Boyds Bear Baby Bedding
Boyds Bear Star Gazing Baby Bedding and Nursery Accessories
I first saw this Boyds Bear baby bedding set a few years ago and said that if I ever had a baby of my own that it was the one that I wanted. And I just won this set in an auction on Ebay for $25 plus shipping! When I got ready to decorate the nursery I thought that all I would have to do is log onto to the Boyds Bears website and send in my order....WRONG! There was not the first set of baby bedding on their website. Apparently the collection has been retired. Ebay
The only choices that I had was to have a set made or to buy used. Since I couldn't find any soft blue and yellow Boyds Bear fabric, making the baby bedding myself was impossible. So, I started to watch Ebay for a new set or a used set that might have been used at a grandmother's house.
It took several months, but I found this lot of used Boyds Bear baby bedding
for practically nothing! Along with the bedding and fitted crib sheets (with pictures of the sun, moon and stars on it), I got lots of matching accessories and lots of nursery accessories including a lamp that has a wooden bear sitting on a moon , a musical crib mobile with four miniature teddy bears on it and a sleepy bear nursery rug! PLUS I got a couple of handmade wall hangings and an authentic Boyds Bears Baby Mookins which is a cute bear dressed as a cow, sitting on a moon. It's a twist on the "cow jumped over the moon" nursery rhyme.
The only piece that appears to have ever been used is the fitted crib sheet. The crib quilt shows no wear whatsoever. The only thing that is not absolutely perfect is the musical wall art set. It's not damaged but it doesn't play music any more.
The only thing that I lack in completing my baby boy's nursery is curtain panels. I hope that one of the moms or dads that visit Unique Baby Gear Ideas
can tell me whether I should just buy some solid baby blue or yellow curtains or would fabric with a light blue background and tiny stars work with a Boyds Bear nursery theme since I can't find an exact match?
