The Bear – The perfect Companion


About the Bear

The Bear is the perfect companion. He is cuddly and cute, has a sympathetic ear, is generous with hugs and sometimes – very rarely though – he even likes to share his pot of honey. The Bear is self-contained, but easily distracted. He does not say much more than ‘mmm …’ and ‘Honey?’, but he is easy to get along with as long as you accept one rule: Honey is made for bears!

Schlaf, the Viech and the Bear are friends… but it is not easy to be friends… at least not all the time. The Bear listens patiently to Schlaf’s sophisticated chatter and is happy to embark on the occasional adventure with the Viech, if – and only if – there is some honey in it.

Schlaf, the Viech and the Bear were featured in Stuffed Magazine Winter 2011!

Materials and Making

These handmade cuties are about 26 cm tall. The fabric is a very special, fluffy and cuddly straight pile cotton, the stuffing 100% Polyfill. The little face and paws are wool felt with machine stitched eyes and nose.

They won’t go in the washing machine, but a bath in cold water with shampoo is fine. Never ever bring them near a dryer.
