Help Me Find My Teddy Bear

One of my favourite childhood toys was a small, brown teddy bear that I'd had since around 1971. I gave it away when I was in my early teens and have regretted it ever since. I am hoping that a teddy bear expert might be able to identify the bear and provide me with some information or, perhaps, locate another one.

Here I am with my beloved brown bear when I was a toddler (around 1971 or 1972). As best as I can recall, it was around 12" tall and made of an unknown brown material to simulate fur. It had a bell in one ear and I think a thin red mouth, but I'm not sure about that.

Below is a bear that I bought on eBay is very much like my old bear. The eyes are exactly the same, but the body doesn't seem right. Since the eyes are the same, I'm guessing that my old bear and this one were made by the same company. Unfortunately, there is no tag on the eBay bear. I have seen several other bears like this one on eBay and they didn't have tags either. This is quite a mystery!

I am hoping someone can ID either bear or at least tell me the name of the company that made it. I'd like to get another one. Any information would be most appreciated. Thank you.

If you can help, please email me.
