If you had to guess what would be the softest, most cuddly material to create a Christmas tree from, I don't know if many would think 'teddy bear'. Obviously a number of people have, and while I think the idea is a little bizarre, it's probably no more weird than some of the crazy Christmas trees we have already seen this month. There is no doubt that this is a playful idea, and a good one if you are in the business of retailing teddy bears.

While teddy bears seem a favourite Christmas toy symbol, Disney creations have also found themselves front and centre in the Christmas tree stakes. This huge tree (about 15 metres high) seen at London's St Pancras' station ( the same place which hosted the giant LEGO tree) was made entirely of stuffed toy versions of Disney animated characters.

Not quite as spectacular perhaps but equally cuddly are trees made from other children's favourites. I can't verify where these trees were made, but Hello Kitty might be a clue?
And just because teddy bears are cute, whether they are stacked as Christmas trees or not, I am adding this link for my blog followers who like to make teddy bears for donations to Red Cross, women's and children's refuges, charity fundraising or hospital groups and other charities.
I'll be back here tomorrow with some amazing Christmas trees to share with you.
