Merrythought Bears

Edward, Christopher Robin’s Bear

Merrythought's Edward is a lovingly made replica of the British-made teddy bear who inspired AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories. Originally created by Farnell in 1921, Edward has been brought to life again in the feature film 'Goodbye Christopher Robin'

Purchased from Harrods by Daphne Milne for her young son, Christopher Robin, ‘Edward’ bear and his owner formed a unique bond and became the best of friends. Christopher's father, AA Milne, was enamoured by the wonderful partnership he witnessed between a boy and his bear, and decided to write stories about their adventures.

Hand-crafted in England using the same traditional skills and materials as Christopher Robin’s original Edward bear, this handsome chap features a rich, antique golden mohair coat and sandy-beige pure woollen felt paws. His deep amber eyes, hand-embroidered nose and endearing smile give him a quintessential charm.

True to the original, Edward also ‘growls’ when tipped. Recreated by Merrythought as a Special Edition, each Edward bear is individually numbered and presented in a unique ‘Farnell by Merrythought’ luxury cloth gift bag.

Suitable for children over 36 months.
