Stripy Ted begins his life with golden stripes, two black buttons for eyes, and all his limbs intact. As Stripy Ted and his owner go on imaginative adventures, Stripy Ted gets a little beat up. His stripes fade with dirt and time. He loses a button and a few limbs, but Stripy Ted doesn't get discouraged. The owner’s mother even offers to mend him, but Stripy's owner likes him just as he is. Plus, they're too busy going on adventures! Turns out, it's actually easier to hold a bear that has fewer limbs, and the two can still snuggle in bed together like always.
