R John Wright Nighttime Winnie The Pooh #NWP Inspired by reading A. A. Milne's Winnie-the Pooh books to their four children, John and Susan Wright began to envision the characters brought to life in their studio. After obtaining a contract with the Walt Disney Company, the Wrights began to design their first character bear: Winnie-the-Pooh. In 1998, among the new offerings on display to the trade at the New York International Toy Fair in the R. John Wright Dolls' booth was the delightful "Nighttime Pooh." Measuring 12" tall, he was made of the finest custom-made mohair/wool plush with embroidered features and glass eyes. This charming R. John Wright Pooh is based on the original E. H. Shepard illustrations found in The House at Pooh Corner written by A. A. Milne and first published in 1928. Pooh comes fully attired for bed in his cozy cotton nightshirt, tassled nightcap, and felt and leather slippers.He holds a custom hand-crafted tin candlestick and candle snuffer. Also included is a small felt pouch with a supply of custom-made, hand-dipped Pooh-size replacement candles made of pure beeswax! This is the only fully costumed and accessorized Winnie-the-Pooh produced by R. John Wright. Each Nighttime Pooh came enclosed in a hand-cut R. John Wright presentation box with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
