Kipling, a one of a kind, traditional mohair artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price $175.00

Kipling is a very sweet and cuddly, one of a kind, traditional artist teddy bear by Barbara Ann Bears in wonderful chocolate brown mohair

Kipling stands 13 inches/33cm tall and is 10 inches/25 cm sitting.

Kipling is a very sweet, traditional teddy bear, he has a very gentle and loving expression and seems to yearn for hugs. He isn't a slim, athletic bear, the very idea of exercise fills him with dread, the kind of dread that fills teddy bears when you say "sorry, we seem to have run out of honey". He says "a teddy bear should just sit and wait for cuddles, a teddy bear doesn't need to be strong enough to climb trees, fast enough to chase down a moose, or wild enough to destroy a medium-sized china shop" wise words indeed, especially if you own a medium-sized china shop!

Kipling is made from a beautiful, slightly distressed German mohair which is the colour of the most delicious chocolate, he has matching German wool-felt paw pads that coordinate very well with his mohair. Kipling has boot buttons for eyes, just like the really old teddy bears. He has a carefully embroidered nose and a sweet smile. He is stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets, which gives him a more cuddly and soft feel. Kipling was designed to be extra cuddly, he's a little plumper than most teddy bears.

Kipling is a sweet bear with a wonderfully kind and loving expression, he's like a lost child at a railway station, desperately hoping that someone he loves will come along, pick him up and hug him tight and never let him go again.
