Product Description

‘Mr Whoppit’ is a very special and famous little bear. He first appeared in 1953 in Robin, a weekly comic for children. Three years later Merrythought reproduced the pint-sized character then known simply as ‘Woppit’.

One of these little bears was given as a lucky mascot to Donald Campbell who broke eight absolute speed records on land and water in the 1950s and 60s.

Now, Merrythought are proud to bring back their most famous creation. Adapted from the original patterns, this quirky little bear is made from soft, light-brown alpaca and has hypnotic amber glass eyes. His little outfit of a red-felt jacket and blue shoes is simply delightful.

Mr Whoppit will be issued in a strict limited edition. Only 1,956 pieces can ever be made – celebrating the year the original bear was produced.

Actual size is 9" (22cm) standing.
