Forever Friends for New Babies


Forever Friends, New Baby Gifts, Soft cuddly bears






































Over ten years ago I was introduced to the cutest bear I've ever met - the Forever Friends bear. To me they were very special and always on top of my gifting list when it comes to choosing something special for someone special. I loved it that there is always a bear for a special occasion. We still kept the rainy days bear (it's so old the plastic from the wellies and hat has started to fall apart!), Horse Shoe lucky bear and graduation bear I gave hubby back in uni time, and our wedding couple bear as well that we used on our wedding day in the front of the car. How I wish I have bought a Forever Friends bear for my children as well when they were born! (I have no idea why I didn't)

This year, with our new Prince's birth, Forever Friends has launched a new Forever Friends baby range with a modern made-over bears to make them even cuter than before! They were so soft and cuddly both my kids who aren't babies anymore, just wanted to cuddle them all day long!

The range includes the iconic Forever Friends bear (rrp £10.00) that is really really soft it's almost addictive! I can hold it all day long as well! The bear is approximately 11 inches tall from head to toe, and would look so adorable in any nursery! The Little Bear Comforter (rrp £10.00) comes in a beautiful gift box, and for some reason Clay has set his eye on this bear over the others! He had been trying to get his hands on it since I started taking pictures, and refused to let go of it when he finally got it! I teased him by taking it away from him and he'd say "'Hey!', 'HEY!'" while taking it back. He's so funny sometimes!

The Baby's First Rattle (rrp £5.00) is equally soft and the Velcro strap was surprisingly soft too. I thought it wouldn't hold but it did. It makes a really gentle rattling sound that's perfect for tiny little ears, and should be loose enough for a first born as I had no problem strapping it on Clay. You can, of course, strap it on a pram or moses basket, etc as well.

The baby range comes in either pink or blue, and they are all adorable! They are affordable too and would make a lovely New Baby gift. It would be perfect if it comes in a neutral colour as well.

The new Forever Friends baby range continues to support Tommy's, a charity that funds medical research into still births, premature births and miscarriages, along with offering essential supports to the parents. You can buy their new range now from the Forever Friends website and any Hallmark stores.
