New Gisela Hofmann Bears

We have recently received a very large box of exquisite teddy bears from Gisela Hofmann. Gisela makes bears for us about twice a year and always never ceases to amaze me.

This time, Gisela made for us one of her newest versions of the Moon Bear. Malik is a phenomenal bear. He sits upright and is 45cm tall. He is made of 5 different types of mohair, has feet sculpted of faux black leather, has 5 joints, wired arms and two different feet. He is simply amazing!

In the photo with Malik, is also a realistic black bear, Sharis. Sharis is a shop exclusive, limited edition. This is #4 of 5 and Sharis 5/5 is already reserved. Gisela also made a very special black cub named Sami. She is also a LE, shop exclusive and this #1 of 5 is already adopted.

Another fabulous bear is Laurenz. He is seen in the back row of this second photo, next to Valentin. Laurenz is 47cm tall with long, sparse mohair and has a double-jointed neck. His arms each have three joints, to give the ultimate is posing.

There are few words to describe just how wonderful these bears are. Gisela's bears are technically excellent and beautifully executed. We hope you'll visit her web page and check them out.
