Panda Bear at the Old Soul Spa

I have a new little friend at the Old Soul Teddy Bear Spa. This sweet little 1940s Panda Bear has come for a visit. He will have his eyes tightened, nose and mouth threads repaired, fur cleaned and fluffed and a new/replacement bow (just like his original I hope). He wants to say Hi to his Mom and let her know that he is doing just fine : )

This is the "before" photo

He will be ready for his "after" photo in October.

Good luck with the restoration of the old Panda, Karen.

What a lucky bear he is staying at the Old Soul Spa and I can't wait to see his new look.

Hi Karen, This is Teddy's Mom...are there new pics for me? Is he almost ready to come home?? Hugs, Susan. Lemon Wolf Bears.

Hi Susan, Your Panda has had two cleanings and I think two more are in order to lighten the cream fur. A light ivory would be nice :)

I will aim for a mailing date of October 24th ~ one more week. I will post my progress photos on the weekend.

Hugs, Karen

My hubbie had one of these. I found one recently and purchased it for him! They are so cute. You did a great job at the bear repair!

so CUTE!oh I love pandas and indeed visited them twice!
Here I bought a cuddly panda bag (L) that I can hardly put it down!
I believe it is a GREAT find for every panda fanatic!
