Basil, an appealingly wild and friendly one of a kind artist teddy bear in stunning fluffy mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears

Basil stands 11.5 inches (29cm) tall and is 8.5 inches (22 cm) sitting.

Basil is a sweet, handsome bear, a bear who loves to be hugged and cuddled. He's a gentle soul who loves people but would very much like 'his' people to take him out climbing trees, raiding bees nests for honey in the highest branches and generally being a bit 'beary', however he says that a few honey sandwiches and cake is a very good substitute for authentic wild honey, which is a relief.

Basil is mostly made from a long and wispy, rich chocolate brown German mohair, his tummy and the underside of his tail are a very dense and soft cream faux fur and his face and the fronts of his ears are a very long and fluffy white mohair. Basil has brown German wool felt paw pads which complement his mohair perfectly...rich chocolate and vanilla ice cream would pretty much sum up his delicious colouring.

Basil has beautiful glass eyes, hand painted to match his colouring, with eyelids, a splendid, neatly embroidered nose that captures the colours of his eyes and mohair and a warm and jovial smile. Basil is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing making him a little more cuddly and a little heavier.

Basil is a warm and amicable fellow, he loves to sit around an open fire, telling anyone who'll listen about the many trees he would have climbed had anyone bothered to take him to a forest, the walks he could have taken over mountains and moorland and how much he would like a lovely piece of cake if it isn't too much trouble.


We will enclose photos with Basil and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.

As with all our bears, Basil is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
