Annette Funicello Bears – Teddy Bear, History, Information

Annette Funicello produced a line of teddy bears for the Annette Funicello Collectible Bear Company from 1992 until the last collection was made in 2004.

She partnered with talented teddy bear artists from around the world to make bears for her company. Each bear comes with Annette’s signature logo pin, sewn in label and comes in a gift box with a hand tag and a certificate of authenticity.

Spring Collection

Annette Funicello suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS) and donates a portion of the profits from the sale of her teddy bears and other enterprises to MS research and the Annette Funicello Fund for Neurological Disorders.

    I just picked up an Annette bear and I was wondering if there was a book of all her bears where I could find out more on what my bears name is. She has a dark burgundy coat with lace collar, Burgundy bow with pink roses on her head.
