McTavish is a an elegant and refined traditional Barbara Ann Bear made in a blend of fine Scottish tartans
McTavish is 12 inches (31cm) tall and is 9 inches (23cm) sitting.
McTavish is our first Scottish tartan bear, a calm and elegant fellow in a striking mixture of pattern and colour. A bear who is as happy on a comfortable shelf as he is walking the moors or sitting on a windswept beach and above all a teddy bear who is always ready for a cuddle.
McTavish is made from a variety of Scottish tartan fabrics all backed with wool felt to make him stiffer and more durable. We bought the tartans as a bag of offcuts so we haven't been able to identify the clans they belong to. Barbara has carefully arranged the patterns so that they don't clash with each other and also to prevent tartans that are too similar appearing next to each other. Rather than describe each one and its place on McTavish it would be much easier for you to look at the photos, as you can see his paw pads are also made from tartan.
McTavish has hand painted eyes and an intricately embroidered nose to match his colouring, he has a sweet, loving expression and he is stuffed with a mixture of polyester stuffing and plastic pellets, making him more cuddly, comfortable and easy to pose and hug.
McTavish is a charming and elegant bear with a calm assurance, a bear to be hugged and admired, a bear to be loved. He is quite different from our other bears, out first Scottish tartan bear, we hope you love him as much as we do.
We'll pop in some photos with McTavish 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, McTavish is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
