I am pleased to introduce Mullins to you!

Mullins was inspired by the smells and tastes of Christmas, but he is a bear who can keep you company all year round. He is named for the mulling spices used in spiced cider or wassail, many of which are also used in gingerbread. His name is also a nod to Linda and Wally Mullins, who did so much to promote our furry friend, the teddy bear, through teddy bear shows and books.

Mullins wears a solid brass "petal" sleigh bell. I love the tone it makes.

Here's a little more about this sweet Crew member:

Approximately 10.5 inches (29 cm) tall
Brown wavy distressed Schulte mohair
Muzzle of cider-colored wavy distressed Schulte mohair
Ultrasuede paw pads with pulled fingers and toes
Embroidered nose, mouth, and claws
Stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets
Bent legs; designed to sit

Here, Mullins is pictured with brother Goldenstern and sister Cinnamon. I love this photo of the three of them. I hope you have enjoyed meeting Mullins!

  11. Hi Debora,

    Here I am - so, where is my hot chocolate? It's 33 degrees here and that would just hit the spot.

    I just love Goldenstern's story. It is so refreshing to read about people who boldly profess their love for God. It brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.
