Goober is back and better than ever! Through the years, this classic GUND teddy bear’s irresistibly cute design has comforted cuddlers of all ages with his soft plush, squishy, squeezable build, hunched pose, and earnest “waiting for a hug” expression. This beloved bear was also awarded the 2006 TOBY award for Teddy Bear of the Year and remains a favorite to this day. Goober has taken several different formats and sizes throughout the years, and even once considered himself quite the singer! GUND is proud to reintroduce this adorable bear for our Heritage Collection, with the same timelessly endearing design and even softer materials for the next generation of cuddler.
Goober sits upright at 11” tall, balanced by an extra-plump, squishy round belly and a bottom weighted with beans that help him sit upright and looking display-ready. His premium, luxuriously soft chocolate-and-vanilla two-tone plush is accented by a large, black plush nose and wide-eyed, curious-looking expression. Just like his best friend Snuffles, Goober’s hunched position means he looks at you with every hug! This goofy, eye-catching bear’s unique format is perfect for cuddlers and collectors of all generations, at play and on display. Like all of our teddy bears, Goober is surface-washable and appropriate for ages 1 and up. Do not machine-wash or use harsh chemical cleaners.
At the heart of GUND is our collection of stuffed animals and plush toys, including our vast array of cuddly teddy bears, bursting with unique personalities. Each plush is made with pride from super-soft, huggable materials that stay supple through the years. From established classic favorites to brand-new modern pals, there’s a GUND teddy bear plush buddy for everyone!
