This page will from time to time have unconfirmed rumors posted to it. It will change SLOWLY, so don't bother looking in here too terribly often. As always these should be taken with a grain of salt, because rumors CAN'T be confirmed! Items about this specific site will have [NEWS] next to the date. Old inactive URLs will be retained for tracking reasons so if you hit something 404 compliant, that's the reason it's still here..

1.1.99 The rumors of the return of the show the Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin continue. This is been boosted by resent calls to Yes! Entertainment that both confirm and draw doubt on the status.

12.1.98 Teddy Ruxpin makes Dr. Toy's 100 Best Toy Products for 1998!
10.11.98 [NEWS] The Teddy Ruxpin FAQ's transition to Mindspring is now complete. Since the initial thought to move in July I'd been looking for a dead reliable ISP with 24x7 service and UNIX (Instead of WinNT). Starting in October first I made the move and slowly tranistioned all files to here. I also redesigned the lead-in page. Should you have any difficulties with viewing the site let me know. Please note that the old address is no longer valid. If you have links or bookmarks for the old site they will not work. :)
10.6.98 [NEWS] New Teddy Ruxpin pictures are here!! Many thanks to Jill Simpson for providing these to me! Visit her web site while you're at it. Jill has confirmed to me that the new version is not compatable with the original tape format. Old tapes will not work in it and new tapes will not work in the original full size versions.

Entertainment is going to be making a Teddy Ruxpin now. Check out the URL for more information. For those who don't know, YES! was started by the same person who started Worlds Of Wonder, Don Kingsborough.
3.15.98: I have heard once again that Teddy Ruxpin may be making a comeback. This came to me second hand from a good friend who had been emailed by a former Worlds Of Wonder writer. The whispers indicate that it MIGHT be an Actimate! I however personally doubt Microsoft is making a Teddy Ruxpin. (Read on to see that my opinion was borne out)
1.98: Heard another uncomfirmed rumor from a friend in CA. He'd been told by another collector that there would be a new TR at the Toy Expo this year. When my friend pressed the collector for more firm facts, she had none.
