Borodin The Bison Biter is a wild and grumpy, number one in an edition of ten, artist bear made from fluffy and tipped mohairs by Barbara Ann Bears
Borodin stands 11 inches( 28 cm) tall and is 8 inches (20 cm) sitting.
Borodin is one of older bears, he was made about twenty years ago, in the mid to late 1990s although we have spruced him up a bit to make sure he's in tip-top condition.
Borodin is a wild and primitive bear, a cave bear in his (faux) fur skin tabard, he's impolite and quite grumpy and has an annoying habit of biting bison, however, if you don't have bison this shouldn't be a problem, fortunately, he quite likes people, although it can be hard to tell. He comes with one of our old style labels which show he was the first of an edition of ten.
Borodin is mainly made from a gorgeous, medium length, wavy brown tipped ivory coloured mohair and his feet, the backs of his ears and the top of his head are made from a much longer and fluffier, dark brown mohair. Borodin has dark brown German wool felt paw pads which compliment his colouring perfectly.
Borodin has tiny pale brown glass eyes, a broad nose embroidered from individual threads to match his mohair (one of our first bears to feature this) and a resolutely grumpy expression. As he is one of our vintage bears he is stuffed almost entirely with polyester stuffing, he has a few plastic pellets in his tummy to make him a little more cuddly and more posable. As with all our bears Borodin is 5-way jointed.
Barbara has made Borodin a primitive (Flinstone/caveman style) vest in animal print faux fur.
Borodin is not a very sweet and friendly bear, he's a grumpy chap and not very good company. He has been a wanderer of the forests and moors and he might have many exciting tales to tell, you could try coaxing the stories from him, maybe honey, marmalade or whisky would help, we don't know, he just growls at us. He's a type of bear we haven't made for quite some time so we hope you like him... we hope someone likes him.
We will enclose photos with Borodin 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 Borodin is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
