Marlon is a handsome teddy bear made from curly lght blond mohair with a dark brown tip. He has delightful black boot button style eyes and his face and feet have been delicately shaved to reveal the blond mohair underneath. His paws are made from thick wool felt and Frank has given him a beautifully stitched nose with a light waxing effect and stitched claws. Marlon is filled with polyester and some plastic pellets, which gives him a nice weight and feel and he wears a vintage fabric bow tie around his neck.
Marlon is a one-of-a-kind design and made especially for The Bear Garden.
