A Teddy Bear is the ultimate symbol of childhood and love.
Creating a teddy bear nursery theme in your baby's room is a wonderful way to keep the room happy and adorable always.
Although these bears are found in every possible place and theme, the original brown bare bear is still the cutest and the most common gift to show your love.
Of course there is more variety today than ever before. If you have been researching about a bear nursery theme, you might have come across some adorable polar bear and koala bear art as well.
And you could spin the theme in those directions. But I still think the original teddy bear is way too cute to ignore.
Without further ado, let's get on with these yummy rooms I have dished up for you.
For the first time I had a tough decision to make in eliminating all the pieces that I wanted to put into the room.
Usually I would start by pointing out the big ticket items, but hey, did you see those curtain tie-backs? Are they adorable, or what? I would create a bear nursery theme just so I could use these in a room!
Phew. I couldn't wait to get that out. Okay. Now I'm good to go with the rest.
The crib bedding set is a good place to start. There are many designs to choose from. For girls, you might want to go with a Care Bear theme instead.
The room can go with two other big pieces in the theme. The Land of Nod is famous for it's Nod Chairs and this Bear themed Nod Chair fits the bill perfectly.
For the walls, there is an entire forest of bear wall decor and wall art to choose from. I had not heard of fabric wall decals before, though. They claim it to be of better quality than the average vinyl decals, and the texture has to be better too.
The bear rug with cute little teddies peeking out from all directions can provide your baby stimulus for hours. You can create a game of peek-a-boo with these cuties.
The bear picture frame is a whimsical touch and can become a personal keepsake for your little one someday.
If you were to ask me my favorite children's book characters of all time, Winnie the Pooh and friends would win it hands down. I love the stories, I love how each character is defined, all different but equally wonderful; and I absolutely LOVE Winnie the Pooh quotes.
If I could I would create an entire wall filled with his quotes alone (and perhaps another one with Dr. Seuss's quotes - but that's another day another theme).
I believe your toddler will appreciate this more than a baby. Can you see yourself sitting on this bed with your young toddler, covered with a pooh duvet, reading her a pooh book while she cuddles in thumb-in-mouth?
To digress a little, I can't stress enough the importance of a cuddled in book read with your children. Even though my kids are not so little anymore (the teen years are just a blink away), we still cuddle in as I read to them. It's my favorite time of the day.
Alternatively, hanging a Pooh blanket on one of the walls brings the same value to the room.
The Pooh and Friends Wallpaper would look great on the wall behind the bed. The subtle play in cream and grey is soothing and a great backdrop for colors around the room. The Pooh Rug helps bring the pooh bear nursery theme off the bed and into the rest of the room.
The Winnie the Pooh train set figurine is a classic and you might want to add to it over the years with other pieces of this iconic train set. The frame art is a more elegant presentation of the famous Winnie the Pooh quotes and such a marvelous piece of advice for young ones.
Carry the pooh bear nursery theme into the bathroom with Eeyore helping keep the shower curtain in place and Pooh peeking through the pop-up hamper. You can find many bath toys, towels and other accessories to complete the theme.
There are many ways to create a theme and it all comes down to your budget. As long as you know how far you can stretch your dollar, you will be able to come up with something totally unique, totally you.
