Toby is an adorable teddy bear with a happy expression made from the palest icy blue wavy mohair, carefully airbrushed with brown. He wears a white shirt and cotton bloomers and has endearing boot-button style eyes and a hand-stitched nose, claws and mouth. Toby is partially filled with poly-pellets and shot to give him a gorgeous heavy weight and a slouchy posture.
Toby is a one-of-a-kind teddy bear and is made exclusively for The Bear Garden.
