This Just In - Travis wins TOBY Public Choice Award !!

I am so thrilled to tell you that my tiny Travis - as opposed to my big Travis who is my husband (and, by the way , who picked the bear's name) has won the TOBY Public Choice Award presented by Teddy Bear and Friends magazine. It is one of the biggest honors in the Teddy Bear World made so special by having been voted on by the public. I thank each of you who voted for Travis!! I am so sorry I was not able to be at TBAI this year where the awards were presented this morning. We are doing lots of renovations here and I wasn't able to prepare bears for the show. Additionally, big Travis has a "severe" case of poison ivy from pulling up weeds, etc. (well, the ivy I guess) in preparation for new windows which will be coming soon. I'll bet knowing about wee Travis will help with the itching! I'll be having postcards made with both Travis' TOBY logos on them so if you'd like one just send me an email: donna and the bears at AOL dot com (spelled out here to avoid spam - I hope) with your address if I don't have it!
Thank you again!! I'm dancing on air!!
Travis was a limited edition of two and thanks to Sue and Debbie for adopting them.

Thank you, Kay!
And indeed I am! I mowed the lawn today and fairly floated through the chore. I am so honored!
