He is so appealing and looks so realistic as he can be positioned on all fours. He can be put into a variety of natural poses such as on all all fours, lying or sitting. He is one of a kind as he is Tomas (P1) - he was a one off limited edition  prototype made for when this model was introduced into the catalogue for 2016. He has two material Bear Bits tags on his leg one that says \"Bear Bits\" and the other \"This Very Special Bear is (and then handwritten) Tomas P1 1\/1\".

Tomas has the classic, naturally shaped Bear Bits embroidered nose combined with a gentle open mouth, brown glass eyes, quilted 3D pads and a tail.
