Polar Bear – This is the biggest and heaviest of all the giants. Its head measures up to 18 inches (46 cm) across, making it bigger than a small adult man’s head. Polar bears have long necks so they can stay upright while hunting seals and other sea mammals. Their bodies are covered with thick hair that keeps them warm in frigid Arctic waters.
Koala Bear – In addition to being soft and cuddly, this bear is also one of the most adorable toys you’ll ever see. These stuffed toys have long snouts and ears that almost look like arms. They have a habit of eating only eucalyptus leaves.
Grizzly Bear – This stuffed animal is North America’s largest predator! They are usually brown or dark-colored, but they can also be black. They weigh up to 700 pounds (318 kg) and can stand 11 feet tall when they rear up on their hind legs!
Teddy Bear – Named after former U.S. president, Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, the teddy bear is one of the best-known stuffed toys in the world. The first teddy bear was crafted in 1902 as a gift for the president’s wife.
Types of giant teddy bears
Giant teddy bears come in a wide variety of colors and sizes. They all have oversized heads compared to their bodies. They’re made with a thick, soft, fuzzy material called mohair.
Many of these stuffed toys have jointed limbs and hard tails. Their heads are filled with hollow fiberfill, which makes them soft to the touch. Most of them have embroidered facial features.
