The movie Ted answers an age-old question that you probably never asked: what happens to a magically animated teddy bear when its owner, an eight-year-old boy, grows up. does the teddy bear grow up too, or does he stay the same? And if he does grow up, how does he act?
Spoiler alert! if you have not seen the movie but plan to, you should stop reading this post now. To get you in the mood, here is the trailer for the movie:
The bromance/bear-mance comedy Ted follows the trials and tribulations of a 35-year-old man who owns a 30-something teddy bear called Ted. This is not your child’s cute teddy anymore, and the movie has a well deserved R rating. think of Ted as more of the foul-mouthed, vulgar friend your parents told you to keep away from. The movie has humor, romance, and even a creepy bad guy.
During the course of the movie, Ted is abducted by a mean-spirited father and son team that wants the living teddy bear. using moves that would make Flash Gordon proud, Ted manages to escape, and is subsequently chased through Fenway Park by the villains. in a climactic scene, Ted is ripped in half and his body falls into the baseball diamond, his stuffing littering the stadium field. The audience wonders, “Can he be fixed?”
Which brings us to today’s remarkable find, Teds Screen used Torn Body and Lori’s Hero Sewing Kit and Needle:
This is the actual torn teddy bear used in the movie. The listing describes the condition of the teddy bear:
“This is the screen used, hero Ted that was torn in half during the film and Lori’s (Mila Kunis) screen used sewing kit that was used to repair Ted. Note, if you want to know how Ted was torn, you will need to watch the film to find out.
This set was received from Media Rights Capital comes with an Official Studio Certificate of Authenticity.”
It’s a good thing there is a certificate of authenticity with this item. After all, you wouldn’t want to be duped into buying any old ripped-in-half Ted.
But if the bidding price is too rich for your blood, you’ll be happy to know we have also found a pristine, not screen-used Ted teddy bear for sale on eBay. take a look at what pops up when you search for the 24-Inch R-Rated Talking Plush Teddy Bear:
Just think, you could have an undamaged, foul-mouthed bear! if you want to see what the bear has to say, click on the photo, above (or here), find one of the listings, and read the description. Let’s just say it gives you a good idea of what the movie is like.
If you do eventually decide to buy one of these Ted teddy bears, just remember to wish upon a falling star to bring it to life. It is a Hollywood movie, after all.
