Sporting a new outfit each year and the signature paw-print applique, Eckerd's "spokes-bear" has become an annual tradition since his debut in 1987. Humfrey has been a frequent and cherished guest at children's hospitals across the country, spreading his "heart-tuggle love" wherever he goes. He's the perfect gift for any kid or avid toy collector.
"Humfrey is a back-to-basics bear who works magic with his hugs," says Mary Beth Fox, Director of Sales Promotion / Local Store Marketing. "As the gift card that accompanies him explains, 'You don't have to be someone special, not famous, not important, not a star. Just be yourself 'cause like Santa, Humfrey loves you, just as you are!"
