Product description

Every baby needs a boon companion to love to rags; Humphrey has seen it all and is patient enough to see some more. This old-fashioned teddy is knit at a firm gauge in Shelter, stuffed with wool roving, and assembled with components that ensure small children’s safety if their enthusiasm for him should become overly exuberant. Like every good bear, Humphrey is both large and limber, with articulated joints that let him assume even the least dignified of poses. His handsome raglan sweater in two colors of Loft restores his sense of propriety and girds him for the next adventure.
