Mantovani is a very shaggy, wild and wonderful, one of a kind, artist teddy bear in gorgeous faux fur & fluffy mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears

Mantovani is quite a large and heavy teddy bear, he stands 19.5 inches (50 cm) tall and is 14.5 inches (37 cm) sitting.

Mantovani is a big, heavy bear with a very dignified and relaxed manner. A gentle bear always ready for a little (or a lot of) hugging. He is a bear of the high mountains, where he practices playing the violin, it's the only place he's allowed to practice the violin. He plays day and night and has given rise to legends of a strange shaggy animal with a piercing wail, some may call him a yeti, but he's just a cuddly teddy bear looking for someone to appreciate his music.

Mantovani is mostly made from a very long, shaggy and dense faux fur which is a pale grey subtly tipped with black, his tummy and the top of his tail are a very similar faux fur which is slightly more beige and has a stronger (longer) black tipping, you might not see the difference at first, it's one of those "oh yes, now you mention it" things . Mantovani's face, tummy the fronts of his ears and the underside of his tail are made from a very long and pale gold coloured mohair which has a warm beige backcloth. Mantovani has coordinating paw pads made from pale beige German wool felt.

Mantovani has large, beautiful, hand painted glass eyes with hand coloured eyelids, he has a carefully embroidered nose that incorporates all of his colours and a sweet, thoughtful smile. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing making him a little more cuddly and loveable.

Mantovani is a wonderful, big, friendly bear whose long arms are made for cuddling, a bear who needs to hug and comfort. He's equally happy to sit though, just to be there at your side while you get on with life, he'll be there when you need him... unless he's gone back to the mountains to play his violin, it's probably best to tell him how much you love his music to stop him wandering off.

We will enclose photos with Mantovani 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 Mantovani is not a toy, he is an adult collectable and unsuitable for children under 14.
