What's with the teddy bears?

Something I had never noticed before on the way down to Bateman's Bay - the number of teddy bears, big and small, including one gorilla and one crazy frog, attached to trees between the outskirts of Queanbeyan and Bungendore. Some looked like they'd been there a while; others looked new. So what's the story with the teddy bears? Does anyone know?

I'm curious!

Don't know the story but they have been there for many, many years.

I have heard that an older resident put them up so that the ghosts of the children that have been killed on the road have something to play with. I cannot verify whether or not this is true.
