RUSS (REALISTIC BROWN BEAR)
Russ is one of the Bear Bits Swan Song Collection, made in 2017 after 24 years of professional bear making, and so is part of the last special collection that Jean and Bill make.


Russ is a brown bear with a wealth of detail. He is made from spectacular 30mm Schulte brown mohair combined with a slightly paler 25mm quality. Russ is 51cm ( 20in) tall and 36cm (14in when sitting. As with all Bear Bits bears he has the classic naturally shaped embroidered nose, 3D pads on ultrasuede and a small tail. He has 8 joints including 2 in the neck, 1 in each wrist combined with an internal armature from his neck to each hip. Head and limbs are firmly stuffed with polyester filling whilst his body is slightly under-filled with recycled polypellets. This allows him to sit in a bear’s characteristic slumped position but, when the ‘spine’ is straightened to also sit up and look alert. When these features are combined with turning the joints, he will also lie with his head to one side.

Sit 36cm/14", Stand 51cm/20"
