Herbie Hedge stands 10 inches/25 cm tall and is 8 inches/20 cm sitting.

Herbie Hedge is a calm and thoughtful teddy bear, he loves wildlife, he knows the names of all the wild flowers, butterflies and birds you might find in a dense tall hedgerow. So if you see him sitting quietly, seemingly absent-mindedly, he's probably thinking about hover flies landing on the flowers of the cow parsley, or weather it's a good year for the bluebells or primroses, or maybe if anyone is going to offer him a nice piece of cake...

Herbie Hedge is mainly made from a long, fluffy, distressed pale greyish-green mohair, it's a batik mohair although the differences in colour are almost imperceptible, but they are there, his right foot is slightly paler than his right shoulder for instance. His face the fronts of his ears and the underside of his tail are a long and fluffy very pale stony grey mohair. Herbie has hand-dyed velvet paw pads which coordinate with his colouring beautifully.

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

Herbie Hedge is a gently happy teddy bear, he is content to watch the world go by, daydreaming about fritillaries and skippers, bank voles and wood mice, cream cakes and fruit scones...

As with all our bears, Herbie Hedge is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
