i just thought i'd let you all know... bit late maybe!! ... but in the bear factory they sell an ASTHMA FRIENDLY teddy bear ....
'This toy meets asthma friendlyÂ® standards according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This tells you that:
'It has been manufactured from materials that do not contain certain chemicals and allergens known to affect asthma and allergies.
If under normal conditions of use, the specific care guidelines are followed, this toy will not accumulate high levels of household allergens.
Quality and safety testing indicates that this toy will withstand the care code outlined.'
Great for kids... big or small (including me i was vey chuffed with mine!!) and you can even dress it up!!!
ps HAPPY CHRISTMAS
