With a fin and tail decked out in tartan, this shark is ready for prep school. Don't let the big bite fool you, he's just as soft and cuddly as a teddy bear. There are teddy bears, and then there are Gund teddy bears. Founded by German immigrant Adolph Gund in 1898, the company has gained worldwide recognition for its wonderfully soft, delightfully designed plush toys. Each of its creations is a tangible manifestation of a hug and a cuddle. It’s little wonder, then, that while a child will keep his first Gund for life, it’s most likely not going to be his last Gund.
