The R. John Wright "Baby Bear Collection" is an exciting bear series which premiered in 1999 and consisted of five original RJW cubs: Panda; Brown Bear; Black Bear; Polar Bear; and Koala. Each cub measures 12" 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.

The final piece in the Baby Bear Collection is strictly-speaking not really a bear. But "Joey", the traditional name for newborn Koalas, is certainly the most "teddy bear-like" of all animals. Constructed of soft grey alpaca, Joey was developed with realistic details including unique paws with separate fingers, applied felt paw pads, a molded leather nose, and glass pupil eyes. Joey represents the only R. John Wright Koala made to date. In one paw, Joey clasps a sprig of eucalyptus skillfully fashioned of felt.

Produced in an edition of 500, each baby Koala arrived in its own hand-cut presentation box with a signed Certificate of Authenticity, a descriptive booklet, and the forms for owner registration.
