I have to admit I have a few collections. One of my favorite designers of fine bears and dolls is R. John Wright of Vermont. He does extremely detailed work with natural fibers such as wool felt, mohair, alpaca and silk. The Toy Shoppe carries a wide selection of his pieces and works well even with the most discerning collector's taste. The March Hare was released in March 2009 after a lengthy wait. Due to the complexity of production and design, Mr. Wright will often take anywhere between a year or two to release an announced edition. They have started a blog showing behind the scenes photos of their production process.
