Wilfred is a very sweet and friendly artist teddy bear in gorgeous mohair by Barbara Ann Bears
Wilfred is 12 inches/30 cm tall and is 8.5 inches/21 cm sitting.
Wilfred is a wonderful traditional teddy bear, he has a very calm and sweet demeanour, he will never want to cause a fuss, he'll just sit quietly hoping that you will notice him and maybe give him an occasional glance and even a cuddle once in a while. He is one of our older bears, he's like a time capsule back to the early 1990s, before our bears were quite so colourful and extravagant. Wilfred was the first of our bears to have a beard, we were about to trim it off but thought it rather suited him, and from then on we have made many bearded bears.
Wilfred is made from a wonderful antique gold mohair, it is a medium length, and a little fluffy and distressed, it's not a type of mohair that is made anymore which makes him just that little bit extra special. Wilfred has brown wool felt paw pads and gorgeous amber glass eyes. Wilfred has a splendid, carefully embroidered brown nose and a relaxed and demure expression.
Wilfred is stuffed quite firmly with polyester polyester stuffing with some plastic pellets in his tummy that give him a little extra weight and cuddlability. As with all our bears he is 5-way jointed.
Wilfred still has original swing ticket and sew in label with our first logo.
Wilfred is a very sweet and very friendly bear, a bear who needs lots of love and affection, he's an elderly chap and just wants a quiet seat where he can see what's going on and occasionally have a brief cuddle. We hope you like him.
I (Andy) took Wilfred to Monreith beach while Barbara was having her hair cut and coloured (orange and yellow this time), it's a lovely quiet beach with lots of wild flowers on the headland, we enjoyed our time there.
We'll pop in some photos with Wilfred 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, Wilfred is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
