There is a lot to be said in favour of bears, and Scamps is always ready to say it!
Bears are particularly fine company when you need a hug. Always willing to oblige, they are not judgemental - and will always offer a sympathetic hug.
There is something comforting about cuddling a furry creature - as dog owners know. Imagine how much better it is to cuddle a sweet smelling bear - where the worst thing you'll encounter in their fur is a little dust!
While dogs require care and maintenance, a bear is the other extreme - happy to sit quietly until called upon. And ready to leap into action at a moment's notice.
You can spend a lot of money on some bear brands. But if you are looking for a play bear who is up for a bit of hugging then you really don't need to spend much at all.
Scamps claims to be a bear of uncertain age, who has achieved fame throughout the ages. The events below are a selection taken from the history which he has recited to a number of bears. These bears make no comment on the accuracy of the events described…
Scamps was a well known Roman Emperor, who led his armies to many great victories. He conquered a number of states and only the loss of some of the records of the time has prevented his fame from being more widespread.
After a period of quiet contemplation, Scamps returned to make his mark in the Middle Ages, steering his country through the vicissitudes of the time. Loved by his subjects, he eventually decided to relinquish his rule to return to his country estates.
In something of a faux pas, Scamps rose to the dizzy heights of Reichsmarschall SS. His Königstiger tank was the scourge of many a battlefield. After the fall of Berlin, he once again decided to retire from public life for a while.
