January 13, 2003 - Gettysburg, Pa. - The Boyds Collection Ltd.® is introducing nine new wunnerful plush and resin pieces exclusive for Mother's Day 2003. These bears are guaranteed to warm the heart and make mom smile!
The Bestest Mom Collection has six new plush bears including Joyce M. Berriman, Dorthy B. Beansley, Momma McBearlove and Baby, Susie B. Bearlove, Nana, and Ruthie. The bears range in size from 6" up to 16"... what size you buy depends on the size of your heart and your wallet!! Joyce M. Berriman is our 16" snow-white teddy featuring a floral-print bow and matching paw pads. She holds a heart pillow with "Love Ya Mom" embroidered on it! In our 10" size, there's Dorthy B. Beansley and Momma McBearlove and Baby (of course Baby is not nearly as big as Momma... she's only 5.5"). Dorthy is a gold bean-filled bear featuring a floral-print bow and special message for mom! And, Momma McBearlove, a great gift for new mothers, is a light gold bear dressed in a floral-print dress, bow, and lilac pants as she holds on tight to her lil' bear cub, a cream teddy in a lilac romper! We also have two 8" bears - Susie B. Bearlove and Nana. Gold chenille bear Susie pays tribute to motherhood with an embroidered pillow with butterfly design, and cream bear Nana-complete with floral bow and flower button-holds a watering can pillow that will bring a twinkle to Grandma's eye! And, last but not least, is Ruthie. Gold bear Ruthie holds a bunch of felt posies in her embroidered fabric flowerpot! All bears range in price from $10 to $26.
The Bestest Mom Collection also includes a new Bearstone, a great piece for Mom to display on her desktop, a tabletop, or any spot where it will cheer her day! Our Bearstone tribute to motherhood features a momma bear holdin' her baby cubs close and the words "World's Bestest Mom." And, we feature a new resin hinged treasure box shaped like a basket. The rose-covered basket opens to reveal a special Mother's Day message on the inside lid; a silver tray with special treasures; and at the bottom, a mini McNibble mouse, holdin' a precious pink rose form Mom! The collection also includes a beautiful pin featuring a momma bear cuddlin' with her lil' cubs and flanked by a "World's Bestest Mom" banner! Prices for the resin items range from $5 to $16.
