My favorite friend in green overalls!

What do you think of when you think of green overalls? I know my first thought is always my old friend Corduroy who just happens to be celebrating his 40th anniversary this year. 40 years? He looks awfully good for a 40 year old bear.

In celebration of Corduroy's 40th year Russ has introduced a new line of Corduroy themed merchandise including an adorable 9" stuffed version which by the way would be the perfect sized to be peeking out of your stockings this December. Along with the 9" size you can get Corduroy in almost any size you need him in from 9" to 15" there is a bear for everyone.

The coolest thing though is the new Read with Me Corduroy bear. I've been dying to see one of these in real life but basically he is a 15" Corduroy bear that is activated by touch and is holding his own story in his arms. With a gentle squeeze he will begin reading his own story as well as moving his head as he reads. I mean really who better to tell Corduroy's story than Corduroy himself?

Along with the plush you can find a whole line of Russ brand Corduroy items including pens, plush backpack clips and even bookmarks all of which are "plush". Want one for yourself? Visit Russ Berrie's website and us the find us option to find a retailer near you.

I have one little Corduroy over here that is looking for a new home.

I love Corduroy because he is adorable. My granddaughter would also love him. She loves to be read to. Corduroy would be perfect entertainment for her.

Besides being a bear collector, I love that he comes with batteries!

My wife is a bear collector and she adores how cute Corduroy is.

Growing up money was tight like today. Inside of throwing out the old corduroy pants, stuffed dolls were made out of them. Memories with this bear. Thanks for having this contest.

kblover said...

Corduroy reminds me when I was young and how much I loved him. Now my daughter enjoys him too and this win would be a great way to pass down a memory from generation to generation.

Ladytink_534 said...

I just adore Corduroy! He's the cutest bear! When I was a kid I would read the books over and over again.

Brimful Curiosities said...

I seriously wanted my own Corduroy bear when I was little. I made my mom read the book to me over and over. Now I read the book to my daughter. I never ended up receiving my own Corduroy, but maybe my daughter will be luckier?

Jenn S. said...

I love to read Corduroy books with the kids. They love them and it brings back memories from my childhood. Corduroy bear would be greatly loved at our house.

Kelly said...

I really like Corduroy because he just seems like a really sweet bear. I remember watching him growing up.

It is a great story! We have the book and DVD and love Corduroy at our house!I like that the little girl loved him even when he was "imperfect", but Corduroy went on a little adventure to repair his own overalls, making him the most perfect toy ever!

Oh my! Only one left in stock. These must be the hot thing for Christmas. I love Corduroy. I remember that book so well and loving it, yet always feeling so bad for him before he was rescued from the toystore. My dad used to buy us the stuffed animals with crooked noses, lopsided ears, etc. because he always felt bad for them and thought no one would buy the "flawed" ones - just like Corduroy. In fact my dad recently bought my son a stuffed dog with only one eye. I pretended not to notice - but I knew why he did it. ;)

This bear in green was my little brothers favorite bear in the whole world when he was little...... It was always "read me the bear story" or " play with me and Corduroy"....

I remember those days with great fondness as my little brother was killed in Iraq on Christmas day....

I now have a little boy of my own that I would love to share the joys of Corduroy with while also sharing a piece of his uncle with him......
