Steiff Little Circus Baby Collection

We’re delighted to introduce Steiff’s latest collection for babies! Steiff’s Little Circus range includes cute characters, made from unusual and pretty fabrics, that both babies and parents will really fall in love with.

The materials used to make Steiff Little Circus Baby toys are not confined to the usual Steiff plush. Many of the animals are made solely from 100% cotton, which is certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 standard as safe for babies from newborn. This safety certification guarantees that the materials do not contain chemicals that may be harmful to babies. As we all know, babies’ toys spend lots of time in their mouths so it’s reassuring to know there are no nasties for them to chew on. Steiff’s famous button in ear and yellow label are also safe for babies.

A brand new material that features in this collection is viscose made from bamboo, which can be found in the bath gift set and changing mat set in a 60/40 combination with cotton. This fabric is relatively new and very environmentally friendly. Bamboo grows quickly and in dense plantations; it requires less water than trees and produces 30% more oxygen. Also, growing bamboo does not require chemical fertilisers or pesticides, so the resulting fabric is not only better for the environment, but also safer for adults and children alike. Bamboo fabric is also silky soft and very absorbent - a super-fabric we hope to see more of!

In our Steiff Little Circus range you will meet an elephant, a turtle and teddy bears in both blue and pink. The patterned fabrics are a great look that will complement any nursery. All of the toys and gifts are machine washable, so the toys can be well-loved and washed over and over again.

Our particular favourites include Steiff’s Little Circus Blue Teddy Bear - a lovely bear with a plush tummy and patterned cotton limbs and SUCH a sweet face! We also particularly like the Little Circus Elephant Gift Set which includes a squishy elephant rattle and a soft bib made from bamboo and cotton - the set arrives packed into a smart Steiff suitcase and will make a very special gift for a new baby or parents-to-be.

Brand New - Charlie Bears Keyrings!

Charlie Bears keyrings have been the subject of a blog post before now! We posted back in 2010 about the first range of keyring bears which were very popular but unfortunately were discontinued some months later.

Well they’re back! Charlie Bears Bag Buddies are a brand new collection of ten five inch bears, pandas and animals with metal keyring clips. They could be clipped to your handbag, a schoolbag or your keys making them much easier to find! Or, of course, they could just sit on display with your other bears.

Each of the exquisite miniature characters is fully jointed just like the plush and mohair Charlie Bears. Each has it’s own personality which they show off with their accessories - beaded necklaces, ribbons and bells. They all have a strong metal bag clip so there’s no fear of them falling off on your travels.

There’s something for everyone in this new range. In total there are four bears, four pandas, a mouse and a monkey! You can browse the keyrings below, but we must say there is a fantastic selection of long and short-pile plush and gorgeous colours. Amazingly for such tiny creations, they are all hand-made, including their little stitched noses and their accessories.

We think Charlie Bears have surpassed themselves with this collection. There’s a lot of bear detail for a little price! Demand is high so please keep an eye on our Corfe Bears Facebook page for details of deliveries

Pre-order Charlie Bears with Corfe Bears

Just a little note to let you know how we organise our Charlie Bears pre-orders.

Sometimes you might be disappointed to find that we are not taking pre-orders on a particular plush Charlie Bear, even though he or she isn’t retired and we are expecting more stock. The reason is that we know that we all hate to wait for our bears! If we take 30 pre-orders it’s very unlikely we’ll get enough of that bear on our next delivery to fulfill all of the orders. So some people have to wait until the next time, which could be a long time coming.

By limiting the number of pre-orders we take, we hope to ensure that as soon as we receive a Charlie Bear we will have enough to send to everyone with a confirmed pre-order. Then we’ll open the books again and take more orders. (more…)

Charlie Bears Signing Event at Corfe Bears!

We’re very excited that Charlie and William of Charlie Bears will be visiting us on the 26th of May 2012 on the Great British Bear Trail for a Charlie Bears signing event! And they’re bringing with them a very special, limited edition signing event Charlie Bear called Farthing.

Harmans Cross Railway Station *

Our shop is very full up with bears, so to fit more collectors in we’re taking our Charlie Bears to the lovely village hall in Harmans Cross. It’s just a short trip by car from Swanage, with plenty of parking available OR we highly recommend you take the steam train! The journey from Swanage to Harman’s Cross takes you through the beautiful countryside of the Isle of Purbeck - and Harman’s Cross station is right next door to the village hall. If you enjoy the steam experience you could continue onto the village of Corfe Castle to visit the ruined castle which has protected Purbeck since the medieval era. (more…)

We are delighted to be celebrating the forthcoming Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton with this fantastic, limited edition pair of teddy bears by Kaycee Bears.

The Royal Wedding bears have both been hand-made from beautifully soft curly kid mohair in warm winter white.  Kate has been airbrushed around her paw pads, nose and eyes with burgundy, which matches her flower.  William is airbrushed by hand with royal blue.  Each of the fully-jointed bears carries the trademark Kaycee Bears crystal in their cashmere paw pad.

Charlie Bears 2011 Collection Part 1 Launched Today!

It’s here!  Charlie Bears 2011 Collection Part 1 is now live for you to browse and pre-order the bears of your choice - or make a list to ‘accidentally’ leave lying around for someone to see!  There are some fantastic additions with limited editions, lovely pandas and some rather special bunny rabbits!

We are treated to three limited edition Charlie Bears in this collection - Charlie 2011 is a ‘plumo’ bear made from a clever combination of plush and mohair fur.  She will only be available during 2011 (and likely to sell out before the end of the year) and she is named after Charlotte Morris, founder of Charlie Bears.  William IV (the 4th) is of course named after Charlie’s husband William and is also a plumo bear, limited to just 4000.  Puddifoot is also a limited edition of 3000; he is made from exquisite Belgian Tyber plush fur which is unbelievably soft.

For the panda fans we have the gorgeous Yvette who is bound to be extremely popular, along with George who is the biggest of the pandas, Phoenix with his beautiful colours, wild Xena, dainty Tracy, the impressive Quentin, pretty Naomi and the lovely chocolatey Caleb.

Charlie Bears have used some new kinds of plush fur in this collection.  The first is warm and long and cuddly and a little bit wild!  You can see the new fur on Grant, Merlin and some of the pandas.  While Parkin and Torquil have a lovely curl to their fur.

There are some BIG Charlie Bears to choose from - Trevor is a grizzly bear with a wise face, Tony has gorgeous bright yellow paw pads, Michael is a ‘tickly toes’ bear, Hamish has thick, warm fur, as does Ballantyne and Lita is the largest lady bear.

The littler bears are not likely to take a back seat - Tess, Olly, and Molly; and you must have a look at Kitty and Shreddie’s beautiful, unusual fur.  Dolce and Philip maybe related with their lovely patchwork fur.  The smaller stars have to be Riley and Parker with their magnetic paws - they can be posed in all different postions including covering their eyes!

Charlie Bears fans are likely to see a family resemblance in Cody who has a similar look to the very popular Chocolate Fondue Isabelle Collection mohair Charlie Bear.

Finally the piece de resistance!  We have three gorgeous bunny rabbits joining the Charlie Bears family!  Thumper, Caitlin and Cotton Sox are fully jointed, plush bunnies with great long ears that are poseable!.

We’ll certainly have trouble choosing our bears from this Charlie Bears 2011 Collection, so we wish you the very best of luck too!  XX

Kaycee Bears - Adorable, Affordable, UK-Made Artist Bears

We are very excited to introduce the fantastic Kaycee Bears.  Designed and made by Kelsey Cunningham - a well-known name in the UK teddy bear world - this is Kelsey’s very first collection of plush bears and we are delighted to be one of the very first stockists.

Kaycee teddy bears are made from plush fur with luxurious cashmere pads on their feet.  All of the materials are sourced in the UK and the bears are made by hand by a very small team, including Kelsey’s Mum and Dad!  They are traditionally jointed and each bear features a pretty, trade-mark crystal at the back of their ear.  Kelsey personally finishes all of the bears, including airbrushing and shading.
