So, off we go! To start us off, I've found one of the earliest prototype versions of Teddy I can. In the Teddy Ruxpin fandom, I'm sure we've all seen the image of what seems to be one of the first Worlds of Wonder prototype Teddy Ruxpin bears that was designed to be a reference for mass production. Note, Ken Forsse actually created his *own* prototype Teddy and this one looks considerably different. It's possible he was used to entice investors or demonstrate the technology overseas in Asia to possible manufacturers. He was skinnier, lighter, and was rumored to house a Sharp Tape Player in the back capable of being rewound when a story had finished. He also looked considerably different than other prototype WOW bears that were used for marketing purposes.
Have you found a bear that looks like a prototype that I missed? Comment and link below!
