    I’m part of the team working on Twittering Teddy. Thanks for the mention on MAKE – your site is a big inspiration for the entire build team.

    I wanted you to know the charity auction for Teddy is now live on eBay, so for anyone who doesn’t want to make one themselves, the can bid on the original :)
