On 11 November 1918, the guns fell silent on the Western Front.
In commemoration of this event, and in memory of all those Australians who served, we have created a very special bear to embody the Spirit of Remembrance.
Inspired by the time-honoured heritage of traditional British and continental mohair teddy bears, the Spirit of Remembrance bear hearkens back one hundred years – to a time when so much was lost, and when our nation made a Promise to Remember.
Standing 52cm tall, he is depicted in a moment of solemn reflection. With bowed head and lowered eyes, he remembers mates and comrades who have not returned.
Medals of service are pinned on his khaki green service tunic. The Rising Sun badges on his slouch hat and collar show that he was part of the AIF, as do the brass buttons that read “Australian Military Forces”.
Since only 1,918 examples will ever be produced, the Spirit of Remembrance bear is a treasure unlike any other.
It’s a bear to Remember – it’s a Promise kept
Due to a costing error on our part, this range of mohair bears is being sold at a drastically reduced retail price while stocks last. This is a premium quality, 52cm authentic mohair teddy bear with great uniform detail that normally retails at $199.00. Having realised our mistake we were faced with two choices; either increase the price by $70, or stick to our original price of $129.00 and 'bite the bullet'. We chose to absorb the loss and pass the benefit on to our customers. So, if you're reading this, you're looking at a never-to-be-repeated price! Please be aware that we cannot offer wholesale discounts on this bear.
