The collectible toy measures about thirty centimeters in height, is five way jointed and is surface washable.
Because it is a limited edition release, the company has made use of its signature red font on white fabric tag and the gold plated ‘Knopf im Ohr’ or button in ear. Remember that regular pieces come with yellow tags and button in ears without the precious metals.
The toy is also a musical bear that plays the national anthem “God Save the Queen” that dates back to the eighteenth. On its lower right paw, you can find a visible gold thread embroidery of a musical staff, a treble clef and notes.
To further portray her majesty, the Queen Elizabeth teddy bear is decked in a magnificent crown and a regal deep blue coronation robe with spotted plush edging.
