Kid's toy - Haystacks the wrestling polar bear


I love David Bowie and I love a bear that can wrestle.

When I was very little in the mid 1970s every Saturday night there was wrestling on the telly. One of the most famous was a wrestler called Big Daddy who would boing his opponent off his big tummy. He always wore a red leotard. His nemesis was a big bearlike man called Giant Haystacks hence the name Haystacks.

He comes in 3 colours (tomato red & white stars / royal blue & white / striped) and can be personalised with a yellow felt letter of your choice sewn on the front of his leotard. I often have customers buy either the red or blue coloured leotard depending on their favourite football team.  

Haystacks is made from a very soft chunky cotton corduroy with a cotton leotard. He stands at approx 35cm and is filled with hypo-allergenic toy stuffing.

There is a matching hot water bottle too – please see separate listing. Makes a great gift for children, grown-up kids and animal lovers.

Washing instructions: You can put him in the washing machine - wash cold on a delicate wash and please wash separately.
