STEIFF RUPERT 100TH ANNIVERSARY MUSICAL 33CM - A LICENSED STEIFF CHARACTER
Licensed products are within the Steiff range of bears and this means that they have been given a licence to entitle them to make some of the famous characters from cartoons and films. Enthusiasts and collectors are fascinated by how Steiff have interpreted them and how authentic they are to the original and love seeing their favourite character come to life.......just like this wonderful addition to their growing range.
Rupert the Bear was the first really famous bear, created by English artist Mary Tourtel and he first appeared in cartoon stories in the Daily Express on the 8th November 1920. They published the first Rupert Annual in 1936 and these are still produced to this day and he still appears in the newspaper, making Rupert one of the longest running cartoon characters in the world!
Rupert lives with his parents in a village called Nutwood and has magical adventures, with spells, ogres, flying witches, dragons and wolves.
This famous bear is loved worldwide and this year Rupert celebrates his 100th birthday, so Steiff have created a fantastic new bear to commemorate this occasion. Rupert was a television star, which had a catchy theme tune called "Rupert, Rupert the Bear" and so this new Steiff Rupert is musical and plays this classic and well-known tune.
He is made from the finest soft white alpaca fur, with sparkling dark eyes and has a hand-stitched nose and mouth.
He is 3-way jointed (arms + head) and has flat feet, so he can stand un-aided in his white shoes. He wouldn't be complete without his trademark outfit of a red knitted jumper and yellow checked trousers and scarf.
This adorable bear is a childhood favourite of many and will make a great gift and will also be a highly collectable addition to any collection.
EXCLUSIVE TO THE UK AND IRELAND
LIMITED TO 1000
He has the famous gold "Button in Ear" and a white label, showing that he is only limited to 1000 pieces worldwide, making it a very collectable bear.
