BABY BEAR - BAO-BAO
The R. John Wright "Baby Bear Collection" is an exciting original bear series consisting of five RJW cubs: Panda; Brown Bear; Black Bear; Polar Bear; and Koala. Each cub measures 12² tall and is fully jointed for playful posing. Extensively researched, each of the Baby Bears feature true-to-life details such as felt paw pads, inserted resin claws, realistic coloring and glass eyes. Each cub holds an edible which is indigenous to their species handcrafted out of wool felt.
Bao-Bao (rhymes with now-now) means "baby" in Chinese and was the first piece in the Baby Bear Collection. This adorable panda cub is constructed of the finest pieced black and white mohair and wool plush and features a felt nose, open mouth with a felt tongue, and distinctive glass pupil eyes. In one paw, Bao-Bao holds a stalk of bamboo, his favorite food, skillfully fashioned out of felt and delicately airbrushed. Bao-Bao was introduced at a special one-time-only signing event with John & Susan Wright at RJW retailer, PRECIOUS THINGS, in Singapore.
Produced in an edition of 500, each baby Panda arrived in itıs own hand-cut presentation box with a signed Certificate of Authenticity, a descriptive booklet, and the forms for owner registration.
