Ready for the Slopes!


Little Mohair Teddy Bear with Poseable Joints and Knitted Ski Sweater (LEO Design)


Our little "Ski Lodge Teddy" wants to join you on the slopes!  Send for him.  He's ready to go!

Every year, since 1995, I have selected one Holiday Bear for the season—a different bear every year.  The gang always "awaited adoption" in a giant, old pickle crock, near the shop's front door. Usually, not long after Christmas, the last little bear would be picked-up and taken home.

This year, we're joined by this little guy.  He wears a knitted ski sweater—red and white—and black velvet shorts.  His posable limbs add dynamic character while his helpless little face adds irresistible wistfulness.  To learn more about him, please click on the photo above.
