Famous Teddy Bear Brands

Famous Teddy Bear Brands. Why are brands so important to our daily life? We do buy branded products all the time. Not just luxuries products but even our daily bread is branded. Why do we buy a particular product over another one? There are lots of reasons, taste, look, feel or identification with the brand value of a certain product.

How To Care For Your Teddy Bear

How to care for your teddy bear. We want to keep our teddy bears at their best, but not all of us are quite sure what to do. ”Put them in the washing machine” is always the answer we get from the children here at our Teddy Bear Workshops. But should we? Fine for towels and socks, but DEFINALTLY NOT FOR TEDDYBEARS. !!!!!!!
