Speedy is part of a collection from Charlie Bears inspired by some of the famous characters in Aesop's Fables; stories with a moral, still taught today despite being written by a Greek slave and storyteller in the mid-late 6th Century BC. Speedy is from the Fable The Tortoise and the Hare, which teaches us that "slow and steady wins the race" - or take your time and make good decisions to be successful.
Speedy the hare is sculpted from a number of pieces of velvety soft light brown and white plush fabrics. His features are portrayed in a caricature style and he has long legs and beautiful ears. He wears a smart satin ribbon around his neck and has delicately airbrushed details.
He is a limited edition of just 600 pieces worldwide.
