Handmade bears currently come in three sizes:
Little Shrimp 13cm (5 inches) £28.00
Middly Moo 19cm (7.5 inches) £44.00
Burly Hurly 25cm (10 inches) £60.00
The bears are completely handstitched using high quality Schulte mohair fabric and 100% wool felt. Each one has safety jointed limbs and head, and are stuffed using a mixture of carded lambswool and polyester filling, which conforms to toy safety regulations. Polymer pellets add extra weight to a bear's paws and tummy. Each bear has a set of 'crystal' safety eyes and is decorated using embroidery silks. The only other material is strong linen thread for holding the bear together!
Sizes show the approximate height of bears who are resting their feet and sitting down.
In the Spring of 2014 the bears sent one of their kind off to a rigorous boot camp, where he earned their certification for toy safety (EN71-1/2) and the right to carry the CE logo on their labels. However, the bears agree they would like to stay as traditional as possible and, being handstitched and made from mohair, are not suitable as toys for anyone aged below 14 years.
