Who remembers playing Monopoly as a kid – the arguments, forcing friends and family into bankruptcy and fighting to be the Scottie Dog? However, if you couldn’t be the dog there was no way you wanted to be the Old-Boot or the Iron. Well, now it appears the pieces are changing on the Monopoly board and some of the oldest pieces are being retired. The latest news has it that the Boot, Wheelbarrow and Thimble have all been retired from the latest version of Monopoly and they have been replaced by a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Penguin and a Rubber Ducky.

Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am great uncle to all the bears even though I am not a Renault Bear. I am a very old bear because I was bought for The Bearkeeper by his Grandparents on the day that he was born. That means I am currently 54 years old. I can remember many things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I am going to write about here on Jammy Toast. I will tell you of things that happened not just to The Bearkeeper and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else I can think of.

As we already know from his Great Uncle Bimbo Remembers column our Uncle Bimbo has a great memory of past events. However, what you may not know is he also has other gifts. One of those gifts is making up stories to help young bears get to sleep at night. Bimbo likes to make up ghost stories to frighten everyone into sleep. After one of Bimbo’s stories there is not a bear in the house who dares to get out of bed to ask for a drink of water. With Halloween at the end of the month we thought now would be a great time to start sharing some of the blood-curdling stories Bimbo has made up… or at least we think he has made them up – we may be wrong.

From time to time we introduce you to our bears and tell you the story of where they came from and what they get up to around the Bear Sanctuary. Telling the history of one of our bears can be a difficult task as many of them have been forced to forget traumatic events in their pasts. As some of you may be aware, Renault Bears have a built in defence mechanism whereby they forget any painful memories to save them from heartache. This means we do not know very much about many of our bears. However, today we are going to tell you the story of Everly.

We have been wondering lately about who is the most expensive Teddy Bear in the world. A few years ago Mr Bean’s Teddy Bear from the television series, sold for only a couple of hundred pounds. Many Bears sell through eBay for hundreds of pounds and every so often you hear of ones selling at auction for thousands of pounds – but which Bear would be the world’s most expensive?
