Me to You Tatty Teddy Bears
England's Popular Grey Bear with the Blue Nose
Me to You Tatty Teddy is an adorable, soft cuddly creature. But many people ask why he's grey, not brown like others of his plush kind. The tale of how Tatty Teddy got his name and his grey colouring with the blue nose is an adorable story, which you can hear and see in its animated form by clicking the link below to the "Me to You" official website.
This fine bear has a few different names, actually, depending on where you find him. In the UK, he's known as Tatty, but in the USA he used to also be called Tattered.
Whichever name you prefer, you can buy this lovable bear along with his clothing and bedding right here. You can also find FREE activities in the link section below. Think of all the cute options for Valentine's Day, Birthdays, and other times you just want to say, I love you. And of course, don't forget about gifts for fans.
Why Is He Different?
A Loveable and Cuddly Grey Bear Gets a Second Chance
A grey teddy bear? With a blue nose?
Who is Tatty Teddy, and why doesn't he look like other bears? Well, there's a very good reason, actually.
If you look at him closely, you can tell by his eyes that he's had a rough life. This cute little guy was abandoned in an old house along with other unwanted items.
I first saw these adorable soft toys back in the late '90s while living in Romania. I couldn't resist buying a few, which started my collection.
Since that time, I have traveled to several countries and bought both the tiny teddies and the regular-sized ones. I also have a themed T-shirt (which my granddaughter wears now) ... and a coffee mug ... and stationary. I love the cute cards.
My friends laughed at me for stopping in the toy stores, but they all fell in love with my Tatty Teddy when they saw him. He is, after all, hard to resist. Nearly impossible, I say.
Now I use the smallest ones in my collection for my themed Christmas Tree, pictured here.

Cute Accessory Items
As someone who's really attached to my Tatty Teddies, I can tell you that all of these themed items and specialty bears really are cute, and I wouldn't mind having them all myself. Well, the border wouldn't fit in in my room, but it would be great for a child's bedroom.
These items are for the non-European market as the products are from Amazon dot com.
Bears love the beach, too, you know. This one comes complete with his own folding chair, perfect for watching the waves roll in, even if just in his (or your) own imagination.
What a great way to add this lovable bear to a child's room, a kitchen perhaps, maybe an otherwise blah dorm room. These removable and easily movable wall decals won't leave a sticky mess behind.
They've really covered all the bases when it comes to the Tatty theme. Sure, your bear can wear these when you aren't, but these are real working headphones with a super cute motif.
