The New 2007 Steiff "Jewels" Swarovski Bear

We hope that you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas holidays. . . .

Today, Steiff's Jewels Swarovski Bear (EAN 669873) arrived. She is an adorable light peach colored mohair bear and a stunning addition to the Steiff's series of Swarovski bears. This mohair bear is based on a classic 1950's Steiff design, and has a very unique light peach-colored Xilion crystal "Button in Ear". Jewel's name is delicately embroidered on one of her paws. Her hand-stiched nose is heart-shaped and the Swarovski crystal heart, engraved with "2007", that she wears around her neck is half clear crystal and half gold colored crystal. Absolutely adorable.

Madame Alexander's Charlotte's Web Trunk Set Released Just in Time for Movie

Did you know that the movie "Charlotte's Web" will be released on December 20, 2006? This holiday movie has gotten rave reviews and its movie cast is very impressive. To name just a few well-known stars:

  • Robert Redford plays Ike, the horse

  • Oprah Winfrey plays Gussy, the goose

  • Kathy Bates plays Bitsy, the cow

  • Rebe McEntire plays Betsy, the cow

  • Julia Roberts plays Charlotte A. Cavatica, the well-known spider

  • Dominic Scott Kay (a newcomer child actor) who plays Wilbur, the pig

Charlotte's Web was written by EB White in 1952, and is definitely still considered a classic.

Madame Alexander has introduced two 8-inch Wendy dolls to mark the debut of this movie - Charlotte's Web, and most recently Charlotte's Web Trunk Set. (As always, Beacon's Glow Collectibles includes a Madame Alexander logoed doll stand free of charge with the purchase of any Madame Alexander 8 or 10 inch doll purchase).
