A teddy bear with P.J.s and a plastic heart that you put in through the velcro hole in its side. When you hugged the bear you could hear a heartbeat, you could turn up or down the volume. So if you fell asleep and rolled over onto heart-to-heart its heart would beat all night long and wear the batteries out.

My bear is now 20 years old and in excellant condition except for the ball on his nightcap has fallen off. His ticker still ticks and my 10 month old daughter likes to lay on him. He's the best toy ever made.

I got my teddy when I was 5, I'm now 19 and still have him. Unfortunately my house mate has a naughty dog decided to tear of his sleeping hat and his jarmy's, also ripping his head off. I would also like to no if anyone could point me in the direction of one so i can replace hit bits n get him re-stuffed and re-furred!

I received one from our house keeper when I was probably about 3 and now I'm 23. It had the pink outfit. But, i moved two years ago and a bunch of things of mine got lost and that was one of the things that was gone. It was my favorite and i still cant believe it's gone. The heart still worked too! Just had to change the batteries every so often.

I got my bear from my biological father on my 5th birthday. I am 27 this year. I just put my Teddy into the washing machine and afterwards into the dryer, and he still looks great. The heart works fine as well. I gave him to my daughter yesterday, she is 18 months. My cousin had the darker brown version, with blue PJs. Mine is light brown with pink jammies (like the picture). I still love my Teddy and I'm glad I kept him for my baby girl!!

I got mine literally the day I was born. We're 20 now...his heart has long been taken out thanks to a not-so-great friend back in the day. She poked a hole in the lining to his heart pocket and my Mom decided to take the heart out and sew up the pocket. But that doesn't matter...he's still the best stuffed animal/toy I ever got. I still sleep with him.

My friend Allison has a bear that she's had her whole life that looks a LOT like this, but no hat or jammies. Not sure if it has a place to insert a heart, but I know it has a small plastic knob on the back to turn it on. It doesn't sound like a heart though, more like a dull washing machine sound. Is this the same thing?

I got mine for my 6th birthday, named it T-heart and never let it go until my uncle threw it out the car window when I was 15. I slipped into a depression (i kno dramatic but true) until my mother gave me her baby version, that I have to this day. I'm 27, I still cant sleep without it. and when im sad I cry on my bear. Its really strange how these bears affected a generation. much love to the T's out there!!!!

I love my bear! I am 21 and I sleep with him every night. My grandma got him for me when I was little. She just passed away. I brought him to the funeral with me, which I am sure got a lot of weird looks. But I could not do it without him. the last time I heard his heart beat was at the funeral, it stopped after that. I even changed the batteries, which always worked before, no luck. I know it is some sort of sign, but I would really like to get it working again. Any idea where I could get it fixed?

I was born in Oct and got my Heart to Heart for my first Christmas. Teddy is in real rough shape compared to the pictures. He's falling apart. I'm 22 now and still have him. I took him EVERYWHERE with me and up until the year before last I still slept with him every night. My grandmother recently found a Baby Heart to Heart at a yard sale so Teddy got a heart transplant! I'm glad to know I am not the only one that was so attached to my bear! :)

My mom and dad gave me my heart to heart bear in 1988. I was to go in for major back surgery...the doctors took his heart beat and it calmed me down. Mom passed in January...that bear will always remind me of her...

I wanted this so bad for Christmas when I was 10 and it came out. My parents would not buy it. My mom said "stuffed animals are a waste of money. They don't do anything." Well I have 2 now. The first one I sleep with-my husband bought him from ebay and was delivered on my wedding day. The other is MINT in the original box on my shelf in my bedroom!!!

For those of you wanting to fix, clean or restuff your bear professionally: In Northern New Jersey there is a place I found called THE TEDDY BEAR HOSPITAL. This guy has this shop set up like a 1950's clinic. He repairs and refurbishes dolls. I took my bear there because my stupid cat started pulling the pink pom pom of my HtoH bears nightcap. I took the bear there and this guy fixed it really well. You cannot even tell it was damaged. I don't know if he has a website but if you really need me to dig out his number and store address email me at and put Heart to Heat Bear in the subject line...and I will get you the info. He can totally bring back to life a tattered old bear.

Can anyone tell me if they made a doll version of the bear? I have one with a shirt on that looks exactly like heart to heart bear's shirt but it says heart to heart la baby. It does have a beating heart as well. But, it is labeled Berjusa and not Chosun. It has blond hair and is supposed to look like a real baby. She doesn't have her pants or anything else. I believe it says 1987. Please help?

Oh wow. I actually have one of these cuties. I had no idea that it had a heart, though. I got mine from a thrift store because it was adorable. When I got home I realized there was a mysterious 'pocket' in the side, but nothing else. I dressed him up in some cute clothes and used the 'secret pocket' to hide little things in like a dollar or some little trinket. I just called him my "secret bear".

I bought my daughter a Heart to Heart Bear back in the 80's She has a daughter of her own that she gave hers to except she lost the beating heart. Does anyone know where I can buy just the heart?

My husband, before we were married, gave me my Heart to Heart bear in 1986. It was our first Christmas together. I was 26 then. I am now almost 55 and I still have it and cherish it and it still looks and works like new!

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.

I got my heart to heart bear for Xmas when I was 4, I'm now 30 and still snuggle up to her every night, she's called Hearty and she's travelled every where with me, her heart still works with new batts but tend not to put any in anymore, she'll be passed to my daughter eventually when I have one :)

For anyone looking for one of these, they sell them on ebay but they'll cost you about $60+shipping! I've had mine for SO long that I didn't even know it had a hat! He still stays in the bed with me and his heart still works, so soothing.

I received my heart to heart bear when I was 2 years old. I am now 29. I named him "bubump bear" because of the sound of his heartbeat. I had open heart surgery when I was 2 years old. He was a gift. I am now 36 weeks pregnant with my first child. "Bubump bear" will belong to my son when he's born.

I still have my bear. My sister & I both got one for Christmas one year. I have the tan bear with pink gown. My sister had the darker brown with blue gown. I don't know what happened to hers but mine is still in great condition except the heart stopped beating. If anyone knows how to fix the heart please let me know.

I'm french, I'm 29 and my bear is 28 years old. He's always with me and will always be. I'm still crying today because his heart don't work anymore... My boyfriend just opened it yeasterday and he's gonna to repair it. I hope that he will work again. I think this bear was the best present ever. In fact when I got children I think I will give them the same bear because you still can found it on internet but I can't give mine. Even if I'm all grown up, it's mine and I can't imagine giving him to anybody... I moved up a lot of time and he is the first thing I move and I'm always careful not to lost him. I think that if I have to start over a new life without any object he will be the only thing that I will kept. His name is nounours, he is my bear and I love him.

Looking for a replacement bear. My daughter was given one for Christmas in 1991. It never had a cap or sleep shirt. It was just a tan bear, with red on the four paws. It has a red heart on it's chest that says Heart to Heart and a Velcro compartment that the heart slid into. If anyone sees one or has one for sale please contact me at

My godmother bought me my heart to heart bear for Xmas in 1986 but she passed away a few days before being able to give it to me personally. So he is very special to me. I am 34 this month and still sleep with him. I'm glad I came across this as my husband thinks I'm too old to have a teddy bear. But after reading these posts I've seen so many who still sleep with their bears. I'm sure he's only jealous as he comes on every family holiday and even went on our honeymoon to Goa! I had a spare one once and the smaller version. Wish I'd have kept them both now as he's very worn.

I was given my heart to heart bear on the 12/11/1983 as a new born baby boy, 33 1/2 years later it still sits pride of place on my bed, although the fur is a little worn after all the travels it made as a kid heart still beats, would never let it go

Got my Heart to Heart Bear as a gift, before I was born, in November of '86. My wife teases me because he still sleeps in my bed to this day, and I find myself cuddling him a lot not even noticing it when going to sleep. He's missing the fuzz ball on his hat, his heart has long since been lost and he has no PJ's anymore, but man do I love that bear.

This warms my heart. I’m 35 and Mr. Gus is sitting over there! My dad got him for me when I was 5. I randomly decided to look for a replacement heart and this popped up. Enjoyed reading the comments and excited that others got the same joy.
