"What a gorgeous cutiepants, he's been loved but was clearly a family favourite, he also has working chimes!"
This is Tibbie! He is an English Ting a Ling Teddy made by Chiltern in the 1950's. He measures around 13 inches tall, with all joints working, he is stuffed with woodwool and kapok, and had lots of love and happy cuddles!
I really do love Ting a ling bears - how clever that they have chimes inside them! Tibbie was clearly in my opinion, a firm family favourite! Mummy human has done what she can to keep Tibby going by lovingly stitching his foot pads (as he had been on far too many adventures), and also giving Tibs his very own 2 piece outfit - how lucky is he!!!!
He has such a cheeky little endearing face .. so it's not hard to see how he was someone's favourite! He also still has working chimes in his tum! I find it really interesting that Tibby, his brother and mummy all have working chimes but they all have a different pitch and tone!
Tibbie is quite a fan of being outside, and also enjoys a good game of peekabo to keep himself busy whilst he waits for the perfect new home.
His Mummy and brother are shown in the photographs and are all available for adoption and listed separately.
