Russ Berrie history

Berrie created in 1964 his first line of manufactured novelty collectible items. He came up with a line of stuffed plush animals and dubbed them the "Fuzzy Wuzzies." In the following year, he supplemented the Fuzzy Wuzzie franchise with the "Bupkis Family," a group of soft, rubbery dolls.

On the basis of the popularity of Russ figurines and collectibles, sales for Russ Berrie & Co. continued to grow throughout the company's first two years. In 1966, Berrie formally incorporated his enterprise. Also that year, the company moved locations. In 1968, as the company shifted quarters again, moving to Elmwood Park, New Jersey, Berrie introduced Sillisculpts, small statues with messages inscribed on them, and these too became popular items.

Key to the company's success was the maintenance of a steady flow of ever-changing merchandise. Stores that sold Russ Berrie products needed a constant stream of seasonal, holiday, and everyday items.

In the early 1980s, the Berrie & Co. continued to expand. In a reorganization of company activities, the firm split its operations into two units: Plush & Stuff: stuffed animals and fabric dolls, and Gift/Expression, which was responsible for figurines, collectibles like picture frames, greeting cards, magnets, mugs, etc.

Russ Berrie bears

Russ BerrieBerrie, who was 69, founded Oakland-based Russ Berrie and Company, Inc. in 1963, and over the last 39 years built the $300 million company into one of the world's premier lifestyle gift companies, selling bears and other stuffed animals, trolls, oily jigglers, figurines, collectibles and more. In addition to his business accomplishments, Berrie devoted endless energy and resources to numerous charitable causes. His slogan was:

Make someone happy.

The company doesn't exist anymore. Read here more about Russ Berrie and his foundation.

Hi there - I am looking for a similar teddy to my childhood one. It was a polar bear, about 12” and on the tag it was called ‘OZZIE’ I think it was a Russ Berrie teddy (my dog chewed the label off!) I was wondering if you knew if each teddy was called a different name? I’ve found one which is almost identical but has a different name on the tag. Thanks so much
Hi, I saw to 'Ozzie' bears for sale on eBay: Ruzz Berrie Ozzie. Yes, they used a lot of different names, but they were also shared between different plush animals. So were also other animals named Ozzie.

Jen - November 23, 2020
There is a cat or bear I've had ever since I was a month old in the hospital with a cold (I stopped breathing twice), and I found another when I was 7 (someone lost it and the store person said I could have it since it had been there for a long time). I got them in 1992, and 1999 (though the second was probably previously owned and no longer in production). When I was a kid, I had removed the pink bow from both and twisted the arm of the first until it permanently kept its arm down. The closest thing I could find was the Russ Huggles, but that is a bear, with a short tail. I've never heard of a bear with a long tail, so I've long thought mine were kitties (Kitty and Kitty-Cat, I named them). The item number is 4992, and the patent number is 259. Both plushes have the same numbers. What is the actual name of the toy (Huggles with a long-tailed defect? Or something else?), and why is it so rare? I've never found anything close until now (Huggles, but again, those have short tails). The pink color is a little off since I took them out of storage and found them a bit moldy. (I'll try the freezing with baking soda in a bag trick to kill the mold, and then gently hand wash them.)
Thanks for your sharing your story. I'm afraid I don't have the answers to your questions, let's hope another visitor knows more. I'll forward any info I get! Have a great December :-)

Lela - August 25, 2019
Hi there I am hoping someone can help me. I found a "Montana" bear at a thrift store. I compared it to pics of other Montana bear and it is exactly the same except in one detail. I noticed that all of the bear have a small thick pole with a fish attached. My bear has a much different pole. It is longer and skinnier. It is made of metal painted a reddish brown. The handle part of the pole is made of wood and it almost looks hand carved. The reel is made of wood and has been hand painted. There is no fish attached.
Your bear has probably lost its original pole and got it replaced by a handmade one Lela. Take a look here: Russ Berrie Montana for more Montana bears so you can compare them with yours.

I am looking for: more modern looking Russ (Bear?) with really long legs compared to rest, possibly bendable. Paws are kind of a clunmp. The photo I have only shows part of the tag "..berz". It is mainly light brown, has a dark brown spot around his right eye and ear, tail dark brown too. Area around mouth and nose is white. Any idea? I fell in love with the pictured animal but simply can't find it anywhere.
Not sure... Did you try Russ Berrie bears?

My daughter likes Russ Berrie bears. She got her first Russ Berrie bear at a yard sale when she was 2 years old. My husband recently purchased four more Russ Berrie bears at a yard sale last week. But my daughter does not like the bear named Pudgy. Is the bear worth anything? Pudgy is beige coloured and has two soft leather strips for a tie. Item no. 4350. If someone can let me know if the bear is worth anything, it would be greatly appreciated.
Hi there, look on this page to find your Pudgy and values: Russ Berrie Pudgy.

I am looking for a Russ plush cat I bought in 1989 to give my Mom who was in Intensive care. She loved it. When she died we kept it with her mementoes. UNFORTUNATELY someone accidentally gave it away. Sis and I were heartbroken. I am pretty sure it was Russ Number 259, and then another number 7977. I found (and have) a photo of it I found on a retail web site -- sadly it had been SOLD...
Sorry to hear this... You can try looking on this page for a Russ Berrie 259.

I recently purchased a Russ Berrie and Company Rabbit / Bunny at an estate sale. It looks vintage, but I can't seem locate anything like it online. It's tan and white, with white fur between it's ears, black plastic eyes, red plastic nose and is holding a blue egg / ball. It was made in Korea and the tag reads (Pa Reg. No. 259, Maine No. 76, Mass. No. 200). Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
If it's an egg it could be a Russ Berrie easter rabbit. Check Google images if you can find yours.

In 1980 I Purchased the entire set of Little Woman Dolls produced by the Russ Berrie Company. These dolls have never been displayed or played with and are still in their original boxes. I have looked high and low to find more but to no avail. Even Ebay only has a scattered few here and there but without certificates or boxes. I cannot find any information about the dolls or if there worth has increased in any manner. I suspect at one time the Avon Company acquired the rights to the dolls but am not positive about that. Can someone please tell me if these dolls are out of circulation and if so, how many were made. They were manufactured in Taiwan R.O.C. and have the style numbers as 1626. 1627, 1628, and 1629. Thank you.
