Lionheart a one of a kind, artist bear in hand dyed mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price £195.00

Lionheart is a wild and colourful one of a kind, hand dyed mohair artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears, who is (almost) as courageous as a lion

Lionheart stands 11 inches( 28 cm) tall and is 8 inches (20 cm) sitting, these measurements don't include his long mane which adds another 2.5 inches (7 cm).

Lionheart looks like a wild bear with his bright colours and dramatic hair, but you can tell from his beaming smile that he is an exceedingly happy teddy bear, with just the hint of wildness that every bear should have. He has a strong and loyal personality, he'll try and make sure no harm will come to you, he will try and protect you from fearsome rodents and ravenous spiders, as long as they're not too big. He might be called Lionheart but he's not stupid, he knows when it's time to run up your arms and sit on your head, pointing at some fearsome vermin and shouting "Look at the size of that one!" .

Lionheart is mostly made from a beautiful piece of hand dyed mohair, a long, twirly, tousled mohair that Barbara has hand dyed in pastel shades of yellow, peach, orange and pink. His tummy and the underside of his tail are a long corn coloured mohair and the top of his head and the backs of his ears are a much longer, fluffy, blond mohair with brown tipping mohair which creates the mane around his head. His velvet paw pads have been hand-dyed to complement his mohair.

Lionheart's beautiful eyes were hand painted to match his mohair as were his hand coloured eyelids. His nose was embroidered with individual threads to match his colouring and he has a huge, cheerful smile. Lionheart is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing which make him a little heavier and more cuddly.

Lionheart is a charming bear, he is devoted and courageous and will stand by you (or on you) through thick and thin. We hope you love him.

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