BEAR # 105 CELESTIAL SEASONINGS
SLEEPYTIME BEAR & ROCKER
This is an advertising and promotional teddy

for you by the fire." Well, here's the friend. The company promoted
the tea with a limited

with bent legs, plastic nose, and embroidered eyes (shut, of course). He
wears an embroidered night shirt and a red night cap. His sewn in tag
indicates that he one of a limited edition of 5,000. The wooden rocker
came with him as a kit, and will accompany Sleepy Bear when he comes to your

I'm number 3,844 of 5,000.
