About The Author
At the age of three, I opened what became one of my most favorite Christmas presents as a child, a Teddy Ruxpin storytelling bear. Just as many other children did, I spent countless hours singing along with his stories and watching him magically move. Teddy Ruxpin has enchanted me since I was small and still continues to today.
During my junior year of college, I was accepted into the Undergraduate Research program and awarded a stipend to research a topic of my choice. I chose Teddy Ruxpin and his creators due to his colorful history, numerous iterations, and popularity that still exists today. As I continue to discover more about the toy and the people behind him, I hope to one day compile a book for other fans who enjoyed him as a child. This website serves as my resource for research, a home for my collection, a connection to the animatronic community, my trials and tribulations as I try to fix broken Teddies, and as a reminder of the joys this toy brought us as children.
