July 10 – Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day

Standard

Happy Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day! Today many people will have picnics with their beloved teddy bears. Such a humble toy, but people have still managed to make a ridiculous one. To celebrate today I bring you the worlds most expensive stuffed teddy, from German company Steiff. The fur is made from gold thread and the eyes are diamond and sapphire. It originally sold at around $84 000 USD but a resale in October 2000 sees the bear worth $182 550. It also looks absolutely terrifying. In my personal opinion, the eyes are WAY too intense.

Speaking of things that are a little too intense…oh fashion, how you amuse me so.
