Picture of Teddy Bear USB Flash Drive (USBear?)
Plain old flash drives are boring. Which is why I decided to sacrifice a teddy bear and make a more interesting one. When put together, it looks like your average teddy bear. Pop off the head, stick it in your computer, and you have a really funny data-storing USBear.

I first saw this wonderful idea here  and decided I would try my hand at making it. You can even buy these now. But making it is more fun. And less expensive.

Step 1: Choose Your Victims and Gather Your Materials

Picture of Choose Your Victims and Gather Your Materials
I used an old teddy bear and a 4Gb flash drive. Make sure that the bear is small enough to be practical and that the flash drive is large enough to be practical and has a cap.

You will need:

1 Teddy Bear
1 Flash drive with cap
Hot Glue Gun & Glue
Sewing Needle
Thread (color of bear)
Sewing scissors

Step 2: Decapitate

Take a pair of sewing scissors and chop off it's head. Throw away any beads that spill out. There should be fluff in the head and top part of the body, so you're somewhat safe as far as beads go.

Step 3: Glue, Sew, and Glue Some More (Head)

First, put a little glue either on the bottom of the cap (closed side) or in the hole in the head where it will go. Then put the cap in your bear's head, open side exposed. It should stay there fairly well as it will now be glued to the stuffing.

Next, take your needle and your thread and sew up the sides of the neck, leaving only enough room for the cap in the middle. Then, seal the edges around the flash drive with some glue. Be generous with your glue, it keeps the whole thing together.

Haha I bet some of the girls will squeal when I go to rip a teddy bear's head off and then plug his body into my laptop to gather vital data.

I have a morbid sense of humor. When I finished mine I noticed that the USB could still be seen. So I tied a small hangman's noose and glued it to his body and a dot on the back part of his head, so now the head is on a sort of hinge. I think it is rather funny.
