Edward - Christopher Robin's Teddy Bear by Merrythought - 46cm. Merrythought's Edward is a stunning replica of the teddy bear who famously inspired AA Milne's world famous Winnie The Pooh stories. Originally created by Farnell in 1921, Merrythought have brought Edward to life again to star in the major feature film Goodbye Christopher Robin.
Edward and Christopher Robin became the very best of friends. Following a trip to London Zoo, the young boy later named his bear after the zoo's resident black bear Winnipeg, or Winnie for short.
Christopher Robin's father, AA Milne was so enamoured with his son's partnership with his teddy bear and began to pen stories about their journey through life together. Hand crafted in England using the same traditional skills and materials used to create Christopher Robin's original Edward bear, this handsome chap is made from antique gold coloured mohair and has simply exquisite wool felt foot pads. True to the original, he gently growls when tipped. Edward has been recreated as part of a special edition and each bear is individually consecutively numbered. He is presented in a charming'Farnell by Merrythought' cloth bag.
This endearing teddy bear is a must for all fans of Winnie The Pooh and of the film. EDWARD IS NOW OFFERED WITH A SPECIAL COMPLIMENTARY KEYRING! 2021 marks 100 years since Edward Bear was given to Christopher Robin for his 1st birthday. To celebrate Edward's 100th Birthday, Merrythought has created a beautiful gold-plated keyring featuring this famous bear and engraved with the year. Size: 46cm / 18 inches.
