Basil Polychuckle is a comical celebration of colourful happiness, a one of a kind, hand dyed mohair and faux fur artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Basil Polychuckle stands 6.5 inches/16 cm tall and is 5 inches/13 cm sitting, these measurements don't include his long fluffy red hair which adds a further 2.5 inches (6 cm).

Basil Polychuckle is a very colourful and happy little bear, he isn't one to take life too seriously, he's going to be happy as long as he's warm and there's a cake or marmalade sandwich in front of him. Basil, as his name suggests, is a bear of many chuckles, he'll chuckle watching TV, he'll chuckle if you tell him a joke, he'll chuckle if you tickled his toes (if he had toes), but most of all he'd chuckle if you tripped over a ruckle in the carpet, flinging a tray full of tea and marmalade sandwiches at the TV which then exploded, he'd find that hilarious! Then an hour later he'd wonder why the TV wasn't working and why there were no marmalade sandwiches in front of him...

Basil is made from several different fabrics, he's mostly a short, straight and dense mohair that Barbara has hand dyed in beautiful shades of yellow, green, lime, orange, red and blue. His tummy is a dense, soft pink faux fur with black rosettes (like a pink panther), his face is a long wispy white mohair with blue tipping, the top of his head is a long, wispy red mohair and the fronts of his ears and the underside of his tail are a long fluffy mohair that Barbara has hand dyed bright yellow, he's quite a colourful chap! Basil Polychuckle has hand dyed velvet paw pads which match his colours perfectly.

Basil Polychuckle has beautiful, hand painted eyes with eyelids, a splendid nose embroidered from individual threads to compliment his colouring and he has a huge, friendly smile. Basil is stuffed with polyester stuffing and glass beads which give him a little extra weight and make him a little more cuddly.

Basil Polychuckle is the happiest of teddy bears, his colour, character and his huge smile are overflowing with happiness. If you ever have dark days Basil will do his best to bring light into them, he'll sit down and listen to all your worries and problems and maybe some of them will just ebb away, that's what we hope anyway. Of course if you ever have a mishap he'll chuckle until he doesn't split his sides, his seams are much too strong for that!

We will enclose photos with Basil Polychuckle and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a Christmas card or 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.
