Does your family have history at Ellis Island? More than 12 million people passed through Ellis Island on their way to a new life in America, including nine year old Gertrude Schneider who came from Switzerland and brought her beloved stuffed bear. Ms. Schneider donated her pajama-clad bear to the Ellis Island Museum many years after she was settled in her new home, sharing that she loved that bear more than anything else she brought with her.
Inspired by Gertrude's loyal companion, this plush bear would love to immigrate to your home. Classic wooden button eyes and a sewn-on nose offer a nod to yesteryear, while movable limbs and removable striped pajamas offer myriad opportunity for imagination and play for a new generation. Help resettle this cuddly bear and pursue the American dream together.
