Springtime is here and the bees are buzzing......................

I am very pleased to introduce you all to

Manuka The Honey Bear

I have always had a true passion for designing and creating much loved bears as I believe that they are the essence of what teddy bears are all about, warm memories and a special security.

This is Manuka and he is one of my honey bears. I hope that you like him as he is rather special :0)

Manuka weighs in at a rather respectable 712 grams and measures 14 inches high from his paws to his ears and sits at 8.5 inches. 

Manuka really is an endearing little bear and is one of my more whimsical creations.

I decided to create Manuka as Spring is now here and I noticed the first of the honey bees buzzing around in my garden :0)

Manuka has lovely black vintage English boot button eyes which I feel is very important in keeping with all of my bears. 

 His nose I have needlefelted in lovely soft chocolate merino wool and his mouth I have hand embroidered in vintage chocolate waxed cottons.

I have lovingly created and hand crafted Manuka from a wispy light coffee cream sparse German mohair of which I have lightly shaded around his ears, paws & pads giving his features a little extra depth. Manuka being a garden honey bear is sporting two little honey bees all of his own :0)

Manuka is traditionally five way cotter pin jointed, firmly stuffed and heavily weighted with steel shot enhancing his very rotund little tummy just as you would expect to find in a bear who eats more than his fair share of honey :0) Manuka also has a nice traditional hump. 

He has a very old traditional style head giving him a nice distinctive long snout.

He has long old fashioned hockey stick arms which are weighted enabling him to hug you when he is picked up.  

This really charming little bear has taken many hours of careful designing and hand crafting capturing the essence of the traditional English garden in Springtime.

He would make the perfect addition to your collection and would be a great choice for Artist Bear collectors.

Manuka comes complete with his sewn in tag, swing tag and his certificate of authenticity signed by myself.  

 As with all of my bears he is a collectors item and is therefore unsuitable for very young children.

Manuka's post and packing within the UK is FREE fully insured delivery.

International buyers please email me for your correct postage costs and delivery options.

Thank you for taking the time to view him I know that he really appreciates your time :0)
