Have you ever wondered what 30 years of love looks like? Well, take a look at the teddy bear on the left! Both bears were bought by a new mum in 1985: she gave one to her baby boy, and carefully put the other away in a cupboard for a future grandchild.

So the bear on the left has been cuddled within an inch of its life, taken on family holidays, dragged through the garden and maybe even used as a goalpost once or twice.

After the second teddy was handed over to the new baby by a very proud grandmother, a relative posted a picture of the bears side by side on photo-sharing websites Reddit and Imgur, where it’s since been viewed millions of times.

It’s certainly inspired us!
