My name is “Gatti” and my name is very special.

In 1912 a huge ship was launched from Southampton named the Titanic. This ship was on its Maiden voyage, which is the first trip with fee paying passengers. Unfortunately, a few days into its journey it hit an iceburg, which fatally damaged the ship and it sunk, sadly taking all but a few of its passengers with it.

One passenger was a boy named Gaspare who unfortunately was killed when the ship sank, however his teddy survived.In 1992 Merrythought a bear manufacturer re-created this bear in honor of the sinking of the Titanic, it was to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the ship. Only 5000 of these bears were made, each one had yellow mohair and stood to be 8 inches tall.

I am Gatti Bear and although I am different in my looks to my predecessor I am also off on a very exciting journey, and I hope you will be very much part of it.

I would really feel cherished if you care for me for a couple of days or so. Keep me in a safe, dry and warm place and take some photographs of me. I will be so, so happy and my adventure will continue…

Please tell others about my time with you by completing this form. Remember to upload an image or two of me.
