Teddy Bear Hospital Advice

Plush animals, such as teddy bears, are often prized possessions. Children may carry the same teddy bear or plush with them their entire young life. Many adults, as many as half, may even retain their most treasured squishable friend from childhood as they grow and age. Unfortunately, as with anything made of fabric, teddy bears and other plush toys can wind up damaged through the course of daily life.

Bear Essentials Personalised Teddy Bears

Bear Essentials Personalised Teddy Bears are such a lovely idea to mark special occasions because you want to remember them and cherished them forever. Here at Bear Essentials we are often asked if we can make Teddy Bears with the clothes from a loved one that has passed away. We appreciate that this is a very special request. Whilst we would not attempt to make a soft toy out of fabric from clothes nevertheless we can offer you to make clothes for a Teddy Bear instead.

14th of February is Valentines Day

Valentine's Day has somewhere a connection with St.Valentines but I am not sure that many people make that connection at all. Even so it is celebrated in many countries it always seems to us more like a commercial idea. Not that there is anything wrong with spreading love, more the association between love and spending money on that day seems to be improper. What do you think?

Teddy Peters Hospital Letter November 2017

My name is Teddy Peter. I am 34 years old and belong to Stacey, who has probably loved me a little too much! The Family got their first dog the beastly “Bonnie” four years ago, and I have suffered considerably ever since.
