Mary Meyer’s Polar Bear – Igloo Reversible Stuffed Toy
For Mary Meyer’s Christmas line in 1994 our
designer, Steven Meyer, Mary Meyer’s grandson,
created Frigi-Bear, which was a polar bear that could be turned inside-out and became an Igloo.
The Frigi-Bear was made of White plush-toy fabric and was 8” high with Black eyes and nose. There is an opening in the back of the bear through which you can turn the toy wrong-side-out. When turned, it becomes an igloo.
In a retail store Frigi-Bear sold for $15.98
Mary Meyer made a few different reversible toy designs, this one being the most creative.
The Polar Bear/Igloo was manufactured during the early to mid1990s.
Only a few thousand were made so it is not a common, everyday design. This Polar Bear/Igloo may be in some attics or toy boxes, but the toy is a rarity.
