Johann Sebastian a one of a kind, artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price £230.00

Johann Sebastian is a rather splendid, humourously musical one of a kind artist bear in printed cotton and mohair by Barbara Ann Bears

Johann Sebastian stands 15 inches( 38 cm) tall and is 12 inches (30 cm) sitting, this doesn't include his plumes of wildly fluffy hair which add an extra 2.5 inches (9 cm).

Johann Sebastian is a very musical bear, he is covered in music! He was also our easiest bear to name as he has 'Johann Sebastian (Bach) 1685-1750' printed on his wrist, he can never forget who he is! Sadly our Johann Sebastian is neither a great composer or a musician, we hope that someone might be able to play the music he is covered in, could it be part of the Brandenburg Concertos or a Toccata and Fugue? We may never know. Johann is quite a wild and artistic fellow, yet with a very civilised personality, he's a teddy bear at heart and a hug or cuddle is pretty much all he needs to keep him happy.

Johann Sebastian is made from several different pieces of fabric, he's mostly made from a printed cotton fabric which is a pale creamy beige (like parchment) and is covered in music plus a few words here and there as you can see in the photos. His face, tummy, the backs of his ears and the underside of his tail are a long wavy beige mohair while the top of his head is a long fluffy black mohair. Johann has beige wool-felt which complement his colouring beautifully.

Johann Sebastian has large, beautiful, hand painted glass eyes with eyelids, an impressive nose embroidered from individual threads, we introduced a little extra (subtle) colour in his eyes and nose to make him less monochrome, and as you can see he has a beaming smile. Johann is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him a little heavier and more cuddly.

Johann Sebastian is an extremely cheerful, artistically wild, arty teddy bear with a very sweet personality. He could give the appearance of being very musical but his gentle personality means that he is an easy and interesting bear to live with, he will never cause any trouble, he just wants to make people happy.


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