Happy Teddy Bear Day! In celebration of this fabulous holiday, I'm gonna flash back to my favorite teddy ever, A.G. Bear. As a kid, I wished that animals could talk, and this stuffed bear made it possible. Way ahead of the times, he had a voice box – if you talked, he would make sounds back. He could even respond to other A.G. Bears! The problem was, I didn’t know anyone else who owned one and now, many years later, I still can’t find someone who remembers this stuffed animal.

Because today also happens to be my birthday (and I'm feeling nostalgic about my 7th, to be exact), I'm wondering if any of you recall this special toy? I swear I’m not making him up!
