Kösen's Jimmy has been specifically launched to support the Worbis Bear Park in Germany.
Jimmy and his brother Gonzo were born in 1989 and began life living in a zoo. At 5 months old, the brothers were sold to a circus trainer and they were trained to perform circus tricks until the end of 2001. Following the trainer's death in 2002, the brothers were moved to the Worbis Bear Park as stated in the trainer's Last Will and Testament. The pair settled into life in the park quickly and became close friends with an older, Kathi, and they enjoyed a happy life together.
Sadly, Gonzo did not wake from his hibernation in 2010 and so, Jimmy lived out his days without his brother in the park until his own death in November 2021.
After being sketched, photographed and studied, Jimmy has now also been brought to life in 40 individual pieces of the highest quality woven plush fabrics and is filled with special polyester fibres to give him a lovely soft feel. He has beautifully airbrushed foot pads and features.
Jimmy is limited to only 300 pieces worldwide and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
