R John Wright announces a wonderful new creation for.....

.......the summer of 2008 !!!

We are pleased to announce a very special upcoming collection of Goldilocks & the Three Bears! from R John Wright.

One of the all-time favorite childhood stories, it tells the tale of a little girl renowned for her golden locks.

While on an errand for her Mother one day, Goldilocks strayed far into the woods and discovered a well-appointed cottage with no one home. Out of curiosity, she entered and spied three bowls of porridge set out on the table. She tasted each and finding the smallest bowl's contents just right, she quickly gulped it down. She then tried out the three chairs and settled on the smallest breaking the seat through! Feeling sleepy, she ventured upstairs where she sampled the three beds. The smallest was so comfortable, she soon fell fast asleep. The occupants of the cottage, a family of three bears named Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear, returned to discover that someone had been in their home. Baby Bear was most distressed to find his porridge eaten, his chair broken, and after searching upstairs, a small girl asleep in his bed! Awakening with a start, Goldilocks bounded out of the cottage and ran safely home.

Goldilocks & the Three Bears from R. John Wright was specially commissioned by Puffin Publishers in the U.K. for an exciting new photo storybook by award-winning author Lauren Child.
The doll and bears were carefully designed to be posed inside a fully-furnished custom-made cottage. The photographs were taken in a real woodland setting by acclaimed photographer, Polly Borland.

"Goldilocks" by Lauren Child is expected to reach bookstores in November, 2008.

R. John Wright's Goldilock's doll is constructed of the finest all wool felt. She measures 12 1/4" tall and is fully jointed for playful posing.

Goldilocks premiere's a completely new face mold with delicately hand painted features. Her golden curls are made of fine imported mohair and her sculptural, childlike hands are sewn with individual fingers.

Goldilocks is dressed in a cotton summer dress with a hand smocked bodice and dainty Swiss lace trim. She wears custom made stockings, fine cotton undergarments, and hand cobbled red leather shoes. On one arm is a handwoven basket filled with daisies - realistically constructed out of felt.

Goldilocks will be produced in a limited edition of just 500 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
As part of the Goldilocks & the Three Bears Collection, matching numbers will be available to the bears in the series below #250.

The Three Bears will make their debut on this Web site soon!
