The BearsAll of the teddy bears and their accessories found on this website are designed and handmade by me, Victoria Allum. The materials used in the creation of these bears are sourced from specialist teddy bear making outlets from around the world. Materials used include German mohair, alpaca, glass eyes, wool felt, linen, polyester fibre and woodwool stuffing, steel shot for added weight and cotter pin joints. Each bear is individually crafted and as such is "One of A Kind". However, varyings combinations of designs, mohair and accessories may be repeated at anytime. I have made every effort to be as accurate as possible with product descriptions, however all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements noted on this site are approximate. PleaseNote: Due the nature and materials used my products are collectable handmade items and are not intend for children under the age of 14
