Fandango, a one of a kind, mohair and faux fur artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price $252.00

Fandango is a colourful, fun-loving and comical, one of a kind artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in luxurious mohair and rather wild faux fur

Fandango stands 11.5 inches/29 cm tall and is 8 inches/20 cm sitting, these measurements don't include his plume of hair which adds another 4 inches/10cm.

If you're looking for a nice, sensible, traditional bear then Fandango is definitely not the bear for you, he doesn't even like the word 'sensible'. "What's the point of being sensible when you can be preposterous?" he'll say, adding "Being preposterous is far more fun!" at which point he might pursue you around the kitchen in a wild dance demanding you buy and play castanets, "How can I dance without castanets?!?" well it never really seems to bother him, he loves to dance.

Fandango is mostly made from a gorgeous multicoloured faux fur, it has patches of magenta, orange, yellow, blue and violet and his tummy and the top of his tail are a much longer faux fur in coordinating shades of pink and white. His face and the fronts of his ears are a long white mohair and on top of his head head he has a plume of long and fluffy magenta faux fur. Fandango's paw pads are each a different colour of hand dyed cotton velvet picked from his colouring; pink, yellow, orange and blue.

Fandango has beautiful hand painted glass eyes with eyelids, a wonderfully embroidered nose, sewn from individual threads to match his colouring and he has a huge beaming smile. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him more poseable, a little heavier and more cuddly.

Fandango is a wild, friendly, mischievous, loving and playful bear, he's basically a lot of fun to have around and you might find it hard to resist a smile every time you look at him and frankly who wants to resist smiling? We hope you love him as much as we do, and are ready to dance and possibly buy and play castanets, he'd like that:)
