Wojtek Birthday Bear 2017 by Charlie Bears
A very limited edition collector's bear. 1 in 12 will have a tag signed by Charlie!
Birthday Wojtek (pronounced Voy-tek) is our beary special bear cub who is helping us celebrate our 12th Birthday! He is an a-paw-rable grizzly cub with the most appealing eyes and super soft coat for pawfect snuggles! Also, 1 in 12 is signed by Charlie and so will you be lucky today?
This bear cub is inspired by the story of a Syrian Brown Bear of the same name who was enlisted as a soldier after he was adopted by a young recruit in the Polish II Corps during WWII. He eventually retired to Edinburgh Zoo in 1947, where he became somewhat of a celebrity before his death in 1963.
Wojtek means ‘joyful warrior’ in Polish and so we hope that he can spread some joy in your hug too!
Bear cub height: 34cm / 13.5"
