come to you

A Once upon a time bears tag
The other bears are always telling her off for not listening and paying attention to them but she cant help it she just loves daydreaming .
She is a very cute and chubby Chad Valley bear dating to C1953 .
She measures a cuddlesome 18" tall which is the perfect height for a bear she believes!
Dahlia has a pretty good coverage all over of light blonde coloured mohair with just a little loss and thinning to it which is mainly on the back of her left leg and a little on the back of her right leg at the top.
She is a five-way jointed old bear and her arms and legs all move well for her, her neck is a little stiff however with a touch of old bear rheumatics but this doesn't seem to trouble her much because she doesn't like looking back at things !
Her paw pads are all covered in their original rexine/oil cloth material and apart from some surface rubbing to them which always happens when a bear is loved and carried over the years they are in good order and have no holes any of them.
Her Chad Valley warrant label is still partly attached to her left foot pad and has faded with time and a little has been lost along the top.
Dahlia Daydream loves pretty dreamy Vintage clothes and comes dressed in her beautiful vintage hand embroidered jacket and with her pretty ribbon headband and antique style necklet.
Dahlia has just shared her most recent daydream with us and that it is to find a loving home for bears just like her who simply love to daydream !

You only have to look at her once and you can see what a proper sweetheart of a little bear she is indeed!
Roseberry Ribbons loves flowers and pretty clothes and always dresses up prettily to suit her nature and personality and today for this special occasion of finding a new forever home she has put on all her prettiest of clothes and accessories for you.
Being a Chad Valley bear she feels very honoured and rather special indeed in that the year that she was born , well 1953 to be exact that she was proudly given the Royal Warrant label on her left foot pad which says 'The Chad Valley Co Ltd , By appointment toy makers to HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and because of this special bear honour she is extremely proud to be bear related to the Royal family !
Roseberry Ribbons is a lovely, cuddlesome little Chad Valley bear with a wonderful pretty blonde mohair coverage that is dense and long and wavy with no real losses or thinning to it either.
She measures 16" in height and is therefore the most perfect bear height you would wish for not too small and not too big and just perfect for a bear huggery !
Her muzzle is quite pronounced and is shaved and she has amber and black glass eyes which are original to her too.
She has the Chad Family bear stitched nose , long oval and bound stitched with vertical long stitches , all original and factory given to her in the 1950's along with her mouth stitching too.
Roseberry Ribbons paw pads are all covered in their original rexine coated oilcloth material and have no holes in any of them but as is usually the case of such childhood bears being given love and hugs given some of the coated surface on the paws shows signs of being rubbed off revealing the cotton material lining below the coating this is not serious or detrimental to her and just proves that she was once a very loved and thought of little bear Once upon a time!
She is a five-way jointed bear and all her joints turn and move reasonably well for her with just a little stiffness in her neck joint due to a touch of old bear rheumatics.
Roseberry Ribbons has her paws crossed that she might find a loving forever home with you and hopes her Royal warrant upbringing helps her .
She comes dressed in her prettiness in her pink floral dress with pretty lace shawl and wearing her ribbon and rose headband and carrying a little rose posy just like a Royal Princess !

Toby is not old enough to be a racing driver but hopes one day he will but until that day comes he is happy just waving the flag for the start of the race and getting first past the finishing post before any of the other bears that is !
He is a bright , sparky little bear infact we would say he is a bit of a life wire really , he is always revved up and full of Go and you can see that by just looking at those bright shining eyes he has or are they headlamps perhaps Toby ?
Toby is a English Pedigree toys bear and dates to C1950/60. He measures approximately 15" in height and is a Super looking little bear chap !
Toby has a good coverage all over of light golden clipped mohair with no real loss or thinning to his coverage really.
His amber and black plastic safety eyes are the ones he was born with , so Percy has perfect eyesight too which is a blessing when you want to drive racing cars at speed!
Toby is stuffed softly but firmly with kapok to his body and limbs but his head is stuffed with other things like cars and wood wool of course !
He is a quiet little bear these days only in the way that his press squeaker in tummy is pooped out but his little face speaks volumes for him so don't worry!
He is a five-way jointed little bear and all his joints move well for him it must be down to all the cod liver oil he takes daily .
You can just see the tiny remnants of his original blue and white Pedigree toys label in his back seam .
Toby's paw pads are all covered beautifully in their original beige coloured velvet material and are in perfect condition too with no holes in any of them.
Toby comes dressed in his smart newly knitted blue waistcoat , ribbon neck tie and pinned to his waistcoat is a vintage enamel badge with the Letter T on for Toby!
Toby is driven by adventure and is really hoping to get fast tracked soon to a new home with some racing cars and bear friends to play with! Can point him in the right direction please?
