Nine years ago when C was born he was given a Charlie bears. It’s held a very special place in our hearts, and is really special to C. It even lives on the mantel piece in his bedroom, which must mean its special, because only the very best things get pride of place there.
Given the fact that its nine years ago, you’d expect even the best of bears to be looking a little tired but its not the case at all. Our bear still looks as beautiful as the day he arrived.He is beautifully soft and he has the sweetest, kindest face. He’s also gently, poseable, which means he does sit nicely on the shelf and he also is a good weight which helps keep him sat up too.
Charlie bears is a relatively new brand of teddy, created in 2005 by Charlotte and William Morris in Launceston, Cornwall.
A number of novel concepts were used in creating Charlie’s appeal. A skill borrowed from ladies hair dressing industry, is tipping several hairs with colour, adding a unique touch, not seen before in Teddies. Added to this was mixing in hairs of different length and colour. As you might expect, such care and attention to detail, cannot easily be mass produced.
