Chad Valley Hugmee Teddy Bear.
I recently treated myself to a new bear. This bear I am told is English and made by Chad Valley. He is a Hugmee bear and stands about eighteen inches tall going from the tip of his ears down to his feet. He was quite dirty when I got him this afternoon from the post office so I decided to give him a light clean with some Vanish. I just sprayed a little over him and used a soft cloth to lift the dirt out of his fur. I did a small section at a time and used my hair dryer to get him dry quickly. Although he is still a little dirty I think he does look much better. He would have had lovely golden fur when he was new. The Vanish was also good for deodorizing him. He had a slight smell but nothing really bad. he smells quite fresh now. I also gave him a very gentle brushing with a very soft hair brush.
Here are some photos I took of Harvey this afternoon. I’m not sure if the photos really show the difference or not.
For those of you who are interested in learning more about Chad Valley teddy bears and how to ID them here is a link for you. There is some very good information on this web site about them. I hope you will enjoy it. I also hope you enjoyed meeting Harvey today.
