Feeling Regal? A bit goo-goo about the Royal baby?


The last Teddy Bear maker in the UK Merrythought are based up in the very fine place by the name of Ironbridge. Formed back in 1930 this outfit was a spin off from a chap who had a mohair mill over in Yorkshire and were one of the very first UK toy companies to fly the UK flag in Nuremberg, where the world’s biggest toy fair is held, back in 1958. Still holding the flag high the high-end plush maker are into the bespoke market now and are punting this Special Occasion Bear with a run of just 250 to celebrate the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new baby; name TBC. Hand-made  from Angora goat fleece and pure raw silk you can nab one for a Buckingham bank balance busting £145.
