I just fell in love with Steiff Bears as a child growing up in England. As a British expat living in California seeing Marc Hoberman's "Teddy Bears" brought back fond childhood memories of "chocky" my constant childhood companion. The personalities of the bears come to life through the photography making this book something special for bear lovers the world over.

I Picked up this gem of a book at a Teddy Bear convention in Chicago. What a wonderfully beautiful book this is. The photographs are gorgeous(how did they get those bears to pose like that) and the text reveals a lot about each bears personality. If your a Teddy Bear LOVER and collector like I am then the book Teddy Bears is a must for your collection!
What a gorgeous book Jun 16, 2001
I am a book lover and a Teddy bear lover and this is one of the most amazing books I have ever seen. I was recently at the book show in Chicago and was stopped dead in my tracks by the photographs and the delightful captions in this book. The bears are cute beyond words, the captions are endearing, and the young photographer and writer is going to go places. He is destined for quite a career. This book will become part of my personal collection and also is slated for Christmas giving, baby showers, birthdays, and anyone else that gets a gift from me.

If you only by one Teddy Bear book this year, make it this one! In fact, if you are buying this book as a present, better buy two. Because when it arrives and you look through it, you're going to want one for yourself! These bears have a whimsy and outlook on the world that's all their own! Marc Hoberman is a fantastic photographer with a real knack for bringing these bears, and their world, to vivid life. The captions are gently humorous, giving readers an insight into the world as bears see it. Captain Sam and pool-playing Douglas Padpaw are among my favorites, but they are all wonderful. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!
