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. !!!!!!!
