D’Lyell Bears

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary! We can't believe we have been 'in the fur' for quarter of a century and still going strong.

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 since 1991 and amazingly(!) still get as much pleasure from it as we did when we started.

We had a fantastic time at Aprils German show in Műnster and it was great to catch up with so many of you and meet new friends. Heather enjoyed judging at the GOLDEN GEORGE competition and we look forward to returning again next year. The only surprise was driving back after the Sunday pack down when it started to snow - a novelty for us! Just back form the Tokyo show where we had a great time. The show was even busier this year and the Saturday was packed with enthusiastic collectors. We were delighted to have been awarded with 'Best Stand' at the show which made us feel very happy considering there were over 250 exhibitors! Once we get back from the Christchurch show we will be busy making more designs for the Taiwan show in November and will update the site as we get the photos done.

We are also delighted to tell the locals that we have booked into many shows around New Zealand. It has been several years since we took our bears and craft kits for a road trip so it will be great to see you all again. Just go to our show page for more information and we have some great new puppets!

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. We live in central Auckland so are easy to get to.

Beary regards,

Heather & Roy
