Nobby Gherkin is a veteran mohair artist bear from a distant planet by Barbara-Ann Bears

Nobby Gherkin stands 11 inches (29cm) tall and is 9 inches (23cm) sitting.

Nobby Gherkin is a bear of the late 1990s, a bear from our transition from the traditional into the wild and wonderful world of Barbara-Ann Bears. Nobby Gherkin is probably not a bear at all but a creature from a different planet where his long neck would be useful for picking the wibble fruits from the wobble tree and catching passing omnulots, that's what he's told us anyway, he may tell you a totally different story.

Nobby Gherkin was mostly made from dense, distressed olive green German mohair, while his tummy, the fronts of his ears and the underside of his tail are a longer, feathery cream mohair and the top of his head was made from a long and fluffy dark brown mohair. He has brown German wool felt paw pads which matches the colour of his fluffy hair.

Nobby Gherkin has hand painted glass eyes with eyelids and an impressive nose meticulously embroidered from several individual colours of soft cotton and he has a broad, beaming smile. Nobby Gherkin is stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets which add a little extra cuddleability.

Nobby Gherkin is a great bear, or a great 'something', he'll be oy too happy to tell you what he is and where he's been, but this might change wildly over time, he's told us that he's an undiscovered species of arboreal anteater from Borneo and even a cuddly creature made by us. Whatever he is a very happy embodiment of it and he'll always make you smile.

We'll pop in some photos with Nobby Gherkin and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a Christmas card, 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 Nobby Gherkin is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
