Brynjar the Viking - Teddies of Abbeystowe
Introducing the Viking Teddies of Abbeystowe, Teddies with a Viking twist. These teddies are very cute and very collectible. Unique and exclusive to the Abbey they make a wonderful gift - if you can bear to part with them.
Meet…BRYNJAR (pronounced “Brin-yahr” in old Norse was born in the thriving Viking trading city of Bjørgvin (Bergen, Norway) in 835AD.
Brynjar is a Viking Warrior who proudly carries his traditional Viking shield that he handcrafted during one of the many long, cold northern winters in his frozen homeland. Over the years, Brynjar has sailed the length of Nærøyfjord, where he met and married his wife Astrid and they live in Gudvangen and are raising a family of little Vikings…
When Brynjar and his fellows go ‘a-Viking’ they raid and trade along the north-eastern British coastline bringing back highly prized gold coins, jewels and handwritten books along with exotic food stuffs foreign to their diet.
Brynjar is proud of his Viking heritage and hopes to take his wife Astrid and their little Vikings to visit the British Isles, so they too can experience that new strange world.
