Gund is not only the leading plush manufacturer in the United States, it's also the oldest so we'll let them speak for themselves:
"For more than a century, Gund has been creating Teddy Bears and other huggable toys recognized for their unique softness, quality, and design. A German immigrant named Adolph Gund founded the company in 1898, making Gund the oldest plush toy company in the United States. Pronounced a very American 'Guhnd' rather than a German 'Goond,' they were one of the first to design and produce Teddy Bears in the early 1900s.
"Gund is known worldwide for its top quality, soft and huggable plush designs. Award-winning Gund products appeal to all ages, from infants up, and are perfect for both play and collecting. The 104-year-old company is based in Edison, New Jersey, and distributes throughout the United States and Canada as well as in Europe, Japan, Australia and South America."
