Merrythought Edward Bear Is Here!

We are pleased to announce that our first shipment of Merrythought Bears, handmade in England since 1930, have arrived in time for holiday ordering.

All of the bears are amazing, old fashioned chaps but one of the bears named Edward, Christopher Robin's Teddy Bear, really sticks out.

According to Merrythought:
"Edward is a simply beautiful replica of the teddy bear who famously inspired AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories.  Originally created by Farnell in 1921, this special bear is brought to life again by Merrythought as the star of major film feature 'Goodbye Christopher Robin'.

Purchased from Harrods by Daphne Milne for the birthday of her son, Christopher Robin, Edeard bear and his owner formed a unique bond and became the best of friends.  Christopher's father, AA Milne, was enamored by the wonderful partnership he witnessed between a boy and his teddy bear, and decided to pen stories about their journey through life together.

Merrythought's Edward bear has been traditionally crafted in England from the finest mohair (Angora goat fleece) and wool felt, and features a friendly hand-embroidered nose and smile.  With such unique character and charm, he is a true friend for life. . . "

Edward comes in two sizes - 18 inches and 11 inches.

Beacon's Glow Collectibles is proud to be one of the first Merrythought retailers in the US.
