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, Edward was brought to life again as the star of major feature film 'Goodbye Christopher Robin' Purchased from Harrods by Daphne Milne for the first birthday of her son, Christopher Robin, 'Edward' bear and his owner formed a unique bond and became the best of friends. However, following a trip to London Zoo the young boy later renamed his bear after the resident black bear 'Winnepeg' or Winnie for short. 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 peachy-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, the 18" sized Edward also 'growls' when tipped. Created by Merrythought as a Special Edition, each Edward bear is individually numbered and the 11" and 18" bears are presented in a unique 'Farnell by Merrythought' cloth gift bag. Suitable for children over 36 months. Please remove all tags and accessories before giving to a child.

Merrythought has been hand-making the quintessential English teddy bear since 1930. The company is a fourth-generation family business and a true heritage brand, renowned worldwide for producing the finest British teddy bears. The story of Merrythought began in 1930. William Gordon Holmes, owner of a spinning mill in Yorkshire and true entrepreneur, diversified into making soft toys from the luxurious Angora goat fleece he already worked with. He found a beautiful brick foundry building in the heart of Shropshire, and with the help of some skilled local seamstresses, Merrythought was born. Our heritage is something we are immensely proud of, and the original workshop in Ironbridge, Shropshire, remains Merrythought’s home to this day; a magical place where each teddy bear is brought to life using the finest materials and traditional craftsmanship that has been handed down the four generations of our unique company. Since only teddy bears of the highest quality are allowed to carry the trusted Merrythought woven label, we ensure the utmost care and attention to detail in everything that we do, right down to the hand embroidered nose and smile that gives each teddy bear its own personality. A Merrythought is not just a teddy bear, but an exquisite piece of British heritage and a loyal companion through life. www.merrythought.com
