From BearBrick creations to rebranding classic bears like Winnie the Pooh, the toy bear is ever present and forever popular with the young and young-at-heart collectors among us.

So whether it be a toy that never leaves its box because it's such a collectible, or if it's a plushy to love; here are the best, weirdest and coolest toy bears.

Implications - Appealing to those who are still children at heart, toy-inspired products like teddy bear headphones and bear lighting pieces are springing up all over the market. Companies are taking this idea of "child's play" and transforming these typical children's products, making them also interesting and useful for adults.
