He has a wonderful thick coverage all over of light golden blonde coloured mohair with no real signs of loss or thinning.
Bojingle measures approximately 20" in height and is a five-way jointed bear . His joints do turn but he has has a little touch of old bear rheumatics so they can be a little stiff, but he still manages to get up and sit down nicely !
This lovely cuddly chunky Chiltern bear is stuffed firmly with kapok to his body and limbs and woodwool to his head making him a wonderful cuddle of a bear.
He has perfect eyesight which for a bear of over seventy is good news , and he has the most perfect Chiltern shield shaped stitched nose which again is in perfect order along with his original mouth stitching!
This Super Chiltern bear has kept all four of his original black claw stitches on each pad intact.
Bojingles is hoping to find a Loving home for Christmas this year as the thought of spending Christmas on his own brings a little tear to his eyes.
Should you be able to invite Bojingles to come and join you all, he will come wearing his very best velvet neck tie with sparkly baubles around his neck .
He will also bring along some festive jingle bells too as Christmas wouldnt be Christmas without a jingle or two!!
I nearly forgot Bojingles will bring you a little sparkly star to hang on your Christmas tree in way of a thankyou for Inviting him to yours and some little festive treats also too for you!

He is a very unusual old bear probably German in origin but this style of laughing bear was also produced in America too.
Jester is not the type of bear either that you see around too often and he really is a wonderful old bear character!
He measures approximately 24" in height and has a very light coverage left on his body these days of his short golden mohair which is pretty much more of a dusting really here and there.
Jester has been through the wars a little bless him all in the name of love I might add and Once upon a time he was five-way jointed old bear but his head has been secured and stitched to his body many bear years ago and doesnt turn anymore but this doesnt seem to worry old Jester too much.
His arm and legs all turn well for him however although his legs do tend to swing a bit!
Jesters ears are slotted and sewn into his head and he has small amber and black glass eyes .
His nose stitching is original to him and is horizontally stitched.
This Super Old fellow is stuffed firmly with woodwool from head to paw , some of the wood wool has shifted a little from the tops of his arms and settled a little further down this is probably due to being carried and the way in which he was held all those bear years ago!
At the top of his left leg he has some historic stitches along the top opening seam , this is not really worrying or threatenng to him and there is no leakage of woodwool from here and his leg turns well too.
His paw pads have all been neatly recovered in felt material for him at some time in his life and suit him perfectly.
Once upon a time Jester used to growl when he was picked up and tilted back and forth but these days he is a quiet but Happy olf bear and all you can hear is his growler clunking around in tummy but this doesnt really matter because Jesters happy laughing face speaks volumes for him.
Jester is hoping to bring Festive cheer to someone this Christmas and he comes wearing his wonderful clowns collar with little tinkling bells on it and wearing some Christmas large bells too tied on ribbon around his neck and not forgetting his Special Clowns hat that we have made specially for him too and carrying a twinkling red star to hang on your Christmas tree!
We will bring along with him also some little festive treats for you too for Christmas to say Thankyou for adopting him.

Her name translated in French means star and what a shining star Estelle is too !
She doesnt speak very much English but loves Christmas here .
Estelle is a chunky Old French bear measuring approximately 24" in height .
She has had all of her blonde mohair loved away over the years with just some tufts left inside her ears bless her.
Estelle has obviously been a very well loved and hugged bear over the years thats probably why she has no mohair left on her body , and she has also been lovingly patched and neatly darned in various places on her body , but this just adds more loving charm to her !
She is quite a heavy Old girl too as she is stuffed throughout with woodwool.
Estelle is a five-way jointed old French bear and her neck, legs and right arm do turn but are a little stiff but her left arm is more stiffer and quite hard to turn as it has a touch of old bear rheumatics.
She has lost her mouth stitching over the years but thankfully retained most of her original nose stitching with soms stray strands and threads visible on the surface.
Her feet which are quite big are card lined and all of her pads for her paws and feet have been patched and recovered in material .
Estelle oozes with lots of French charm and cuteness and has a lovely presence and aura around her too.
She would love to spend Christmas with some other bears and perhaps some French bears to chat away with would be the icing on the Christmas cake for her!
Estelle comes dressed for Christmas at yours should you invite her that is in her pretty Vintage white dress with lace scarf and floral net headband and antique style pendant . She will also bring along with her a pretty twinkling star for your Christmas tree to remind you forever more of her very first Christmas with you!
