Our fantastic bear Max has been specifically launched to support the Worbis Bear Park in Germany. He follows last year's launch of Emma the limited edition Syrian brown bear.
Max lived and was confined with Emma to a tiny 'bear pit' in an experience restaurant in Switzerland in 1992, where they spent 8 years. With limited exposure to nature from within this deep pit, Emma and Max often had rubbish thrown down at them by passers by and could only see the sky when they lifted their heads upwards. When bear husbandry was abolished in 2000, Emma and Max were rescued by Worbis.
After being sketched, photographed and studied, Max has now also been brought to life in 40 individual pieces of the highest quality plush and is filled with special polyester fibres to give him a lovely soft feel. He has beautifully airbrushed foot pads and features.
Max is limited to only 300 pieces worldwide and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
