85+ Teddy Bear Quotes That Will Warm your Heart

85+ Teddy Bear Quotes That Will Warm your Heart

What memories do the words “Teddy Bear” evoke for you? Is it warmth, love, purity, and the innocence of a child?

Teddy Bears are a big part of our childhoods – I’m pretty sure almost every child had or has a Teddy Bear growing up, which was, at least for that age, their best friend. 

In this article, you will find Teddy Bear quotes that will warm your heart and will make you remember your childhood. 

Teddy Bears are for sure a symbol of love, and even though they are usually offered to children as a gift, sometimes lovers can give each other a teddy bear as a symbol of affection. 

I remember I had my fair share of teddy bears – but there was one in particular, blue, and I was obsessed with him until the age of 5 or 6. 

I even named him “The Blue Teddy Bear,” and once, while returning from the seaside with my family, I forgot him on the train. 

Because of this, my father started to run after the train while it was moving at a low speed and convinced the conductor to stop and give him the plush bear. 

After that, in early adolescence, my first boyfriend used to give me a lot of Teddy Bears and other plush toys to show his affection. 

I used to think that was very sweet until there was barely any room left in my bed and furniture due to too many plush toys. 

I am sure you have your own funny stories with teddy bears and many beautiful memories with your childhood Teddy Bear. 

Or, you may even have a Teddy Bear received from your significant other as a sign of affection.

If your partner gave you a Teddy Bear, he or she is definitely a hopeless romantic. 

As Teddy Bears are a huge part of our lives and everyone loves them, there even is an International Teddy Bear Day – on the 27th of October.

This is the best occasion to send sweet messages to those with whom you share an emotional connection or who have gifted you a TB.

With this occasion, I’ve also included a selection of sweet and romantic Teddy Bear Day Quotes or text messages from which you can choose.
