  • Christmas 2017 countdown has begun. Most people reveal their displays the day after Thanksgiving. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

Value of TPI #4834 Santa with Teddy Bear?

Recommended Posts

There is no set value on that one, it does show up occasionally but there is not enough information available on the selling history of it to set a value.  At this time it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.  The picture on blow-molded.com is of the one in our collection we got both the Santa with Teddy and Giant Santa with Gift many years ago.

Can't seem to find any ebay history online, any idea what his value would be?

I'll give you some speculation since we have no hard numbers to go by.  I'd say the value could range anywhere from 10 bucks (yard sale) to $40 or $50 dollars at an Estate sale or second hand store.  At a higher end antique store or eBay it could be more.  (Now that I've typed this it really doesn't seem that helpful.)

I saw some blowmolds at an Estate sale recently and the prices were crazy high.  All the molds had the owner's name and address written in permanent marker all over the back.  The giant snowman was $95.  The giant Santa way over $100.  There were 2 of the snowmen in green tuxedo coats that were $45.
