Herbie is a sweet and beautifully coloured one of a kind teddy bear in hand dyed mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears
Herbie stands 10 inches/25 cm tall and is 7.5 inches/19 cm sitting.
Herbie is a very calm and relaxed teddy bear, he likes to sit and think, think about the normal teddy bear things, hugs and cuddles, marmalade sandwiches and herbs. He can tell you when to use oregano or basil, the merits of dill and tarragon and why coriander in pots always dies after three days, however he cannot tell you why there's a little sprig of parsley on the side of your dinner plate, that will always remain a mystery.
Herbie is made from the most gorgeous mohairs, mainly a fairly long tousled mohair hand-dyed in a subtle blend of natural colours, there are splashes of orange, violet, blue, rose, terracotta, grey and pale green. His tummy is a long, feathery cream mohair while his face is a long tousled cream mohair, you might not have noticed had we not told you, and the fronts of his ears and the underside of his tail are made from a longish distressed mohair hand dyed in blue with a little splash of pink, we like to keep small remnants of our mohair to use as ears and tails, it's all part of the fun of bearmaking. Herbie has hand dyed velvet paw pads which complement his colouring beautifully.
Herbie has beautiful hand painted glass eyes with eyelids, a pert nose embroidered with individual threads to match his mohair and an appealing smile. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him a little heavier and more cuddly.
Herbie is a gentle bear with a warm and loving personalities, he is on the whole quite restrained and thoughtful, but being a teddy bear he does love a cuddle and a cake, although not necessarily at the same time.
We will enclose photos with Herbie 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 Herbie is not a toy, he is an adult collectable and unsuitable for children under 14.
