When my daughter was born one of the gifts she received was this beautiful soft bear from Mothercare. It can be purchased either in a Mothercare shop or on their website for £8.00.
This bear is absolutely gorgeous and has such soft fur. He even has little rosy cheeks and a happy friendly face. We have nicknamed our bear 'Bertie'- (she has lots of soft toys and its easier than trying to describe to other half which one she wants!).
Initially as my daughter was only 5lbs 7oz and was therefore very small 'Bertie' was seemed almost as tall as she was, as he is roughly 11 inches tall. 'Bertie's' feet are stuffed with what feels like some sort of seed and as is his tummy. His hands and feet have soft padding. My daugther enjoys the way that parts of the body feel different.
He has a rattle in his middle which my daughter loves. It is not too loud so did not startle her when she was very small. It sounds almost like a bell.
My daughter did not interact with 'Bertie' much until around 4 months old and from then onwards has loved him. He is so soft and snuggle and she likes to cuddle him and rattle him. He is light enough for her to handle with ease.
He is extremely well made and durable and really lovely to look at- a great first teddy bear for baby. My daughter is nearly 7 months old now really loves him.
Highly recommend and so glad she got him.
