A few bids later and he arrived at my house, in a much sorrier state than I had expected. I knew he was flat and needed plumping up, but not that his stuffing had disintegrated into a nasty red powder!
I left him for a couple of months until this morning, when I decided
to destuff him and try to clean him up.
|Chiltern Baby Bruin (SOLD)|
There were some chunky bits, which I now realise were probably his squeaker. I had a Chiltern Baby Bruin recently sold which had an intact squeaker, so I would imagine that the Panda would have had one too.
So far, so good - look at the mess, it is a good job I thought of doing it in a box. You can see the lumps that I think was his squeaker.
I disposed of the mess, took him outside to knock and brush the rest of the powder off him and then carefully turned him back to his right side.
A bit of gentle stuffing later and he looks very handsome. I tried not to stuff him too much as he would not seem right as a hard stuffed teddy.
|What a pretty head he has|
