Bart is jointed in arms and neck, like an antique teddy...but he is actually quite different . For though his body is stitched with lush multicolored English Mohair, his head and claws are needle-felted. Bart wears a red felt top hat and a stripey vest. He is a stout but short chap at 7" to top of his head. Bart was once a carnival barker, but gave it up to win the national spelling bee contest.... he just loves all those words.
