For people who love Teddy Bears!
My name is Gino Bear. I am a Steiff Bear, about sixteen years old, very good looking and admired by women the world over. I have always lived with my present keepers, they introduced me to fast cars and racing and I took to it like a bear to water. I love anything Italian (hence my name Gino,which my keepers thought was a good name for an Italian Teddy Bear) but I especially love Italian cars and racing them on tracks around the world with my keepers. I have raced on many tracks around the world. I have entered (and finished) the Cannonball Run (not many Teddy Bears can say tha, can they?t). I have met many famous people, including Nigel Mansell who thought I was a very cool bear.
I love travelling and my keepers take me all over the world travelling with them. I have of course, been to Italy on many occasions where I visited the Blue Grotto in Capri and the Vatican in Rome. I’ve climbed Etna in Sicily and Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples I have sailed on board the QE2 and QM2 and I have visited New York, many times. I have been to the top of the Empire State Building and visited Jazz Clubs on Broadway which is not bad for a Teddy Bear like me.
I would like to find homes for some of my Old Teddy Bear friends and maybe you will stop by my site now and again and see if you are interested in giving an Old Bear a home. I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have about me, or my Old Bear friends. In the meantime look after your Old Teddy Bears. All my love.
Ciao Gino …. x
