Rubear and Little Snow

I put a call out on my Facebook page for Christmas bears, I really wanted to make a themed bear but with the current climate being what it is, I could not afford to buy lots of faux fur unless I was sure the bear would be adopted. After a good chat with one of my amazing customers we decided on a reindeer bear with a snow bear sidekick. I sketched up an initial idea and then got to work. I was so excited to try making little antlers and shopping for little Christmas bells to make the bears perfect. They really helped get me in the spirit of the season and I hope that you like them too!

This is Rubear and Little Snow, Rubear is a cute bear who has dressed up as a reindeer to make a little snow bear. They are the best of friends and are inseparable.

Little Snow is a tiny fluffy little bear with little twig style arms, a needle felted orange nose, glass eyes and embroidered ‘coal’ buttons, he is a really sweet little bear who has a matching bow with Rubear.

Rubear has glittery eyes and glitter accenting his lovely red nose. He is incredibly soft and snuggly with the thickest and longest faux fur plush. Rubear loves reindeers and made himself little twig antlers.

These two have a lot of festive fun planned. They are going to decorate the tree, make sugar cookies and go carolling. They have a whole list of Christmas movies to watch and a constant cacophony of Christmas songs played on loud non stop! The Christmas spirit is contagious whenever these two are near.

I really hope you like Rubear and Little Snow, I have truly loved creating them.

Merry Christmas,

Oops I FORGOT!

I love selling my bears through Folksy, they are a British run company and I’ve had nothing but a great experience selling with them. However, when you set up a listing it lasts for four months (there is a monthly option but I don’t have enough bears to make that financially viable) and then you pop over to your shop and relist those who haven’t been adopted.

Bears waiting to be adopted!

In an ideal world all of the bears would quickly find forever homes but some of them take a little longer than others for their forever families to find them and that’s OK too, usually!

Now despite Folksy sending me multiple emails to remind me, I still forgot and most of my bears were not listed for a considerable amount of time, oops! They will never find forever homes if people don’t know that they are searching for families!

I promise to try and stay on top of it more! I have even written it in my planner for next time they need renewing!

I thought that since they hadn’t been shown off for a little while that now was probably a good time to remind everyone of the bears that are currently in need of new homes, they may even get them by Christmas!

Sunday

Sunday is the biggest bear that I have available even though he is just a cub!

Ysabel

Ysabel is the only bunny that is currently looking for a forever home, she loves to put carrots on the snowmen at this time of year!

Meadow

Meadow is dreaming of the first shoots of spring, he always struggles this time of year but he just needs extra hugs!

Noah

Noah doesn’t mind the cold, he has a whole lot of beautiful fur to keep him warm!

Quentin

Super soft Quentin is wrapped up warm and is ready to build snowmen and have sleigh rides!! He is feeling very festive.

Pheobe

Pheobe is all snug and warm in her little scarf but she also comes with a blanket too so that she is extra warm for the winter season, she really doesn’t like to be cold.

Marnie

Marnie truly is one of a kind and I don’t think the photos do this little woolly mammoth justice at all. She is so fluffy but has beautiful floral ears and little clay tusks, she is a beauty!

Cedric

Cedric is a polar bear who is used to winter but he still likes to cuddle up by the fire and have a hot cup of cocoa.

Jellybean

Jellybean is a super sweet bear that is a distant descendant of the North Pole Sugar Plum fairies. He is one bear that I am surprised has been waiting so long for the perfect family because he is the sweetest little bear.

Splash

Splash is a magical narwhal who wants to find a home that believes in magic! Not just at Christmas but all year round!

Felicity

Felicity is another bear who has waited a really long time to find her forever home but I am confident that the right family is out there somewhere for this heirloom fairy bear.

Hallie

And finally Hallie who sings festive songs no matter the season! She has been waiting a while for a forever home and my be due for a makeover soon.

That is all the bears that are currently available, all looking for a forever home. Could you adopt one of them this winter? You can find all of their details and more photos in my Folksy shop and I promise to try and make sure it stays updated from now on!

Bears Make Me Smile – My Little Lego Bear Collection

I really love teddies and bears. They make me smile! When Harrison Webbling was much smaller he took a big interest in Lego as many children do. It wasn’t long before I discovered that Lego create adorable little teddy bears, where had these been all of my life? I soon began collecting them and as I want this blog to be about the love of bears not just about the ones that I create, I thought it was about time I share my little plastic hug with you all. I hope that you enjoy it!

These ones are known as mascot bears.

Panda Suit Guy was from the Lego Movie Minifigure series.

Rainbow Suit Guy is a series 19 Minifigure.

Lego Brownbear Minifigure was a store exclusive.

I love the ones holding bears, it is amazing that they have made so many different tiny bears.

Flower Girl was an in store exclusive.

Spooky Girl was series 12.

Sleepy Head was Series 6.

NPOP Girl was a Ninjago Movie Minifigure.

Elf is a series 11.

Rocker was from a creator fairground set (60234)

There are some amazing bears that are from TV and movies.

Fozzy Bear from The Muppets Minifigure Series, Maggie Simpson from The Simpsons Minifigure series 1, Winnie the Pooh from the Ideas set (21326) and the tiny trio are Harris, Hamish and Hubert from the Brave set (41051). Lego’s own show Chima had some amazing bear characters, I only have the two but there are more available in tribes. The little blue bear was from my favourite of all Lego shows, Lego Elves (41183) which was the first set that I had just for me and made me fall in love with Lego.

Lego Vidiyo is not something that I have really explored but I think the bears Rasp-beary DJ (minifigure series 2) and Blue-beary DJ (43111) are incredible. I am also not overly familiar with the Lego Hidden Side series but the zombie teddy is amazing (70425).

Some bears are harder to get hold of, these ones were in blind bags and you got one bear in the set but there were four colours to collect. Luckily there are some amazing lego groups and the community is generally happy to help you source the ones you are missing through sales and swaps.

Lego also make bigger bears, I only have one, a beautiful Polar bear.

Sometimes you can even get the bears on the front of the Lego magazines, I got my baby brown bear and one of these panda bears from a magazine, the other two from Lego Friends sets (41412).

Of course Lego have been creating bears for a very long time and before the ones that we get today which fit in with the whole Lego system they had ones that are a bit different. From a series called Belville, I managed to find three, I would love more of the colours some day.

Well those are my lego minifigure bears to date, I am always hoping to find more and when I was searching for an extensive guide to lego bears I could not find one so I hope that this blog post is interesting to some people. I really hope they keep creating imaginative and creative bears because they never fail to put a smile on my face and I am sure that I can fit a few more on my shelf!

Thank you for reading,

This Bear is 108! A Story In Rhyme.

Oscar and Toby.

I have very imaginative and creative nieces and nephews, including these two beauties, Oscar and Toby. Oscar and Toby have a special teddy bear, Charlie Bear from the 2013 television show, Charlie Bear has been everywhere with them and seen everything, he is a little threadbare and could honestly do with a bit of plumping up but he is loved! Recently Toby quite confidently said to me, “This bear, this one is 108!” and he was adamant that this bear who has been in the family for 10 years is in actual fact 108 years old. It is impossible to spend time with children without them sparking my imagination and so the illustration and story below is for Oscar and Toby. (The illustration isn’t their bear because Charlie Bear is quite rightly protected by copyright laws). I hope you enjoy it!

THIS BEAR IS 108.

This bear has seen better days,

His fur is speckled with greys.

But I think he looks incredibly great,

When you know that this bear is 108!

This bear has learnt how to fly,

How to kick a ball high in the sky.

This bear has learnt how to skate,

He moves very gracefully for 108!

This bear has had many names,

Won and lost numerous games.

He has loved but rarely hate,

This bear’s done a lot, he’s 108!

This bear like crumble with custard,

He never eats hotdogs without mustard.

This bear will eat any and all cake,

He isn’t very fussy for 108!

This bear enjoys his winter naps.

He likes to snuggle in blankets and wraps.

This bear doesn’t mind if Spring blooms late,

He has seen it many times, around 108!

This bear still has time to make new friends,

He lives his life as though it has no end.

There are many adventures still to take,

Even for a bear who is 108!

The End.

Thank you for reading my little story of a very old bear.

Aurora The Bear

Please meet Aurora, inspired by the beautiful Aurora Borealis or northern lights as they are commonly called. Her fur is blue, green and a little black and she is incredibly fluffy.

I was really excited to create a bear with this beautiful faux fur and I think that she is the perfect size. Like all of my bears, she is weighted and wonderful to cuddle. Aurora already has a forever home and she is hoping that they love star gazing as much as she does. Her favourite constellations are of course Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, also known as the bears.

Aurora has beautiful little toes and an embroidered nose. Her fur almost seems to shift colours as it moves. Of course I am proud of all of my bears but this one was a special order for one of my amazing collectors who had the most amazing patience, waiting for me to recover from bronchitis and getting the Webblings ready for the new school term to start.

With a little black bow and my usual silver heart engraved with an ‘S’, Aurora is looking just fine for an evening beneath the moon star gazing.

By Samantha Webb

I had so much fun painting Auroras portrait to send with her to her new home, that fur was tricky to paint. All of my bears come with a little watercolour portrait that I hope shows just a little of their personality and the start of their story.

I hope you like Aurora and will pop by my adoption centre to see which bears might suit your hug or become the start of a brand new collection.

Bernard the Christmas Bear

Bernard may be tiny but he is full of personality! He is such a cutie that can sit in his box with the box closed or open and he can be taken out completely too.

He is hoping to find a home where he wont be put away with the other decs but if that is the case he will happily sit and wait for the fairy lights to shine at Christmas time!

Find more of his adoption details here!

Quill

Quill
Quill is a really tranquil bear, he likes calm and quiet and is really thoughtful bear.
Quill has a huge heart, he falls in love quickly, deeply and it lasts forever.
He is not a bear that you could ever love and leave, he is a real keeper and he will always be there for you, the calm in the storm. A cuddle and a good ear to listen whenever you need one.
Quill has a lot of love to give.

Quill has found his forever home and is on his way to snuggles and cuddles!

You can find more bears like Quill with their own personalities right here!

Jiminy The Magician

Jimmy made himself a wand and hat, he convinced a bunny to join him and they hit the road. On a journey to become the greatest bear magician of all time!
