I created this little play teddy bear out of a semi-sparse, dark brown faux fur. He's child safe because I used safety eyes and plastic safety joints on the head and limbs. Nose and mouth are hand embroidered with a varigated brown perle cotton thread. Paws and feet are a textured upholstery velvet and at 8 inches tall, this bear is a good size for smaller hands to hand onto. Ears are double stitched with heavy duty thread for maximum dragability. Neck bow is removeable. A fun addition to any bear collection, a great gift for a kid of any age or for yourself. Thanks for looking!
