My other recent designer teddy bear purchase was a "Hug Me Again" bear by Vivianne Galli in The Netherlands. This particular bear is named Moon. He is so exceptionally well made! His fur is mohair and his body is fully disc jointed. He also is substantially weighted, so it feels like you are holding a real animal in your hand. I was thrilled about the beautiful packaging, "passport", and thank you card that Moon came with. I will be taking more photos of Moon soon.....he is so much cuter out of the box.
