Oh darn this is so freakin’ cute it actually hurts! The only thing that would make it cuter is if it were a mod cat but we can’t have everything, can we? He’s nearly 20 pounds of British Sterling (not including shipping) which is roughly $40.00 US but I know quite a few of you out there that will be ordering this today anyway. I saw “Ready, Teddy, Go!” on my favorite mod culture blog which is really worth subscribing to, especially if you’re a lonely mod in the US:
Here’s what they had to say about our bear:
Meet “Ready, Teddy, Go” a hand-made, hand-painted figurine brought to you by The Bradford Group. Wearing the traditional parka, suit and penny loafers, our hero is sat astride a heavily customised red scooter. This little piece of art would love great on the mantelpiece, and may spark debate as to whether a ‘Ted’ can also be a mod…perhaps one for the modabilly in all of us then. Reddy Teddy Go retails at Â£19.95 and is available from The Bradford Groups website.
And here’s what the Bradford Group had to say about our bear:
Meet â€˜Ready, Teddy, Go!â€™ â€“ heâ€™s the perfect Mod and he loves nothing more than feeling the wind in his fur as he rides his scooter on the open road to Brighton.
Heâ€™s got the scooter â€“ heâ€™s got the look
Striking a pose in his trademark parka, he looks the part in a suit made to measure and black loafers buffed to the perfect shine. His classic red scooter is customised with an impressive array of headlamps and proudly displays the Union Flag. With a spare tyre on the back heâ€™s prepared for anything â€“ nothingâ€™s going to ruin his day.
Sculpted with amazing attention to detail, each teddy is a little work of art and comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity attesting to its status a an exclusive edition. Whatâ€™s more, every bear is hand-painted, making it a collectable one of a kind!
