    I have a bear from Build-a-Bear that does the same sort of thing. I've printed the diary cards for parents to fill in. It's a great way to be able to look at what children do with their parents at weekends and when they go away. All parents will e-mail me all their holiday snaps with our Bear and I print them (but that's about my great printer and another story!)

    I'd say go for it, it's an exciting thing for children to be involved in! x
    Just when I find the key to success, someone comes along and changes all the locks!

    We have Benny Bear.

    All the LO's want to take him everywhere, so far he has been to

    USA
    Austria
    China
    France
    India
    Plus loads of places in the UK

    He has met

    Cat Deeley
    Amanda Holden (dressed as Princess Fiona in Shrek)
    The Chuckle Brothers
    Gary Lineker


    We have a logbook with all his adventures in which the LO's fill out, put in photo's and any thing else they want.
    I like Sandy64's idea of defferant clothes and using him for differant roles.

    Good luck with your bear if you decide to go with it, you will be surprised where he ends up and who he meets on his trips.

    We have travelling Ted, he has been cruising in the Caribbean, Disney, Spain, France. He was Wills and Carolyn's Teddy was Kate complete with Wedding Dress and Will had Grey morning suit lol. The children love it, our Ted's even visited Nursey and Reception Class. I think they open a whole new learning opportunity and an insight into what the children do at home . At the moment they have swim shorts/ swimsuit sunhats and sunglasses . Can you tell our theme is Beach / Holidays

    I have Travelling Teds, the children love taking them on holiday and taking photos to go in their photo album.

    We look on the map where they are going, places visited are:

    Spain
    Italy
    Czech Republic
    Pakistan
    Maldives
    France
    Belgium
    Turkey
    Greece

    plus special outings.

    They are a very good idea

    I think Pauline has done a product review on Jofli Bears. i think it is in childminding help under product reviews.

    i used to have a travelling cat, but when he moved he went to live with one of my mindees!

    i was going to get a build a bear, but the other day i saw a monkey with long arms that can hang round your neck, so i think i might be getting him soon

    i'll make him a diary and probably a few clothes!
