Edward is a simply beautiful replica of the British-made teddy bear who famously inspired AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories. Originally created by Farnell in 1921, Edward has been brought to life again as the star of major feature film 'Goodbye Christopher Robin'
Purchased from Harrods by Daphne Milne for her young son, Christopher Robin, 'Edward' bear and his owner formed a unique bond and became the best of friends. Christopher's father, AA Milne, was enamoured by the wonderful partnership he witnessed between a boy and his bear, and decided to pen stories about their eventful journey through life together.
Hand-crafted in England using the same traditional skills and materials as Christopher Robin's original Edward bear, this handsome chap features a rich, antique golden mohair coat and sandy-beige pure woollen felt paws. His deep amber eyes show a longing to be loved, which together with a hand-embroidered nose and endearing smile, give him a quintessential charm that can only be found in a teddy bear of such timeless design and heritage.
True to the original, Edward also 'growls' when tipped. Recreated by Merrythought as a Special Edition, each Edward bear is individually numbered and presented in a unique 'Farnell by Merrythought' cloth gift bag - the perfect companion to take home this Christmas.

A wonderful bear for collecting or companionship
Collectors will love the look of this bear. He has very classic lines, with that lovely pointed muzzle, and a fine mohair coat. Perhaps the nicest little feature for collectors is that he has a small, sewn-in tag with his limited edition number next to the CE/cleaning information tag, so if you lose his information card, you'll still know where in the line he comes.
The Edward bear isn't just a collector's bear, however. He'll also appeal to children. In addition to being jointed, he's a solid bear, well-stuffed bear. His shipping weight was 2 kg. As such, he has real presence when you hug him. He also has that delightful growler, which allows him to "talk" back when you tip him.
Any buyer, of course, will love the care taken with his construction. Every cut and stitch speaks to his quality
