Crackerjack is a magnificent, charming and elegant, one of a kind, artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in luxurious hand-dyed fluffy mohair

Crackerjack is a large and cuddly teddy bear, he's 25 inches(64 cm) tall from his toes to his head and is 18 inches(46 cm) sitting from his bottom to his head, he has flexible knees and bent legs so he can't stand up, he just sits rather elegantly.

Crackerjack is a very handsome bear, with his dashing good looks and aristocratic and artistic bearing, he's a bear who could almost make you swoon and fall into his arms. He is a flamboyant and elegant bear, and unlike our other bears, with his bendy legs, allowing him to sit comfortably in a number of positions, and a separate, slightly wedge-shaped, jointed neck which means he can look slightly up or down (and straight ahead and sideways of course)... you can have hours of fun posing him. He is one of older designs, dating back to the mid-1990s, he was quite a change in direction and ambition for us. We don't make many bears like him nowadays, he is our most complicated patterns and takes a long time to make, but the results are always impressive.

Crackerjack is made from the most gorgeous and luxurious mohairs, mainly a long and fluffy, mohair that Barbara has hand-dyed in beautiful shades of brown, there's coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and honey, not only beautiful but also delicious! His face, the backs of his ears, his chest, feet, hands and the underside of his tail are a very, very long and fluffy blond mohair with a warmer beige backcloth. Crackerjack's velvet paw pads were dyed at the same time as his mohair and thus match it perfectly.

Crackerjack has large, beautiful hand painted glass eyes with eyelids, a wonderfully embroidered nose, sewn from individual threads to match his mohair and a rather reflective expression. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him more flexible, a little heavier and more cuddly.

Crackerjack is a very impressive bear, he has a calm presence and a gracious character, he is the sort of bear you can talk to on any subject and although you are unlikely to get a reply you will certainly feel that he has been listening and is mulling over what you said.

We will enclose photos with Crackerjack 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 Crackerjack is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
