Bears, Hares and Friends-Oh My!

As a new collector of Boyds bears, I was very curious about the mysterious "CVG" I kept coming across in various auctions. I went out and got myself a copy of CheckerBee's Collector's Value Guide. And I am glad I did! It is chock full of info about almost all the Boyds Bears, etc. that have been "put up for adoption." I just wish that the pictures were a little bigger and complete. There a few too many blank spots giving neither a picture nor any info. Someone should send in photos of the ones missing so the author could include them in future editions. I do not recall seeing an address for such.I also wish there were a quick way to reference "pairs", "trios" since everything is listed alphabetically by first letter within an animal it is not always obvious to the novice that a character may have a friend or relative. But having written all that, it is a wonderful guide with a nice look, quality glossy paper, interesting tidbits and places to write down notes, etc. It is a VALUE guide not a pure reference but it seems to be the best one out there and the one which is referred to the most. I may not buy it every year, the Boyds catalogues are great!, but maybe every two or three just to keep relatively current.


I have been a collector of Boyds Bears and Figurines for the past 2 yrs, I found the book to be quite informative. Easy to follow, due to the layout and individual sections, Bottom of each page has it's own info area for you to fill out with each purchase. I see this book to be a companion for a long time to come. Would also recommend it to any person as a source of information about Boyds Bears. Looking forward to adding even more to my Boyds book collection.
