Limited Edition Louis Vuitton Teddy Bear

Lost, forgotten, stolen or just given away by a Louis Vuitton VIP, this LV monogrammed limited edition teddy bear is now a collector’s item. Just 500 of these teddy bears were made by Louis Vuitton to offer to their top 500 VIPs during the fall/winter 2004-05 men’s runway collection, worldwide. According to NYC vendor Toy Tokyo, this is the only teddy bear Louis Vuitton ever made in their 150 year history.

The beige and brown LV monogrammed bear wears a natural cowhide leather collar around his neck with a tag that say “EDITION LIMITEE No064 LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in France”. The tag therefore certifies this cute bear as a bona fide one-of-a-kind No. 064 out of 500. The bear bears movable arms and legs, and stands tall at 18 inches, and 14 inches when sitting.

A perfect gift for an eternal Louis Vuitton fashionista as a collector’s item or even for a child. Here’s hoping you are the lucky one to cough up Toy Tokyo’s $9,000 asking price for this teddy bear.
