Christmas in July by R John Wright, Cool down with an.....

.....Ice Cool SnowBaby and Companion piece SnowBear.

This year the first IDEX mid-year show was held at the Rio Suites and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada from June 30th to July 2nd.

The show celebrated the newest doll and teddy bear releases from leading artists and manufacturers from around the world. During the show, there was also a ticketed R. John Wright luncheon event titled "Christmas in July" which took place on July 1st from noon to 2 pm.
On the day of the luncheon event, guests entered the hall which was elegantly decorated for the Christmas season.
Each table featured a petite snow-bedecked Christmas tree around which were festive gold packages tied with red felt bows containing the event souvenirs!
Susan and John Wright greeted their guests and invited them to partake of the sumptuous Holiday buffet.
Following the meal, a professional troup of Carolers dressed in authentic Victorian costumes serenaded the gathering with a spirited a'capella performance of well-loved Holiday standards.
At the conclusion of the performance the crowd was asked to join in a final rousing medley.
Following this program drawings were held and valuable door prizes were awarded to several lucky attendees. Then the moment everyone had been waiting for - the opening of the event souvenir: a delightful "Snowbaby" creation made entirely of felt and dressed for wintertime fun!

Fully jointed with delicately hand painted features and rosy cheeks, this first R. John Wright Snowbaby measures 6 3/4" standing and is outfitted in a sparkling plush snowsuit and hat with tiny mittens dangling from the sleeves!

The companion piece for Snowbaby is a darling original RJW "Snowbear" measuring just 6" tall.
Fully jointed and constructed of sparkley mohair/wool plush, Snowbear features felt paw pads and a unique molded felt face with hand painted detail and inset clear crystal pupil eyes.
Snowbear comes with his very own custom-made handcrafted wooden sled!

The delightful Snowbear with sled will be produced in an extremely limited edition of just 100 pieces. Each will come enclosed in a custom RJW presentation box with red felt ribbon.
