Here is a real child’s treasure from the mid-1980s! This handcrafted and hand-assembled bear pull-toy is a unique, one-of-a-kind special item. A standing, stuffed teddy bear has been bolted to a deep blue, hand-painted wooden platform, which sits upon two sets of wooden wheels. A gold fabric cord has been attached to a wooden front post as well as drilled into a wooden ball that serves as the pull. This pull-toy glides quite smoothly.
The bear itself has also been decorated with a white cloak glued on black felt upon which floral designs have been hand-painted and small beads sewn into it. A fabric tiara that rests upon the bear’s head has a similar design. Finally, a little cardinal has been humorously attached to the bear’s head as well.
This child’s pull-toy is in great vintage condition. The colors of the cloak and tiara remain vivid. The stuffed bear is also in great shape. And, as previously mentioned, the pull-toy moves easily when the gold cord is tugged.
This masterfully crafted bear pull-toy would be a wonderful, playful companion for any child. And as such, this pull-toy would make for a surprising birthday or holiday gift. If you (or, a family member or a friend) collect very special handcrafted toys, then add this stunningly and lovingly made pull-toy to your collection.
