Vintage Very Much Loved Stuffied Toys

From what I've read and seen I think these toys are from the 1940's. The love bestowed on these little animals shows up in the fur-less fabric bodies, especially on Teddy Bears. They all seem very happy to sit on shelves near each other. The little bodies have a 'crunchie' sound when gently squeezed - sawdust. Lots of little 'repair stitches'. I think the Bull Dog is stuffed with straw.
