I come here asking what brand my childhood bear teddy is. From what I have gathered he was sold rather at Walmart or Target and was sold swaddled in a blanket. There are no tags on him and his color has faded from what I assume to be his original color pink. (My parents re-dyed him pink occasionally when I was a kid)
My aunt purchased him for me when I was very young (between newborn and 2 years) so the date purchased was anywhere between 2003-2006.
I have scoured eBay looking up any key words that might help me find what his brand but I usually find nothing.
Details: embroidered eyes and nose as well as that small black dot above his nose. He has a small tail. He can also sit upright.
I remember similar bears and I believe they were called names like 'slumber, security, huggies' and always came with a blanket.
Do you remember if he ever had a tag? Are there any 'remnants' where a tag might have been?
I'm asking because the placement of the tag will help identify the brand/company.
You say that he sits up but does he have joints? Or is he limber all over? What are his measurements?

Hello! I'm hoping to find the brand of this stuffed animal bear of mine. He's a multicolored bear (pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and magenta) with a blue snout, magenta paws and inner ears, a yellow mouth and nose, and sparkly yellow eyes. There is a picture of him attached to this post.
At first I thought he might be a Ty brand beanie baby, but I doubt it, as he has no beanie filling anywhere, and I've found nothing like him on the Ty website.The only tag he has is a sewn-on tag that says 'All new material. 100% polyester fiber. Reg. No. PA-5022 (RC), MA# 1247' on one side and 'GOFFA International Corp. East Rutherford, NJ 07073. Made in Lianyungang, China. DOLGEN20003901L17' on the other. I tried searching for anything similar to him made by 'GOFFA', but again, I found nothing
Your bear appears to be an older plush, but the brand is definitely Goffa. Your bear was probably one of the first 'rainbow bears' but some people will just call them 'multi-color bears'.
You did not provide any information about approximate age or size, but if you are looking for a replacement you will probably only find one with a visual search online, maybe Google as well as other sites.
Goffa does have websites, but most of those only deal with sales so vintage information may not be available.
Their main site has FAQ and info is listed below:
"Where can I find a replacement toy or part?
Locate the label (on the rear of the toy) and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details written on it. If the toy is still on the market, we will be able to tell you where to find one. Sadly, we do not keep any of these toys in stock.

I bought one of your products from a store and would like to purchase it again. Where can I buy this product?
If you email this site, they may be able to provide some information, but probably there are no duplicate bears available.
Your stuffed bear has a tag that says 'GOFFA International Corp. East Rutherford, NJ 07073. Made in Lianyungang, China.'

I found a similar toy, but this is a dog:
Pay attention to the identical yellow shiny eyes, to the nose embroidered in the shape of a heart.

I recently lost this stuffed animal. It had hard eyes and a nose. It had a small tail on its bum. The tag was located near its bum and had something red as the logo. Paws were larger and had stitching to make them more 'realistic'. It was gotten around early 2004 from a local drug store if that helps. It was also made with PVC pellets.
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you and have a good day.
Looks like he has had a lot of loving over the years.
I believe your bear was probably made by TY - Beanie Baby and TY products were sold in drug stores for several years - some places still today.
It may be difficult to find the exact bear, but this one sure looks like a winner.
However, it is not in the US and will be expensive to purchase.
There are several TY bears that look a lot like yours. The main difference seems to be the color, as most bears are darker.
Of course, yours has probably lost some of its colors.
This seems to be one of the most popular bears.
You may have received it in 2004 but some years (like 2000) are still being sold new today. Check out Walmart:

I'm just wondering if anybody can identify this fairly scary, grey, fuzzy teddy bear. He is about 35 cm high and 30 cm wide. He has a red ribbon with white circles on it around his neck. He has no labels, but has a red cap with a blue letter "P" on it. He has large googly eyes and pretty bad teeth with big red lips.
We believe he was a prize from a Nickelodeon TV show in Australia sometime just after 2010.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
This one looks very similar. www.google.com/
Hmm no tags? He looks like a target brand fuggler. They have been made for a few years now.
Do you know anything about him? What's is he stuffed with?
Cuteish monster plush has been around for a while. The cap is what I am puzzling over. I feel like if he is not a fuggler, the cap is the key. I will keep searching.
If you learn anything, post back. Thanks for sharing!

If there is no tag, it will be difficult to find another vintage plush bear like yours. You might try setting up an alert on ebay & one may turn up eventually:
