Product Description

It really was a very special moment when Royal Mail asked Merrythought if could present them with their highest honour – to issue a collector issue stamp showing the Magnet bear, the very first teddy bear they ever produced.

To celebrate, Merrythought decided to reproduce this historic bear using the original 86 year-old design.

From his beautiful beige mohair which has been specially ‘aged’ to give him a lovely vintage look…to his delicately hand-stitched claws…and those hypnotic amber eyes…he shows that Merrythought has lost none of its traditional skills. And, like all the best collector bears, he’s fully jointed so you can pose him as you wish.

In a special Danbury Mint exclusive, Merrythought have paired the bear with the new stamp, preserved forever in a lovely gold-plated, stamp-shaped pendant.

Only 1,931 bears can ever be produced worldwide.
