Lindee Bears – Teddy Bear, History, Information

Lindee Bears were made in Sydney, N.S.W. from 1944 to 1976. The name came from a pet name that was used for Mr. and Mrs. Lindenberg. They were made of English mohair, both fully jointed and unjointed, with glass eyes and brown vinyl paw pads. They were labeled with a printed cloth tag bearing a reclining fawn, with the words “Lindee Toys the Prestige Name in Soft Toys,” sewn into the seam of the paw pad. Lindee teddy bears have large noses and mouths sewn in black, some with exaggerated black claws. Lindee bears were made until the company went bankrupt in 1976.

    I have a Lindee Toys white plush lamb with shiny black vinyl hooves and gold bell around its neck. It was a present when I was born in 1967. I haven’t seen one like it. Did Lindee Toys make one of a kind or limited editions?
