    Wow, I have a picture with this thing when I’m about 4 but never knew the context. My parents had no recollection. I did indeed live in Portland at the time (early 80s), and now I know I was not alone.

    Yes! The Cinnamon Bear used to come to Sunset Preschool in Portland, OR every year! We have a bunch of similar pictures in my family and each kid had a little felt cinnamon bear with googley eyes and a ribbon around its neck :-)

    Shouldn’t the mascot’s name be “Allergic-to-Cinnamon Bear”?

    Sausage Lips the bear.

    Look! it’s Botox the Bear. Remember kids that a little botulinum toxin in the lips never hurt anyone.

    Totally the Cinnamon Bear! He gave out these really awesome cookies – Once I went back by the store freight elevator to get a drink from the water fountain and Cinnamon Bear came out of the “Employees Only” door very quickly- it scared me so bad I screamed and spit water all over him.

    When a Ewok meets a Mogwai comin’ thro the rye . . . don’t feed them after midnight.

    It appears to be a Christmas portrait, so I wonder if that’s just a very bad Gizmo, from the movie “Gremlins.”

    Its the cinnamon bear!!! Anyone that grew up in Portland, OR in the late 70′s- mid 80′s saw this guy every Christmas season!!!

  12. Rick D says:

    Mother and kids appear to be very tired. Maybe they were too worn out to notice the critter behind them.

  13. Kootie says:

    the mother looks frazzled, but why those kids aren’t all screaming because of that thing behind them is beyond me…

    This is terrifying on a number of levels.
