Anna got this bear from her German uncle and aunt last Christmas. He came in a small travel suitcase. She liked the suitcase, but not the bear – she is rather indifferent to stuffed animals. He was sitting next to a pile of other stuffed animals in our bedroom until our papa took him on a trip to Germany. Now travel bear sends Anna emails every day and tells her what papa has been up to. There are also pictures of him (travel bear, that is) with friends and family. Anna loves these emails, and I have a hunch that a Travel Bear will be a lot more popular once he returns home.
