Show Me Your Teddy Bear #TheGallery

We have a slight obsession with Build a Bear in our house. To be more specific, Miss C loves Build a Bear and I indulge in her love of the bear making experience. She loves choosing a new friend and given that they are about one of the only toys she plays with, I don't mind her getting a new one every now and again. Or if people give her vouchers. Or if you can buy a £10 voucher for £5...

As you can see, Miss C has lots of Build a Bears! She loves them all but her absolutely favourite companion is Ted.

Ted has been Miss C's main bear since she was a baby. Z made him for her at Build a Bear and he came to the hospital with me for when she was born. She sleeps with him every night. He has to go everywhere with her and I'm sure he'll be on the plane to Florida with us. 

The theme of the Gallery this week is dedicated to a young boy called Finlay Church. He's 10 years old and was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour last year. He's raised £17000 as a thank you to the Birmingham Children's Hospital and now he'd like to break a world record. He'd like to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for the number of teddy bears in a row. He needs over 4000! So Tara thought a selfie with a teddy would be a great way to help Fin out. 

So here is my selfie with my little girl's favourite bear; Ted. 

If you'd like to join in with the many people who have tweeted a selfie with their teddy bear then do just that and add the hashtag #OPTeddyBear
