D'Lyell Bears

D’Lyell Bears

Welcome to our world of bears and other friends. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Roy and I have been making bears in Auckland, New Zealand since 1991 and amazingly(!) still get as much pleasure from it as we did when we started.

In 2017 we decided to do something Heather has always wanted to do - Bed & Breakfast! We would be delighted to welcome you to our home to see where the bears are made. Our (almost!) restored 1880s villa is our pride and joy in the leafy central suburb of Mt Eden so if you are travelling to Auckland or have family/friends coming here please think of us. See more information on our About Us section. This has been VERY popular, especially since listing on the Booking.com site under Auckland, the Grange where you can see availability etc.

We are excited to be returning to Aprils Teddy Bear Total show in Munster, Germany. This is the worlds largest teddy bear show and it will be great to return and meet up with our collectors and friends again. In July we will be at the Tokyo Teddy Bear & Friends show which will be held at a new location. We are looking forward to exploring the Asakusa area! Our final shows for 2019 will be in Taipei and Beijing which are always very enjoyable for us.

We have also been very busy designing new bears and friends for Charlie Bears in England. It is wonderful to see so many of our designs in their catalogue and getting such a great response from collectors around the world.

If you are in Auckland you are always welcome to pop in to see us in our studio where we have a small showroom. Just give us a call first to make sure we are here and not away travelling with the bears. 

Beary regards,

Heather & Roy
