Goliath the lion is sculpted from gorgeous caramel and brown plush and he has a tufty tail and a fabulous mane. Goliath is part-pellet filled and he wears an ornate heart key pendant necklace. Goliath is part of The Queen's Beasts Collection by Charlie Bears that celebrates the ten creatures that guard the entrance to Westminster Abbey, where Her Majesty the Queen of England was crowned in 1953.

Goliath is part of an individually number edition of just 2,000 pieces and he represents the Lion of England, which is one of the earliest animals to appear in royal emblems as a traditional symbol of strength and bravery.
