Teddy Bear's Picnic

Teddy Bear's Picnic has been a favorite local roadside attraction since the 1980s. Locals often refer to it as "Toyland of Waggoners Gap" or just "Toyland," which is what the owner accepts it being called. Nearly every day people stop and take photos, either getting out of the car or driving past slowly. Ray is a long time family friend and my old neighbor. He likes when people drop off the big stuffed animals for him to put in the yard.

Private Home with dozens of large teddy bears on farm equipment and children's toys. Creepy and bizarre. About 2 acres.

We admit we hastily rejected this until noticing one big teddy bear painted with bullet wounds in his head.
