This bear loves music, singing and dancing. Rosie is inspired by the many narrowboats that navigate BirminghamÕs canal network and the traditional folk art that adorns them. The flowers are painted in a traditional style with a bee buzzing around – leaving a golden ÔheartÕ trail on the bear’s chest. The bee is a nod to this bear’s other name, the honey bear, and highlights the plight of the honey bee.
