This Doodle Bear toy was manufactured circa 1994 by Tyco Industries. The bear is pink with purple heart printed material lining the bottom of the feet and inside of the ears. There are two markers in the jeans pocket, one blue and one purple. The markings from the donor are still present on the bear. This Doodle Bear is significant because it was a highly sought after toy for children in the 1990s. This toy was used by the donor, Abigail Gautreau, when she was a child.
