Cheeky Dusky
by Merrythought

IN STOCK!

The distinctive Cheeky Bear is a flagship Merrythought character, well-loved and collected across the globe.

Handcrafted in England using the same traditional skills used to create the bears of days gone by. A Cheeky of pure opulence, this stunning bear is made from two tones of the highest grade wavy pink mohair. Measuring 12 inches, Cheeky Dusky is five-way jointed and bean-filled for extra softness. She's the perfect hug! Her cotton velvet paw pads feature hand-stitched claws and she is accessorized with a beautiful raw silk collar sweetly tied with an organza bow. Her unforgettable face comes together with friendly eyes and a brown cheeky hand-stitched expression. As the signature of a true Cheeky Bear, she features a jingle bell in each ear and is finished with a prestigious stamp of approval: the famous Merrythought gold-and-black label stitched to the right paw. Cheeky Dusky T12DKY is an edition by Merrythought limited to only 100 pieces worldwide. Suitable for ages 3 and up. Please remove all accessories, ribbons and labels before giving to a child aged below age 3.

A 'Cheeky' Little Bear
The Cheeky Bears first appeared in a 1955 book and were called New Teddy T. They were described as a completely new range of bears with amber eyes, growls and very softly stuffed. There's a story (which may be fictitious) that Cheeky's name came about as a result of a member of England's Royal Family picking him up at a trade show in 1956 and -- having studied him closely -- pronouncing him 'a cheeky little bear.' This story has been repeated many times, with the Royals in question, sometimes named as the late queen mother or even the present queen. Members of the Royal Family did visit the Merrythought stand at the British Industries Fair in the late 1950s, so it may be true!

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.”
