Robbie is one of our very old bears, he's a sweet and cuddly, traditional teddy bear made from gorgeous English mohair by Barbara Ann Bears

Robbie is 15 inches (38cm) tall and is 10.5 inches (27cm) sitting.

Robbie costs £140.00 GBP plus postage and insurance, £8.00 GBP in the UK, £12.00 GBP everywhere else, except Russia which costs £55.00.

Robbie is a very old bear, he was one of our first designs going back to around 1991, Barbara had designed some very nice traditional bears and decided that she wanted to make a centre-seam bear like the old, classic Steiffs... you might notice that he isn't entirely classic or traditional, a little cheekiness and humour crept in somewhere in the process, this is where the fun started! He's still a lively and chirpy chap and he has a great sense of humour, he'll never lose his sense of humour. 

Robbie was very popular at the time, the teddy bear world had seen nothing quite like him, we made him in several different mohairs although there weren't many brown Robbies. We think he dates back to the early to mid 1990s, back in the early days when we were young, fit and beautiful, when one of us had brown hair and the other had hair...where did it all go? 

Robbie is made from a beautiful, distressed, brown 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' . Robbie has brown, German wool felt paw pads and black, glass, spherical eyes, these catch the light from any angle so he always has a cheeky twinkle in his eye. Robbie has a marvellous nose and a cheeky smile. 

Rodney is mostly stuffed with polyester stuffing, he has plastic pellets in his tummy which allow him to be more poseable and make him more cuddly. Robbie, as with all our bears he is 5-way jointed.

We hope you like Robbie, he's a happy chap made to bring smiles to faces, 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 Robbie 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 Robbie is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.

Tobias is a a loveable and elegant traditional teddy bear made in a beautiful deep red genuine vintage German mohair by Barbara Ann Bears

Tobias is 16.5 inches (38cm) tall and is 12 inches (30cm) sitting.

Tobias costs costs £190.00 GBP plus postage and insurance, £8.00 GBP in the UK, £12.00 GBP everywhere else, except Russia which costs £55.00.

Tobias is a charming chap, he has the appearance of an old bear who has been through the wars, his mohair has worn bare in places and sadly he has lost one eye which has been lovingly repaired by a loved one with an old button, he is, of course, a very new bear and he has not suffered any damage, although his mohair is very old (probably dating back to the 1920s). He is a great companion, he's the sort of bear who has stories to tell if you can listen carefully enough to be able to hear them.

Tobias is made from a piece of deep, rusty red, vintage German mohair, it may once have been used for a cushion or seat cover, there are one or two small embroidered features on his leg, back and shoulders which give a hint of the mohair's previous life. He has beige German wool felt paw pads and one glass eye and one old button for eyes. Tobias has a marvellous nose, stitched from a flecked, charcoal wool. If you sit Tobias up he can look quite alert and attentive, but if he is allowed to slump he can look slightly sad, with a downcast expression, he's a bear who needs some good loving.

Tobias is stuffed with a mixture of polyester stuffing and plastic pellets, making him more cuddly, comfortable and easy to pose and hug.

Tobias is a charming and elegant bear with a calm assurance, a bear to be hugged and admired, a bear to be loved, we hope you love him as much as we do.

As with all our bears we'll pop in some photos with Tobias, if you'd like a Christmas card or another special card, for a birthday or Mothers' day just ask us.

As with all our bears Tobias is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.

You can buy Tobias easily and securely though our Etsy shop by clicking here or you can phone us and pay by card, or send us an email and we'll send you a PayPal invoice, the contacts details are here

Big Ben has been reserved. He loves London, he's made from London! A loveable traditional bear made from an illustration of London and mohair by Barbara Ann Bears.

Big Ben is quite a large and teddy bear, he is 21 inches (54cm) tall and is 15 inches (38cm) sitting, he's quite a heavy bear too.

Big Ben costs £320.00 GBP plus postage and insurance, £12.00 GBP in the UK, £20.00 GBP everywhere else, except Russia which costs £60.00.

Big Ben is very much a one of a kind, he's covered in London's landmarks, we suggest that you don't use him as a map though, you'd only get lost, but you can pick out Tower Bridge and The Tower of London, The London Eye, Knightsbridge, Trafalgar Square, a map of The Underground plus a few more. However, he's no tourist's curiosity, he's a proper teddy bear, he has a slightly sad yet loving expression, he seems to be thinking of something, maybe he's just thinking how nice it would be to have someone to throw his arms around and hug like he's never been hugged before...

Big Ben is mainly made from an illustration of the sights of London printed on cotton upholstery fabric this is backed with felt to make it stiffer and more durable, he's still very pliable and huggable though. His tummy, the backs of his ears and his paw pads are made from a medium length, slightly wavy mohair mohair that Barbara has dyed in many beautiful, understated colours, blues, greens, reds etc. (they all intermingle), they pick out the colours of the printed design and create a calm and harmonious bear, to have him made entirely out of the printed fabric would have been too much (yes, even for us).

Big Ben's beautiful eyes and eyelids were painted to match his colouring, they give him his doleful expression, he has a beautiful embroidered nose with the threads again chosen to match his colouring and a wistful smile.

Big Ben is stuffed with a mixture of polyester stuffing and plastic pellets, making him more cuddly, comfortable and easy to pose and hug and of course he is five way jointed.

Big Ben is a charming and elegant bear with a calm assurance, a bear to be hugged and admired, a bear to be loved, he's not quite 'traditional' he's more interesting than that, but he's definitely a classic, we hope you love him as much as we do.

As with all our bears we'll pop in some photos with Big Ben, if you'd like a birthday card or another special card, just ask us.

As with all our bears Big Ben is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.

Megan has hand dyed velvet paw pads which match her mohair perfectly. She has a carefully embroidered nose in various pinks and mauves to reflect her colouring and a sweet smile. Megan has clear glass eyes which pick up the colour of her mohair, creating the illusion that they are made from coloured glass. She is stuffed with polyester stuffing and glass beads, which gives her a more cuddly and soft feel. Megan has a gentle, inquisitive expression as if she is forever hopeful of falling in love and finding a treasured place in a comfortable home.

Megan is a sweet little bear, a gentle soul who just wants to settle down and be loved, she is the first of her design which is a slightly smaller version of the bear we made for Downton Abbey, which was Marigold's bear in the TV series.
