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!) restored1880s 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.

2018 is proving to be a very busy year with summer being especially busy with guests from around the world. This is the reason we have been a little slow in updating the web site but we are sure you will be delighted with our latest Bears of Yesteryear collection! We will be exhibiting at 5 International shows and are excited to be returning to the Swiss Sigriswil show in August after missing it for way too long. Hopefully we can see lots of our European collectors there?! See more on our Shows list.

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
