The story of Ted, a bear belonging to Joyce Cowie

I was given Ted when I was newly born, 56 years ago. He came from a Glasgow toy shop. I remember him lying in my small bed beside me when I was little. As a child, whenever I was sad I’d wind him up and listen to the music of Brahms Lullaby coming from Ted’s tum.  Ted has always been with me: he has lived alongside me in Scotland, London and the USA. I have lovely memories of lying in bed hugging Ted, listening to lovely music putting me to sleep. He needed to visit the hospital because his musical mechanism was broken. Now he can sing me to sleep till the day I die!
