THE 2015 CARBERRY ANGEL - Ed's 40th Angel!


    It is quite likely that each one of us has had at least one teddy bear when we were children. The 2015 angel features an angel holding a fuzzy teddy bear.

   Even in this digital age, if you look hard enough, you will probably discover that somewhere in the midst all the other toys and dolls and action figures there is probably at least one teddy bear. Teddy bears are still among the most popular gifts for children and sometimes given to adults to signify love, congratulations or sympathy. Everybody loves a soft & cuddly teddy bear! 

    It is interesting that the name “teddy bear” comes from former United States President Theodore Roosevelt, who was commonly known as "Teddy". The name originated from an incident which occurred during a hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902. The first of these commercial bears were produced by the Ideal Novelty and Toy Co.

You can order one or more of the 2015 angel simply by clicking on the one of the buttons below.
