Short 'n Curly is one of our very old bears, he's a sweet and cuddly, traditional teddy bear in gorgeous English mohair by Barbara Ann Bears

Short 'n Curly is a little teddy bear, he stands just 7.5 inches (18 cm) tall and is 5.5 inches (14 cm) sitting.

Short 'n Curly is a very old bear, he goes back to the mid-1990s, his label has our original logo sewn on it. You can see in the photos that Short 'n Curly has quite a pugnacious character, although he's a little bear he isn't one to be pushed around. He's a very loyal bear and is always ready to defend you and your honour, of course being a teddy bear his ability to do anything is limited but you can take it from us that he'll be rooting for you in any dispute or attempt to besmirch your character.

Short 'n Curly goes back to the early days of Barbara Ann Bears when we were young, fit and beautiful, when one of us had brown hair and the other had hair...where did it all go?

Short 'n Curly is made from a beautiful, distressed, honey blond English mohair, we used to love using English mohair, it had such a strong texture, it was made using looms dating back to the early 1900s, since the birth of the teddy bear, sadly the mill that wove the mohair closed long ago and 'they don't make it like that anymore' . Short 'n Curly has beige paw pads and tiny, black, glass, spherical eyes, these catch the light from any angle so he always has a cheeky twinkle in his eye. Short 'n Curly has a marvellous nose and an appealingly gruff expression.

Short 'n Curly is stuffed with polyester stuffing and glass beads (which make him quite heavy and a little more flexible) and like all our bears he is 5-way jointed.

We hope you like Short 'n Curly, although he's not a particularly happy chap we hope his comical belligerence will still bring a smile to your face, he's one of our originals, a bear from the last millennium, from the days before personal computers, iPhones and Facebook, a simple bear from simpler times, we hope you like him.

We'll pop in some photos with Short 'n Curly 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 Short 'n Curly is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
