said I was going to meet her that day and get the bear back. She informed me that she was no longer working at the hotel, and Beary was not in the box in her car.
I went crazy again. I called the hotel, and the guy working the desk said he had seen the bear and was playing with it just two days earlier. He looked in the cabinet, and she was gone. I have spoken to the manager numerous times, and she said that she was sure the bear would turn up, but she never did. I offered a $100.00 reward to the staff and nothing. I have searched every sight I can find trying to locate a bear like this, and it is like she never existed.
