Mini Edward is a beautiful 7.5 inch replica of Christopher Robin's 18 inch Teddy bear who famously inspired AA Milne's beloved Winnie The Pooh stories. Originally created by Farnell's Alpha Toys in 1921, Daphne Milne purchased Edward Teddy from Harrods as a birthday gift for her son, Christopher Robin. Christopher formed a unique bond with his beloved Teddy and the two became the best of friends. Following a trip to the London Zoo, the young boy later renamed his bear after a beloved resident of the zoo, a black bear named Winnipeg, nicknamed 'Winnie' for short, and a swan named Pooh. Christopher's father, AA Milne, was enamored by the wonderful friendship he witnessed between a boy and his Teddy bear and was inspired to pen stories about their journey through life together. Thus began the tales of Winnie The Pooh.
Handcrafted in England using the same traditional skills and materials as Christopher Robin's original Edward bear, this dapper little chap features a rich, antique-golden mohair coat and pure woolen felt paws of sandy-beige. His engaging eyes show a longing to be cuddle and loved, which together with a hand-embroidered nose and his endearing smile (cotton thread), produce a quintessential charm that can only be found in a Teddy bear of such timeless design. Mini Edward measures a petite 7.5 inches and his five-way jointed body is weighted with beans. He fits perfectly in your hands and sure to capture your heart. He's the perfect little bear!
