Steiff Mohair Traditional Jointed Teddy Bear Aphrodite the Valentine Bear. The Lockdown Lovers Eco Gift. Separated from your loved one? Want to say you care? Send a DevonGrizzlies hug in the arms of this cute little bear.
Each bear is handmade using my own traditional style pattern and natural materials. Patterns are individually cut for each animal so they each have their own unique adorable expression. Aphrodite is a bundle of love. Made with pink mohair and fully jointed ready to hug. She is bubbly and fun and loves cuddling everyone.
I use natural materials and try to source materials as locally and sustainably as possible. They therefore make excellent eco gifts. They have glass eyes, which are made in the UK and a hand embroidered nose. Their limbs and body are weighted with steel pellets, which are recycled and sustainably washed. They are stuffed with the finest wool batting locally sourced, washed and carded. Their left feet are hand embroidered with the DevonGrizzlies flag to help them remember their Devon home. They are between 16 and 20 cm tall and sit unsupported.
They will arrive carefully packaged in a gift box and recyclable materials via Royal Mail signed for package. If you would like this delivered to a different address in the UK as a gift message me with details of the address and the message you would like me to include.
During this world pandemic I have been making the bears as a mindful activity. Once they are completed and have had photos and introductions I package them ready for dispatch and then quarantine them (in a glass cabinet) so that they can be dispatched with minimum further contact. They will arrive ready for a big hug once the outer packaging has been removed.
Please note that these are artists bears and have small parts and fibres, which are not suitable as toys for babies and young children.
