POCKET KANGA & ROO
The R. John Wright "Pocket Series" began in 1993 with the release of "Pocket Pooh." The delightful miniature bear proved to be so popular that an entire "Pocket-size" collection grew out of it based on the characters in the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard.
The sixth item in the series was the delightful pair "Kanga & Roo." Both pieces were first sculpted in wax to capture their essence of their forms as depicted by E. H. Shepard in the original Winnie-the-Pooh book illustrations. Kanga and Roo were then molded using custom metal molds to give them sculptural consistency in production. Kanga measures 5 1/2" tall and is made of custom-made woven wool coating with jointing at the neck and hips. She has hand set ears and tail, hand-embroidered features, and glass pupil eyes. Kanga's baby, Roo, who fits in Kanga's pouch, has the distinction of being the smallest RJW animal ever made! Measuring a wee 1 1/2" tall, Roo is made of wool felt with a jointed neck, hand embroidered features, and glass eyes.
Pocket Kanga & Roo were produced in a limited edition of 3500 individually-numbered sets. Each came enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box with a Shepard watercolor on the lid. Included was an illustrated booklet, the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and the forms for owner registration.
