The enchanting little bear shown above was made in 1999 exclusively for TEDDYS, an authorized R. John Wright retailer in Hamilton Square, New Jersey. Named "PoohBee", this is one of the more unusual and whimsical of all the R. John Wright Poohs! Fully jointed and standing approximately 8" tall, PoohBee is constructed of the finest custom-woven mohair 'coating' fabric, with German glass eyes and hand embroidered features.
What really sets this Winnie-the-Pooh apart, of course, is his detailed and amusing costume! To get closer to the honey he loves, Pooh has donned a removable bee suit pieced of black and yellow felt and complete with a "stinger"! Pooh also sports a snug-fitting removable felt cap with ear holes and "antennae." In one paw PoohBee holds a sprig of clover, skillfully constructed of the finest all-wool felt.
This playful and exquisitely crafted creation was produced in a small numbered limited edition of just 500 pieces. PoohBee came enclosed in his own custom-made presentation box. The individually-numbered signed certificate of authenticity, illustrated booklet, and the forms for owner registration were included.
