Here he is! My first ever BIRD creation... "A. Foolnz", a totally new and original design! (click pics to see him big) His name is an anagram of the famous bear "Alfonzo".. named as such to celebrate Alfonzo's Centenary for Teddy Bears of Witney 2008 catalog. A. Foolnz is a close genetic relative (or mutation) of my *fattie bears (*as sweetly described by Pengy collectors).. AKA my "Buddha Bears".

He is indeed a bit on the heavy side for a winged creature, with a tendency to make a tree branch sag... but we won't hold it against him. Made of thick wavy Schulte hand-dyed mohair, handpainted glass eyes, hand-dyed pink merino felt wool beak, jointed wings, polyfil with encased steel BB's for a nice weight.

LE of only 5, available exclusively through Witney catalog and/ or their web site.

He sure has personality. I like him. He's adorable. He makes me laugh, no, I'm not laughing at him, I'm laughing with him. Ha! Ha!
Can he fly to the branch, or does he have to climb the tree?
Hugs,
Karen

A combination of hops, waddles, grunts, and flapping gets him up to the branches ;oD
Then getting down is another story! LOL!

I keep thinking of that Zappa song,
Alphonso's Pancake Breakfast.

You need to sew some fabric pancakes to pose him on.
