<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> February<br /> 2012<br /> Volume 27,<br /> Number 1<br /> 16<br /> On the Cover: Helen Gleeson of Bare Cub Designs<br /> made little “Poppet” from blush mink, with a pink<br /> undertone and white tips. The cub has glass eyes<br /> with white accents, a handmade clay nose, and the<br /> face has been scissor sculpted to create fluffy cheeks.<br /> Gleeson said she named the 5-inch “Poppet” for the<br /> accessories she made for the bear — a popcorn box<br /> with little clay pieces of popcorn. Check out Gleeson's<br /> creative displays on page 16 and her tips on working<br /> with mink and scissor sculpting on page 32.<br /> Digital Extras<br /> 29 All Dressed Up (expanded)<br /> 35 Bears Around the World (expanded)<br /> TBR<br /> Teddy Bear Review<br /> Features<br /> 8 Teddies Reviewed 29<br /> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=1"> </a> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=2"> </a> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=3"> </a> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=4"> February 2012 </a> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=5"> </a> <a title="Teddy Bear Review Digital Edition - February 2012 page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/7d1e10a2?page=6"> Publisher's Den An exciting 2012 is in store!
