Oh come on, you know you need this little polar bear in a Santa cap! He’ll clip to any tree, even a live plant such as Norfolk Island pine. Let him be the finishing touch on a decorated tree, or allow him to stand alone as an accent (he’s pretty cute peeking out of a stocking). Any way you style him, his fuzzy presence will make the holidays a little warmer and cuddlier.
