- The Great British Guardsman wears the traditional “Home Service Dress,” a scarlet tunic and bearskin. British Soldiers wore the bearskin hat in the 17th Century to add to the apparent height and impressive appearance of these troops both on the parade ground and the battlefield. Great British Guardsman can be seen every day guarding Buckingham Palace or during the changing of the guard. Our Guardsman wears a plush “bearskin” hat and a red tunic with embroidered epaulets. His white leatherette belt has a die cast buckle matching his shiny brass buttons. Each Great British Teddy Bear is fully jointed and handmade from the highest quality plush and stands 11 inches tall. Every Teddy Bear and their costume has been tested to exceed all international toy safety standards.
