Me to You or Tatty Teddy bears from Carte Blanche Greetings include an adorable range of teddy bears, most of which make great gifts and collectibles. While the majority of Me to You Bears are not especially rare, Carte Blanche Greetings does sell multiple limited edition bears that only include a few thousand bears in each range. Learning about limited edition Tatty Teddy bears allows you to make better purchase decisions to get your collection started.
Limited Edition Me to You Bear Run Number
Many limited edition Me to You Bears come in small production runs. For example, the Swimmer Bear comes from a limited production run of just 3,000 bears. The number in the production run affects the availability, value, and collectability of the bears in question. All limited edition Me to You Bears include a production number, such as 4492/5004, which, in this case, would mean that the bear is number 4492 out of just 5004 bears in the line.
Generation of the Me to You Bears
Carte Blanche Greetings issued several generations of Me to You Bears. The first generation includes 2000 to 2003 bears. The second generation Tatty Teddy ran from 2003 to 2009, and features bears with finer fur than that of the original Me to You Bears. The third generation features teddy bears with longer fur and a plastic rather than a fabric nose. Older Tatty Teddy bears are more valuable, and usually more collectible, because they are rarer and harder to find than newer generation bears are.
Size of the Limited Edition Me to You Bears
Me to You Bears come in various sizes, from tiny 5 centimetres to large 80-centimetre bears. The limited edition bears come in all of these sizes, although medium and small size bears are the most common. Some limited edition Tatty Teddy bears includes scenery. For example, the special edition Gone Camping bear features a scene with a tent, and the Special Moments bears feature a bridge, both of which work for a large shelf or collection space.
