BEDTIME CHRISTOPHER ROBIN & POOH The enchanting set shown above, R John Wright made the First 250 with the Hat for Pooh exclusively for the 1999 Walt Disney World Doll & Teddy Bear Convention. Titled "Christopher Robin & Pooh Bedtime, this is only the third large-size version of Christopher Robin made. Measuring 17 1/2" tall, Christopher is fully jointed and made of the finest all-wool felt. His face is delicately hand painted and he features a meticulously hand-knotted wig of the finest custom-dyed mohair. Dressed for bed as in the original E.H. Shepard illustration used as the frontispiece to the Winnie-the-Pooh book, Christopher Robin wears a tailored pair of pajamas made of fine English shirting fabric with a woven stripe and mother-of-pearl buttons. His hooded robe is made of all-wool felt with decorative perle cotton cording trim. His cozy slippers are made of felt with leather soles and complete his charming period costume. Accompanying Christopher Robin is a fully jointed 7 1/2" Winnie-the-Pooh bear made of custom wool coating fabric with imported glass eyes and hand-embroidered features. On one ear, Pooh wears a tassled nightcap made of cream-colored cotton jersey. Every detail has been carefully researched to capture the essence of Christopher Robin & Pooh as depicted by E. H. Shepard in the original Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne. Christopher Robin & Pooh came enclosed together in a deluxe maroon presentation box with a reproduction of the original Shepard watercolor illustration on the lid. Included is an illustrated booklet, the signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and forms for owner registration. ©Disney. Based on the "Winnie-the-Pooh" works. ©A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard.
