The income from the sale of Larry goes to 100% to "The Worbis bear sanctuary". It's a park where tormented bears are taken in and are nursed back to health.
Finally recovered, they can live there in their natural environment and become old in peace. It needs a lot of money to make this possible and the bear park is dependent on donations.
Twice a year I sell one of my self created and hand made bears for this project. The income will be handed out to "The Worbis bear sanctuary" at the bear fair "Teddybär Welt" in Wiesbaden, Germany
Please meet my newest creation
Larry is a wonderful "OOAK" brownbear child.

He is almost 19,68 inch 50 cm tall when standing.
I have added wired armatures in Larrys arms, legs and body,
he has Suedine paw pads, waxed (looks like leather)
He is 6 way disc jointed (double neck jointed)
Needle felted nose laquered with silicon

black German glas eyes with moveable eyelid
he is able to open or close his eyes and his mouth.
Larry is looking really lifelike.
handmolded teeth are made of Cernit
the bear is stuffed with sheepwool and plastic pellets
Not a toy for children !!!
A deposit of 20% of Larry's sale price of the auctions end. Further payments can be arranged to suit for a period of up to 3 -4 months.
My name is Heike Buchner, I am creating my bears since 2002. I am 56 years old, married happily and grandmother of 4 grandchildren.Togehter with my husband and our sweet dog Gina we are living in Passau, a little town in Bayern Germany. The first teddys were made by yarn. After one year doing those bears I wanted to try a sewn bear and started an online-course, where I could learn how to create my own pattern. From this time on not only bears were born. Lately I concentrated on doing nature-bears, teddies and oldstyle-bears. With my creations I was able to get a lot of awards and it is very funny to see the happy smile in my costumers face when they get a new creation from my Sunshine-studio.
