Teddy Robinson belongs to Deborah, a little girl about 6 years old. The book brings to life Teddy Robinson and his adventures with Deborah. Originally published in the 1950's before t.v. and computers were the main amusements, it tells lovely simple stories such as Teddy Robinson Keeps House. Here he stays home whilst they go out and waits for the grocery boy to come, feeling very proud that he has guarded the shopping which is left on the back doorstep! It is excellent as a bed-time story book, my 3 year old son adores it and often asks if he can "Keep House, just like Teddy Robinson". I like the make-believe factor which is portrayed and sometimes it takes me back to being a little girl and playing with my own Teddy Bear! A charming book with beautifully written stories.

I purchased this to read to my five year-old son. He absolutely loves every story and there's not a whiff of his regarding it as too babyish, which I had feared. I had these stories myself in two Puffin paperbacks when I was small and wanted to share the magic with him. The stories are simple but inventive, amusing (downright funny in some places) and quite often a little surprising, i.e. not as predictable as they seem when you begin. The only GLARING omission, which I thought was included when I purchased just before Christmas, is the story 'Teddy Robinson meets Father Christmas'. This is quite the most magical Christmas Eve story and why on earth it's not included in this treasury of the best stories, is beyond me (particularly as the book it was part of: 'About Teddy Robinson' is out of print). I so wanted to read the Christmas story to my son on Christmas Eve, but I'll have to search out a used copy of the book it was published in in the 70's in readiness for next year...Overall, though - wonderful stuff!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic trip down memory lane 3 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When I was a child (some 30+ years ago) I vividly remember having an audio cassette of Teddy Robinson stories and it was all I could listen to. I remember my favourite being "Teddy Robinson is Brave". I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw the book on Amazon and now I have my own 3 year old son I simply had to buy it. It's arrived today and I am not disappointed. It's a lovely hardback edition with some pencil drawings in and the stories are really heartwarming. I hope my son has the same happy memories of Teddy Robinson when he grows up!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Teddy Robinson Storybook 20 Sep 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely delightful collection of stories about a little girl and her teddy bear. I have been reading this at bedtime to my five year old daughter and she loves the stories (which take a little over ten minutes to read aloud). The individual stories are simple - for example, Teddy Robinson going to the toy shop with Deborah and her mother and interacting with the other toys, as well as feeling slightly jealous about the new toy Deborah chooses. Teddy is, in effect, a small child making sense of his world and his emotions and so, although the books is set in another time, it is still highly relevant to children today. If you are looking for a nice collection of read aloud bedtime stories for a child of about 3-6, this would be a lovely, gentle choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 2 Sep 2012
When I was a child, I adored the Teddy Robinson stories. I used to borrow the books from the library, so it is delightful to be able to have them again, freshly produced. The tales are charming and Teddy Robinson himself, utterly adorable. Even as an adult, I still find the adventures of Deborah and her teddy, charming and a delight to read. I would recommend this volume for any parent with a young child, also to encourage children to read for themselves. Just lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bed time crowd pleaser 23 Aug 2012
By Clare
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I remember this book from when I was a child. I borrowed a copy from the library to read to our preschoolers on a long car journey. They loved it. I was thrilled to find it available on amazon two years later. Our five year old laughs until he hurts when Deborah accuses her teddy bear, Teddy Robinson, of being a "little ex-and-shoff",(that's excited and showing off) at his bithday party. This is a lovely read aloud story full of gentle, funny tales about a little girl and her teddy bear. Our seven year old is proudly reading this as a "chapter" book. When I have read the allocated chapter, I find the two boys re reading the story and then enacting some of the funnier moments with their own soft toys. I couldn't have asked for more from a children's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and loving traditional bedtime stories 15 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These stories feature Deborah's bear Teddy Robinson, who is introduced to us via his first adventure, when he is accidentally left out all night to sleep under the stars.There he composes little songs which please small children however tunelesly you try and sing them

The writing is gentle and follows dear Teddy R through a number of experiences including a birthday party and a visit to hospital, things your child might experience.

There are few illustrations and these are simple line drawings, so this is suitable to introduce to a child when he or she can follow a story without reference to a lot of pictures. This will vary widely between children but the 4 to 7 age group is peak Teddy R time.
Teddy R is all boy but on special occasions he wears a purple dress so if you have a thing about gender issues maybe you will not care for this!! Joking aside this is delightful reading for parent and child. We wore our copy out with love.
