We are a small family owned business run by myself, Nicola and my husband Phil. When we can, we get the children involved too. It was my hobby that, well, got a little out of hand as we loved so many of the bears available. I started doing them for friends and family originally and then a few pictures got onto Facebook. From there I started getting a lot of requests for different animals and designs. After a short time I had to buy another machine and train the Husband so I could keep up with all the requests. For Christmas 2020 I helped a CHD charity by embroidering a special design on to some bears that were taken into the children's heart ward of a Newcastle hospital. The bears were given to the children as presents to bring some joy at a difficult time. It brought so much happiness to the children I did it again for Christmas 2021 and am again raising funds for Christmas 2022.
My Husband and I have 6 children between us, well 7 if you count my husband too. Personally I think he is the biggest kid as its now he who tries to keep all the bears. My 2 younger children are always helping get the bears ready to go to their new forever homes. Don't get me wrong they much prefer them coming in than going out. They are over the moon when something goes wrong and they get to keep the bear themselves.
We both aim to make the perfect bear for you. If you have a design in mind just let us know. we are happy to keep making changes until its just perfect for you. We can embroider names, special messages, birth details, really anything. We have even done a marriage proposal by bear, they said yes so all was good.. phew! If you check out the gallery page you will see our latest work. We have completed some amazing bears with ideas from those that have bought them. We love nothing more than sending one of our lovely bears to their new forever home knowing they are going to be as loved as we love them. Yes the husband would keep them all if he could!
We will always be growing and will keep our eye out for new products that we think you will love and where possible can be personalised. We recently added a range from Jomanda. The hot water bottle / pajama cases have become really popular. If there is something you are looking for and can't see it please let me know and I will see if I can source it for you.
We both hope you enjoy looking at all the bears on the website. We always welcome feedback and love to hear from you. We even love hearing from the bears we have sent to their forever homes. Its lovey to see them so happy!
