Herman the Teddy

My significant cultural object is a teddy belonging to my mum It was given to her when she was born. His name is Herman and he came to mum in 1965. He is made of fabric with fur. The fur has fallen off over the years but there are still parts of teddy with fur. Herman is a honey/oaky colour and the eyes that are made of glass, the legs and arms are actually falling from the body. My mum played with him a lot.
He is special to me as it brings back childhood memories from my mum and she passed him on to me when I was little. Herman has lived as long as my mum has.
