Princess Avalina - 29" Schulte Mohair Artist Bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
This gorgeous BIG girl is our first bear for 2018, and the first mohair bear made in our newest large toddler-like design (she will also be the last, as any future versions of this design will be altered quite a bit to reduce the size - this girl is just a little too big!).
Princess Avalina has been designed with child-like proportions, similar to our toddler range but much more chunky. She has a big, generously sized head with a broad nose, a sturdy body, long slightly bent arms and bent-knee legs. She has been cut from three colours of a deluxe 40mm distressed Schulte mohair - an old-gold, a honey-gold and ivory white. She looks out through big black glass eyes with faux suede whites and large, expressive quality eyelashes.
Avalina is fully T-pin jointed, firmly enough to sit up by herself, but loosely enough that she gives great cuddles and isn't impossible to position. Due to her bent leg design, she is a sitting bear only, and looks great perched over the back of a couch or shelf, or sitting on her own seat (** we are actually including her little basket as part of her adoption package as it is the perfect height for her to sit on). We have stuffed Avalina to a medium-firmness, and have given her a generous helping of glass and steel bead-shot weighting in her arms, legs and bottom. She weighs just over 3.2kg!
Avalina has our 3D pulled fingers and toes with silk-dye shading. She features the same shading around her very large hand-embroidered perle cotton nose. She wears a fully removable silver-tone necklace with large faux crystal pendant. Her dress is a brand new designer toddler outfit by 'Bloome de jeune fille' in size 18mths. (She could fit up to a size 2 in other outfits if there was button/zip openings to allow it over her generously sized head!) Her matching headpiece is fixed to points behind her ears with fully removable safety pins. We will send her on her travels to her new home with the pins still in place, but the crown removed and wrapped to protect it against damage.
Princess Avalina is a very large, very detailed and very heavy one of a kind artist bear to kick off 2018 in style!
