Rupert Bear by Rainbow Designs - 25cm

Rainbow Designs

Catalogue number: UN1903338

Rupert is the lovable bear from Nutwood. He is eight years older than Mickey Mouse, six years older than Winnie the Pooh and thirty eight years older than Paddington! He was the very first really famous bear.

He first appeared in the Daily Express on November 8, 1920 and has been anthologised in Annuals since 1936. In the 1920's there was a vogue for children's cartoons in British newspapers. The Express turned to Mary Tourtel, who Rupert. Still running daily, Rupert is one of the longest running children's cartoons in newspapers in the world. Mary Tourtel flung Rupert into a fairy-tale world of magic spells, ogres, flying witches, dragons and wolves in scenes of a true wonderland!

This cuddly Rupert Bear is made from super soft white plush fabric and is dressed in his trademark red knitted jumper and mustard coloured checked trousers and scarf. 

He is sure to delight Rupert Bear fans of all ages!

Please note that this Rupert has now been discontinued by Rainbow Designs.  When he is gone, we will never get him again!
