I so had one of these. Back when cell phones were starting to get relatively mainstream, I used to take his voicebox out and talk to it in public like i was on the phone. Of course, I had to look stupid, but it was worth it. I totally felt cool.

I had the best AG bear ever - he was brown and i took him everywhere including a jumble sale where i put him down and some stupid woman sold him as jumble - my aunty got me another one but he was a white one and didnt make the same noise! I still miss him!

I really don't think this is the bear I had, but I am looking all over for the one I had and wondered if anyone can remember him. He was a tan colored teddy, about the size of teddy ruxpin and he had a green jumpsuit/shirt that was connected to his body. I cannot remember the name of him and I REALLY would love to find him! Thanks!!

I still have my AG bear and love him. I have a grey one with a red coat. It is so cute; of course all my friends make fun of me for having a bear that "doesn't really talk to you" but I always thought he was a cool bear.

I had the grey/red coat one as well and I have to admit, despite how stupid this sounds, but I never realized that it talked back to you. I always thought it just made noise at random, or maybe that it talked when you shook it, I don't really remember. I don't remember when I got it- maybe someone gave it to me as a kid without telling me how it worked.

I have had my Grey AG Bear since the Christmas of 1985, yes I still sleep with him EVERY night. Even on my HONEYMOON!!!!! He has been all over the world with me, I cannot sleep a night with ou him. I wish i could have another Grey AG Bear, I didn't like the Brown ones as much. I even have the small version too!

I loved my A.G. Bear. I always did think AG was more inviting and fun than Teddy Ruxpin had been. I decided that A.G. was short for Algernon Gordon. Algernon came from an old rhyme, "Algie went a-walking, Algie met a bear. The bear had a bulge. The bulge was Algie." and Gordon because that was one of the few male G names that wasn't in use by my mother's side of the family.

I LOVED my A.G. Bear. I got him for Christmas in 1985 when I was 8, brown with blue coat. He had a tiny hole in him, so I remember my aunt sitting at the Christmas dinner table performing surgery. I can't find my original, but found the same 1985 version and same color on ebay. He's such a sweetie! It was so neat to read other's memories of their AG Bears. Keep 'em comin'! And to Johanna up there, I think you may be thinking of Corduroy. He was a brown bear with a green jumpsuit, I think.

OMG...I tried to explain this bear to everyone, but no one knew what bear I was talking about!!! I had the grey bear with the red coat. I thought the noise he made was weird, so I used to take the voice box out of his back and keep my candy stash in there. I thought that was a clever little zipper pouch he had. My parents never had a clue he hid my treats!!!

Oh my goodness. I am so glad that I'm not the only one. I got my AG (grey with a red shirt) in 1989 when my younger cousin was born. She got the brown/blue one, and I got my AG. We used to switch shirts between them, but somehow we always got them back. I still sleep with my AG almost every night. He went to college with me, and moved into my apt with me when i first moved. (on trips, I stash my cell phone in his pocket and use him for a pillow. that way, if my phone rings, i feel it) Oh, and I don't remember mine ever having a voice, though my mom says he did. My brother and I always stashed stuff in him. My AG (it's been years since he had a name other than AG...Alistair something, I think it was...) is nearly 20 years old...

I got my AG baby bear when I was 3 years old. I took him with me EVERYWHERE!!! He's so worn out it's sad. I still keep him on my bed always though. I'm expecting a child so I got one off of ebay for the baby. :) I hope him/her loves this bear as much as I did. My fiance thinks i'm crazy I think.

I still have my ag bear! I got him for christmas in 84 when i was 4! His talker box is broken because when my nephew was born in 95 he got ahold of ag when he was around 2. I am still looking for a replacement talker box so ag can talk to me again!

I have my AG with me right now. He rocks and he talks to me and my wife doesn't believe me. I have a question though: my AG has a mouth but all the pictures I see online show no mouth. Did I get a later model? My AG has a tongue and mouth. He's been with me for around 20-years and is in rough shape but still he's mine. And what does AG stand for?

OMG I love how everyone still has their AG Bear!!! I too still have mine. Even though I don't sleep with him every night anymore (my husband thinks it's weird when I do! lol) he is still on my nightstand. I must keep him near by! He too has traveled the world ( I took him on my first trip to France) =) Mine was the brown one with the blue shirt. But my AG bear went through an identity crisis He spent probably a decade as Angela Bear wear frilly baby doll dresses! lol ;) I always thought AG stood for A Great Bear... Because he IS a GREAT bear!!! =)

I LOVE my AG Bear! I never knew so many people love him as dearly and fondly as I do. Wow. My little brown bear with the blue shirt has been with me since I was 5. He went to college with me and continues to tag along to whatever city I happen to be calling home and sometimes he comes on vacation too). In fact, he's hanging out with me right now--- AG says, "hi!"...OoWooorawr arrr!! :) PS. I also thought "AG" stood for "A Great" Bear!

I got my AG bear for Xmas 1985 - he's a brown one with a blue jacket. My mum took the voice box out a few years later and said he had laryngitis! I then lost him when I was 8 and Tomy, who I think made them in the UK, sent me a replacement. Then I found the original in my Wendy House! I've kept the new one and the old one is now totally flat, minus a voice box and minus a nose and mouth. It's great to compare them and I still sleep with my old one every night. I thought it stood for ' A Good Bear!'

I'm a rabid teddy bear collector who got hooked by way of AG. I got one of the rereleased versions and fell in love. The rest is history. Sadly I no longer have my two AGs. I had the reissued brown one and an original grey one I got off Ebay. I miss them so much. Best toy of the 80s right here!

Unfortunately recently her little girl decided to play with him and left him out and the dog chewed his nose off, she is absolutely devastated would anyone know where I might get a replacement please.

Patchwork Bear AKA The Bear - September 07, 2009 - Report this comment
Yep, AG stands for Almost Grown. Of course "A Great Bear" would also be a good description. As I said earler AG started a teddy bear obsession that competed with my dog obsession for the longest time. I've even posted memories elsewhere on the site under the name Weredog ( usually under dog toylines like Pound Puppies ). But ultimately the bears won out and the dog obsession is no more. AG is to blame for this. But I'm grateful. Teddy Bears just seem to have so much more personality than plush dogs. I've heard AG described as a Teddy Ruxpin knockoff, but as much as I love Teddy, I think AG is the better bear because he actually responds to you.

I bought AG for my son, as an Easter present my son was one years old. AG when he 1st got him, he did not like the sound he made; but got used to it. AG has been loved soooo much. He went every where he went in the garden, bathroom, he would sit outside the toilet and wait for him to come out, at the dinner table, in the car to friends houses, or accompany him to school but would have to stay in the car; till his return. WERE WE in trouble if we forgot him at friends, or family's houses, he would not sleep without him. Which meant we would have to go back to collect him even if it was really late. He was Quinn's best friend he would cry, and share his tears, we would have to kiss him; when we said goodnight to Quinn or good-morning. Quinn will be twenty-three; next week AG has pride of place on his bed, and No One is allowed to touch AG but Quinn. Boy to Man & his bear.

How wonderful to find soo many others like me. I got my grey a.g when I was 5, in 1985. I am now 32 and can't sleep a night without him. Of course he is worse for the wear, no talk box, no red shirt, several rips, crooked sewn back on smile and nose and 2 mismatched button eyes. But along with all of that are my tears that I would always wipe on his ears. And 27 years of memories. I have tried repairing him before, but he always seems more comfortable when the stitches give and the stuffing starts falling back out. I have even asked to be buried with my a.g. This little guy has been one of the most important things in my life.

Someone special gave me a gray AG Bear. He wore a blue top. When my children were born I passed him on to them. The voicebox went missing and when having a clear out he was disposed of.

I remember I asked for a Teddyruxpin for Christmas and ended up with a grey A.G. Bear with a red coat instead. At first I was disappointed but I grew to love him really quickly and he became my best friend. I decided that A.G. stood for Anthony Greg! A.G. used to go everywhere with me and was my ultimate confidant and cuddle buddy. I hope I can find another grey one just like him for myself and maybe even one for my little girl. I really miss my beloved Anthony Greg aka A.G.Bear.

I bought my son AG Bear when he was a little boy. He loved it and thought AG was really talking back to him. His daughter who is 7 years old was given AG - and she loves him. But now her brother who is almost three wants one -- so I am checking the internet. :) I thought AG was more creative than the others that came out later --- because children could use their imagination. Toys today don't allow them to do that...

I took my AG bear on a road trip with my dad and brother when I was little. I loved it so much. My dad got so pissed off that it was constantly mwah mwahing whenever we spoke in the car so he grabbed it from me, pulled the batteries out, and threw them right out the window. Good memories.

I got my AG for Christmas in 1985. I was 2 years old and was able to grow up with him, and he was and still is my best friend! I have the grey with red coat, but his fur is flat, he's missing stuffing and the fabric has been worn off his nose from eskimo kisses. Last year I got a mint AG still in the box! Like some mad scientist, I switched the voice boxes. The one the new AG came with was an angry and bitter sounding bear. I swear the voice box of my childhood bear was sweeter and more musical with his responses. I felt like the new one was cussing me out! My daughter has the well loved AG with the new voice, but sometimes we trade It's soo much fun to make them talk to each other :)

Mum bought our daughter AG when she graduated from high school in 1986. Our Jane loved stuffed bears! Jane moved to Texas for work, and AG stayed with us Now, AG "talks" spontaneously most of the day without promting from anyone! It does bother my wife when he "talks " at 3AM however Great fun. We love him
