— "If I had to pin it down, I'd say the brown classic teddy bear from Gund," said Andrew Lev, manager of Smart Kids Toys in Greenwich, Conn., about the best-selling plush item in his store. Twelve of 62 retailers TDmonthly spoke with in spring 2007 said Gund is among the most popular plush with their customers.
— According to retailers, sales of Gund plush across the country range from a few units per month to about 200 per month.
— “Great for kids and adults, Rigby's soft, long pile plush makes him the perfect bedtime companion, while his sophisticated cream and chocolate organza ribbon makes him a wonderful home décor piece,” pointed out Shallu Chhabra, marketing and licensing manager for Gund.
