How much would you spend on the fancy little cuddle toy that captures hearts world over? Teddy bear, the perfect kiddie cuddle thing that sensitive lovers love to gift to their pink-loving girlfriends, that parents love to indulge their children with at least once in a lifetime, is something you would want to buy up even if there is no perfect occasion to gift it or use it.
At the American International Toy Fair in New York on Sunday, an out-of-box teddy bear created quite a buzz at the Gund booth. For, it was plush, had amazing features, and sported an all-time high price tag of $10,000.
The Snuffles toy is replete with all things precious in the name of a toy. It is made with white alpaca fur. Black Tahitian pearls make up its eyes. And the teddy bear also sports a 10-carat diamond necklace with aÂ white gold chain. It was only natural that the toy became a showpiece of sorts at the fair, with a security guard keeping his watchful eye over it. As for the teddy bear, it was enclosed in a glass case and further protected by a velvet rope barricade.
Now, it is anyoneâ€™s guess how a child hoping to cuddle it up, would reach anywhere near it. In times of recession, take heart from the teddy bear, for it is meant more for a charity auction than a fancy kiddie buy. Snuffles, the bear, will tour the country till it goes up for bidding.
