  3. Hello Sartenada, il faudra qu’on pense à offrir un nouvel appareil-photo à Teddy 17 ! ;-)
    Un peu de nostalgie, car mes deux Teddies ont disparu dans les nombreux déménagements de la famille… :sad: J’espérais les retrouver ici, mais non !! :razz:

    • Hello Thelocalguide. Yes, this is quite a diffenren museum and there are not so many of this kind with huge collection in the world. Museum is maintened by a couple who started to collect Teddies about 30 years ago and slowly it came their profession – “owners of museum”. Thank You leaving Your comment.

  7. Thank You Sean. I guess that You know that inside it is not so easy to take photos due to lightning. I’ll try to avoid to use flash so much it is possible.

  12. Good morning Matti,
    This series warms my heart. I’m a fan of Teddy bears. If I could I would take all now in my arms and hug. The teddy right in the first picture is similar, in my blog, the teddy bear on the trike. Your Teddy is missing, the glasses. In the images 11 and 12, the teddy with the black glasses, is my first favorite. With the glasses he looks very friendly and wise. His coat is very fluffy and soft. He looks out to hug. I think these teddy bears, some children would like. The clothing of different teddy bears, pleased me very well. Teddy Bears provide warmth and harmony. In my childhood I also had a teddy bear. He was medium brown, slender and about 40 centimeters. This Teddy I loved very much. I told him everything. The stroller, in Figure 20, reminds me of photos from old times. As a baby, I was in such a stroller. In Figure 22, the teddy bear doctor, is also very important. It could be a teddy get sick and then must help the doctor. He is my second favorite. The pink pig in the last photo is my third favorite. It seems dreamy and peaceful. I also liked all the other stuffed animals, including hand puppets and marionettes. This series was interesting and also very beautiful. I am grateful for that you gave me the tip and I could watch this series.
    Dear greetings Christel

    • Hi Christel.

      Wow, that’s funny the “Teddy Teacher” in photos 11 and 12 is my absolute favorite also. Somehow “she it it” has a resemblance with one of my teacher. Anja has from her childhood her first stroller for doll here in our home. We have been giving it as a donation to the toy museum which is in Helsinki. Teddy Doctor is very nice too and I think that children played with it very much.

      Last photo the pink pig is also my favorite. I like its expression, which is so “blissful”, so lovely.

      This museum is situated quite near to my home and proud about it.

      Happy Weekend.

  13. What a wonderful museum! Maybe someday I’ll go there, I has this soft spot with teddy bear :) Did you make those two teddy bears yourself? You’re such an excellent crafter! :D

    • Hi Stilarin.

      No, no, I am not making Teddies, but this a very typical museum in Finland. We have many “small” museums with different items, for example Coffee cup museum, Mechanical music museum etc. All can be found under Categories.

      Thank You leaving Your comment.
