Billy Calypso is a gentle, happy teddy bear, a beautifully blue one of a kind, hand-dyed mohair artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Billy Calypso stands 9 inches/23 cm tall and is 6.5 inches/16 cm sitting.

Billy Calypso is a calm, quietly reflective teddy bear, a bear who loves to sing along to himself about balmy days in Trinidad and 'Rum and Coca-Cola'. Billy is an exotic bear with a relaxed Caribbean air, not a bear to ever fret, but a bear who will tell you to relax, everything is going to be alright.

Billy Calypso is mainly made from a fluffy, sparse mohair that Barbara has hand dyed a beautiful sky blue, his tummy is a long blue, yellow and magenta faux fur with black spots and his face and the underside of his tail are a long and fluffy white mohair with blue tipping. On top of Billy's head and on the backs of his ears is a very long agua faux fur with tufts of warm beige. Billy has hand-dyed velvet paw pads which coordinate with his colouring beautifully.

Billy Calypso has beautiful hand painted eyes with eyelids, a nose embroidered from individual threads to complement his colouring and he has a huge, friendly smile. Billy is stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets which give him a little extra weight and make him a little more cuddly.

Billy Calypso is a very happy teddy bear, he has many tales to tell about his days sitting on a tropical quayside, he'll bring a splash of Caribbean colour to your home and he'll hope he can help you unwind after a hard day.
