Tinker Bell from Peter Pan
by R. John Wright

Tinker Bell joins Michael Darling and Nana, his nursemaid, as the third edition in the R. John Wright Peter Pan Collection.

John and Susan have always been passionate about the Peter Pan story (see below for more ) and have immersed themselves in this project to treat the characters with the utmost respect, capturing their spirit and wonder. Tinker Bell is, of course, the most petite of all the Peter Pan characters and John's Tink measures a diminutive 3 inches tall seated. She is crafted from the finest all-wool felt and has ball-and-socket neck and shoulder joints for subtle and expressive posing. Tinker Bell's costume is made of custom-dyed English bobbinet lace and silk chiffon adorned with Swarovski crystals. Her fabulous wings are constructed of silk organza and are meticulously hand painted. Tink can be displayed on her felt covered wooden base or anywhere your imagination envisions her! Her face is delicately hand painted and her untidy up-swept coiffure is made of the finest imported mohair.

"There ought to be one fairy for every boy and girl if they only believe!" said Peter. "Tink is quite a common fairy," Peter explained apologetically; "she is called Tinker Bell because she mends the pots and kettles."

Creator J. M. Barrie described Tinker Bell as a fairy who mended pots and kettles, an actual tinker of the fairy folk. Her speech consists of the sounds of a tinkling bell, which is understandable only to those familiar with the language of the fairies. Though sometimes ill-tempered, spoiled, jealous, vindictive and inquisitive, she is also helpful and kind to Peter. The extremes in her personality are explained in the story by the fact that a fairy's size prevents her from holding more than one feeling at a time, so when she is angry she has no counterbalancing compassion.

Tinker Bell is produced in a numbered limited edition of only 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. Matching edition numbers with other editions in the Peter Pan Collection are provided subject to availability. Nana and Michael Darling sold separately.


Peter Pan Michael Darling by R. John Wright


The R. John Wright Peter Pan Collection
Michael Darling is the delightful littlest brother from the Peter Pan story. Nana is the nursemaid of Michael Darling as well as Wendy and John. A lovable Saint Bernard, Nana was played in the original stage production - and the 1924 silent film adaptation - by an actor in a dog suit. Each edition is sold separately.

When I turned eight years old, J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan starring Mary Martin was broadcast live on television. I watched spellbound as the story came to life before my eyes. I can remember having a hard time getting to sleep that night. I’m sure I was not the only boy wishing that Peter Pan would come knocking on my bedroom window to take me away to Neverland.

This is a complex undertaking because we are blending the influences from several different sources to come up with our interpretation. There will undoubtedly be touches from the Disney version along with the stage production. Various classic illustrations will also be referenced. The very first film (silent, 1924) of the play and the statue in Kensington Gardens will also factor in prominently. Both of these were overseen by Barrie himself.

The Toy Shoppe Has Offered R. John Wright Creations For Over Three Decades

R. John Wright and Susan WrightThe Toy Shoppe has had the pleasure of offering the work of R. John Wright since 1979. When Danny Shapiro, the founder of The Toy Shoppe, first saw John and Susan's work he was impressed with the great charm and fine craftsmanship exhibited. Each piece created by R. John Wright continues to display the virtuosity of the artist when considering fine and original design, beautiful craftsmanship and the use of beautiful materials of exceptional quality. As work of this nature can only be produced in small quantities, each piece is all the more special.

Originality Of Design

Every great object begins with fine design. John and Susan often take their inspiration from famous illustrations found in the classic children's books which they love. What is most impressive is that each piece created from these illustrations remains true to the original artwork: two dimensional illustrations brought to life in three dimensions exactly as we expect them to be. They become the definitive interpretation of our favorite childhood characters. The Wright's designs are also inspired by nature. The realism with which they create their bears, mice and other animals is matched only by their ability to introduce rich character and personality in them without resorting to caricaturish extremism.

Inspired By The Classics

Established in 1976, R. John Wright has produced work based on the most famous illustrations of all time, including Ernest Shepherd's Winnie-the-Pooh, Jessie Wilcox Smith's storybook characters, Johnny Gruelle's Raggedy Ann and Andy, Walt Disney's Classics, Palmer Cox's Brownies, Saint Exupery's The Little Prince, Beatrix Potter's animal kingdom, Rose O'Neill's Kewpie, Michael Bond's Paddington and Sir John Tenniel's Alice in Wonderland... and the list continues to grow today with their new Peter Pan series!

Fine Craftsmanship

R. John Wright The Little Prince dollsIn our opinion, the making of an heirloom piece requires a marriage of fine design and quality craftsmanship. Poor manufacturing can shatter an artist's fine design. The RJW Workshop employs a unique process to address this. After designing an edition, John and Susan oversee every step of production at their workshop in Vermont ensuring each piece lives up to their artistic vision. Under their watchful eyes, a highly skilled team of trained artisans puts each limited edition into production, detailing and finishing these treasures by hand. Due to the complexity of their original designs, John and Susan must often develop innovative techniques to insure that the edition remains consistent and uniform throughout production: the first piece in the edition must be as wonderful and charming as the final one. Technically speaking, as amazing and delightful as the early R. John Wright creations were, the newer pieces are far more complex. Today’s RJW designs are now brought to life in a way that they never could have been done 20 years ago.

Each accessory that comes with an R. John Wright creation is also of original design. John and Susan are not content to merely use an existing object as an accessory. When the object cannot be created in their workshop due to the material or specialized skills desired, the company works with master craftsmen in their respective fields to custom make the final pieces.

We believe that these factors have been important in contributing to the already established higher value of earlier R. John Wright work.

Heirloom Quality Toys

At The Toy Shoppe, we believe that true collectibility is earned by the maker's dedication and commitment to design, craftsmanship and material usage. Rarity is naturally implied, as work of this nature cannot be mass-produced. The market has already well recognized the collectible nature of the work by R. John Wright. We believe this will easily continue to be the case.

Today, John and Susan continue to create and innovate with delightful felt dolls, bears, mice and many other characters at their workshop in Bennington, Vermont in the United States.
