Teddy bears are often associated with children and with babies. In part, this is related to their softness and cuteness, and additionally, it has simply become a tradition. They are often seen as being related to comfort. One particular type of teddy bear that is well known is the Tatty Teddy, otherwise known as the Me to You bear.
Although these border on being collector’s items as they are small and relatively expensive, they are often associated with messages of kindness, of good meaning and of congratulations.
