Join us for a Teddy Bear History Tour

Visit or invite us to discover over 100 years of teddy bear heritage. We are going to show you how collector teddy bears were made and are still made in the same traditional way with movable limbs. We will talk about the Steiff Company in Germany and the bears they do make “with the button in the ear”. We are going to look at some old teddy bears and also new Steiff Replica teddies.
We also give you a talk and presentation about our own hand-made Mohair teddy bears.You will have afternoon tea with us in the Silver Bear Centre or on a sunny day outside in the garden or greenhouse.

The Teddy Bear Heritage demonstration can be booked all year round.

You also have the option to add on one of our hands-on workshops and take your handmade teddy bear home with you.
If you prefer to rest in one of our greenhouses while the other group members are busy with their hands you still have the option to take one of many teddy bears home from Bear Essentials teddy bear gift shop.
