I have some stuffed toys.The Tag Says Russ Berrie & Co.The other tag on it says Good Freinds and Neighbors.They come in characters like a fireman,teacher,baby,nurse.I can not find any information on any search engine.Only found one thing and it said called the company and they have no record of them.So I wonder if they are prototypes and not released to the public.If anyone has any information,or guesses I would Greatly appreciate it.

Unfortunately you are asking a question about a bear that is currently listed by you for auction and we are forbidden to discuss those items here.

Are there any dates on the tag? Do they have a typical printed tag ? If so they are likely just an older discontinued line - the prototypes I have seen usually have white almost like paper tags with handwritten information on them or some notation that they are prototypes. It's possible that these are lines that were made before current employees worked for the company - they are a huge company that has made many many bears over the years and I am sure no one person knows all of them. There are no reference books made for Gund or Ganz or Russ Berrie that I am aware of, and the last Boyds book came out in 2004, so it is really hard to find information on manufactured bears like that.
