This was my fathers Bear when he was a child. It has a hinged neck that opens his mouth. There is a metal tube that leads to his stomach so you can “feed” him. His back has a zipper that enabled you to removed what was fed. He’s 16” from head to toe , his body measures 7” across , arm to arm width is 12” , diameter around belly area is 14”. He has seams on arms and legs , he’s able to sit up without leaning on anything.
