Aleksandr with his poetry books

Aleksandr is an original collectible Teddy Bear
hand made by me, 
Sasha Kleshcheva, in 2016.

Aleksandr's face

He is made of sparce longpile brushable mohair
and has English glass eyes.

His nose is
hand-stitched and waxed
and he also has
hand-stitched mouth and claws.

has a Sasha's Bears logo
on his hind paw.

He is a proud owner of
a Teddy-Bear Passport
and a Sasha's Bears card.

Aleksandr is 5½" (14 cm) tall
and fully 5-way jointed,
with cotter-pin joints
in her neck, arms and legs.

Like most of my Teddies,
he is filled with polyfill
and fine woodwool.

Aleksandr takes a stand

Price guide: £54.50

Aleksandr takes a stand

Aleksandr is an aspiring poet
highly thought of by many critics.

T. Bayer, writing in TLS
(Teddies' Literary Supplement),
recently described his epic poem
Crossing the Bear as
"...bearing down on your senses
like a grizzly in the fog".
(Don't ask me what he meant.)

When challenged
to find a rhyme for "Teddy",
Aleksandr eschewed the obvious
"ready" or "steady",
and immediately went for "heady".

Looking at Aleksandr's photo,
my Russian friends may well guess
which famous poet
he models himself on :)

Aleksandr was adopted by the very first person who saw him.
