Basil
by Merrythought

Handcrafted in England using the same traditional skills used to create the bears of days gone by. Basil is timeless bear made from a rustic-style mohair, subtly complemented by milk chocoloate felt paws and a tartan fabric bow. He is 10inches, five-way jointed and bean-filled for extra softness. He's a wonderful hug of a bear! Basil's winsome expression comes together with a hand-stitched nose and friendly eyes. As a signature of quality, Basil is finished with a prestigious stamp of approval: the famous Merrythought gold-and-black label stitched to the right paw. Suitable for ages 14 and up. A Merrythought edition limited to only 100 pieces worldwide.

 

Only soft toys of the highest quality are allowed to carry the trusted Merrythought label. Merrythought ensures the utmost care and attention to detail goes into everything that they do, right down to the hand-embroidered nose and delightful smile that makes each Teddy bear so unique.

A Merrythought is not just a Teddy bear, but an exquisite piece of British heritage and a loyal companion through life.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices may change due to changes in the British Pound/ US Dollar exchange rate.

A History Of Fine, Handmade Teddy Bears In England Since Before 1930

Merrythought“Merrythought has been hand-making the quintessential English teddy bear in the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, Shropshire, since 1930 and is now the last remaining British teddy bear manufacturer. The company is a fourth generation family business founded by Mr W.G Holmes in 1930 as a diversification from his mohair mill in Yorkshire. Over the years a huge range of teddy bears, soft toys, dolls, push-along toys, rocking horses and other animals have been created in the famous factory.”

Why The Merrythought Emblem Is A Wishbone

Merrythought wishboneThe origin of the name Merrythought derives from an archaic name for a wishbone, a symbol of 'good luck'.
The wishbone has been the company's emblem since 1930.
