BABY CUPCAKE - C1950 CHAD VALLEY BEAR
Baby Cupcake here has rather a sweet tooth really just like most bears , but is rather partial to buns and cupcakes and the more prettier they are the better and sugary sweet they are the better!
What a sweet little darling of a Chad Valley bear Little Baby Cupcake is indeed, she dates to C1950 and measures a cute little handful of just 12" tall .
She has fair covering all over of light golden colour mohair with some general thinning in parts from hugs and cuddles but then we can forgive a little baby bear for this cant we?
She is stuffed not only with cupcakes and sweet dreams but kapok to her her body and limbs and a little wood wool in her head.
Once upon a time she used to squeak when her tummy was pressed but those days have passed by and she is a quiet little bear on the inside.
She has retained perfectly her original nose and mouth stitching even after all those little kisses of fond love that will have been lavished on her Once upon a time.
She is a five-way jointed little bear and all her joints move and turn perfectly for her too, which is always a good thing for a little baby bear when you want to run about and play!
Her pads are all covered in their original brown oil cloth cotton covering and apart from a little surface rubbing to the top are in good order with no holes in any of them.
Should you have fallen in love with our scrumptious Baby Cupcake and like to adopt her she comes dressed in her newly knitted cupcake pink cardigan that Miss Merrylegs has just beautifully knitted for her and one of the younger bears has decorated the front with two little flowers so she truly looks like a sweet baby cupcake now !
Not forgetting her little bell fastened around her neck on sugar pink silk ribbon given to her by her Nursie here so she wont ever get lost from you !

GREAT AUNT PEARL - C1920/30 OLD BEAR
As Weddings can be quite an emotional affair for an Old bear Great Aunt Pearl always takes along with her a favourite antique silk or her best pretty lace handkerchief and not forgetting of course some dried rose petals and rosebuds from the garden in her bag to shower the Happy bear couple with!
Great Aunt Pearl is very probably German in origin and dates to C1920/30 making her the Grand old bear age of 80 something bear years but doesn't she still look wonderful!
She measures 26" tall when standing bear footed so to speak but her bear sitting up height is just 19" to the tip of her ears and talking about ears do you like her Vintage sparkly gold earrings and antique pearl necklace she has just purchased from the Once upon a time Treasury shop....we think they add that extra touch of glamour and sparkle to her Wedding outfit don't you ?
This wonderful old lady Bear is stuffed firmly throughout with wood wool , she has been given later replacement glass eyes by nursie here at Once upon a time bears because she was quite blind but she has retained perfectly her original nose and mouth stitching .
Great Aunt Pearl is in pretty good remarkable heath for her age and over the years she has suffered from just a few bear ailments and little accidents as many an old bear often has but all in the name of love I must add !
She has a fair covering all over of light blonde short mohair with general thinning in parts but nothing too obvious.
Great Aunt Pearl is a five-way jointed Old girl her arm and legs all move and turn well for her but sadly her neck no-longer turns because it has been historically stitched to her body many bear years ago but this doesn't seem to trouble or worry her!
Her paw and foot pads have all been recovered very carefully and neatly in velvet material many paw footsteps ago .
Poor Old Great Aunt Pearl has never married herself because she has just not found the right bear and deep down inside her fur we know she would really love to settle down with a nice old handsome bear perhaps its not too late yet?........
