Stripy Pete is a cheerfully comical and contagiously friendly, one of a kind, artist teddy bear made from wonderful mohair by Barbara-Bears.
Stripy Pete stands 10.5 inches( 26 cm) tall and he is 8 inches (20cm) sitting.
Stripy Pete is a funny and very friendly bear, he just wants to make you happy, he doesn't mind at all if you laugh at his huge nose, he says "that's what it's there for" and he's quite right, we designed him with a funny nose, he also says "a big nose is just what you need to find the honey, or the cake, or the cookies, or..." , OK that's enough Stripy Pete, you might also notice that he has quite a large tummy, hmmm...!
Stripy Pete is made from a sumptuous, long, very dense, soft and twirly, brown tipped cream mohair, he has dark stripy, animal print paw pads which blend in perfectly with his mohair and which together with his nose and mohair led him to being called 'Stripy' otherwise he might just have been 'Pete'.
Stripy Pete has beautiful hand painted, glass eyes with eyelids, a splendid nose embroidered from individual threads that tie in with his colours and a very happy and hopeful expression, the sort of expression that seems to be asking for cake. Stripy Pete is stuffed with plastic pellets, glass beads and polyester stuffing that give him a little extra weight and allow him to be posed in a variety of positions, all of which suggests he is waiting for cake, yes, he loves his cake.
Stripy Pete is a gentle, happy and humorous bear, he has an expression that suggests he has no idea of what's going on around him, a bear who is very easy to live with, he's quite happy to sit on a pile of papers for you for a couple of years, but we feel somewhere deep in his heart there are plenty of warm loving hugs waiting to come out, you just have to find the key to his heart... well we've told you what that is enough times.
We will enclose photos with Stripy Pete 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.
