Product Description

Late in the evening of 7th May 1945, the BBC interrupted its scheduled programming with a newsflash. It had taken over five long years but finally the war with Germany was over.

The following day would be a national holiday – Victory in Europe Day.

After years of rationing, black-outs and bombing, the people of Britain were eager to celebrate. Street parties were planned all over the country. Colourful bunting and Union Jack flags hung from every window and ecstatic cheering crowds filled the streets.

Now, Merrythought, Britain’s oldest surviving teddy bear manufacturer, has created a very special schoolboy bear in tribute to this extraordinary day in British history.

The Merrythought VE Day 75th Anniversary Bear has been hand-crafted using traditional methods. His blond coloured mohair has been specially ‘aged’ to give him all the charm and character of a vintage teddy bear. His amber eyes sparkle with joy and his features have been lovingly hand-stitched.  He’s dressed in his ‘best clothes’ – his school uniform – for the celebrations. He even holds a Union Jack flag in his paw to wave proudly.

A strict limited edition – only 1,945 pieces can ever be made.

Actual size is 13" (33cm) standing.
