Smokey Bear, who turns 70 years old Aug. 9, began his career in 1944 with the slogan, Only you can prevent forest fires.

Smokey's appeal was originally targeted toward children with his friendly teddy bear image and his appearance in comic strips. Today, Smokey has his own website and social media presence.

Smokey memorabilia runs the gamut, from stuffed animals to bobblehead dolls, comic books and posters. Share your photos of your memorabilia at
