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.
We have been really busy finishing lots of new bears and will be updating the site around October 6th. It always takes us way too long to get new releases onto the web site but we are sure you will be delighted with these new bears!
LATEST EXHIBITIONS - Taipei November 5, Beijing November 12
For 2017 we have 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.
Aprils German show in Műnster was an excellent show for us and it was great to see so many of our customers and meet new ones! We are now busy making for Julys Tokyo show and excited to be returning to Ginza.
We are returning to the Taiwan show in Teipei in November and thrilled to be invited to the first Bear Exhibition in China! This is going to be held in Beijing in November - the weekend after Taipei so it is going to be another busy and exciting year 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.
Heather & Roy
