The company of Farnell & Co is of unparalleled importance in British toy history. Founded in the early 19th century, it created Britain's first teddy bear, as well as the bear that inspired Winnie the Pooh. Kathy Martin tells the story of Farnell here for the first time: it is a tale not only of highly prized teddy bears, many illustrated here, but also of business triumphs and setbacks, family rift, devastating fire and untimely death.
