the bears

When thinking about the whole “vintage wintertime” concept (see “holidays are a comin”), we were really attracted to old stuffed animals. In addition to the enormous stuffed bear we’ve designed for our store windows, we decided to make some Free People bears to sell. The accessories designers asked a bunch of people in the office to bring in their favorite old stuffed bears. The one above is modeled after a bear that belongs to our store design and diplay manager.

And this one was made to look like the favorite bear of the founder of our company! The accessories girls had the bears made and then had them embellished with all the classic fp goodness… patchwork, embroidery, buttons and beads.

the big brown bear looks more like a moose to me. i mean, his nose is gibungous. give him some antlers i say.

hey thats not nice the bear is not a moose. the bear is cute and looks happy and flowery.

the weird thing is on the back of the free people bear it has this tag title “NOT A TOY”
But isn’t it a toy? I mean it’s a stuffed animal.

Hi Jean. Yes, it is a stuffed animal. It just may not be suitable for young children to bite, suck and drool on. That label is more of a warning. A child could bite off a button or something…

are you saying the stuffed moose community doesn’t have the ability to appear happy and flowery? i have to disagree. in fact, they are friendly and extremely sociable, though, they do not like to be sucked on or drooled on by children, that is true.
