It’s nice to see a candid picture of a bear to use alongside their official portraits to help you choose your next addition, or a gift. Here’s some nice big photos of Charlie Bears Fabian bear, taken by Stace in our Bear house. (more…)
Here’s a cute shot of Oodles sitting in Stace’s chair at our Bearhouse - she looks pleased to be out of the box and relaxing! (more…)
Easter is on the way! Rather than the usual chocolate eggs with extravagant packaging, why not give a gift that will be treasured for years to come? We’ve got lots of sweet cuddly animals that represent spring and new beginnings - there’s one for all ages and all pockets!
Lambs can be seen in the fields around Swanage and Corfe Castle right now - they’re a joy to watch as they gambol and skip! We’ve got lambs for babies right from newborn in the Steiff Baby collection - they’re all free from harmful chemicals and machine washable. There’s cuddly Steiff Flocky Lamb with dangling legs and one of our favourites, alpaca Linda Lamb who is so realistic that it’s like having your very own lamb living at home! (more…)
Charlie Bears 2014 collection of brand new plush teddy bears will launch tonight (Sunday February 9th!
If you’re a night owl, please join us after midnight, when we will get our hands on the bears’ official portraits and start adding them to our website, but please bear with us (no pun intended!) as this will take a little time.
We are taking pre-orders on the new Charlie Bears main plush bears collection - no deposit is needed and you can place your pre-order online. We take a limited number of pre-orders so that we can hopefully fulfill all pre-orders on the first delivery of each bear.
Charlie Bears Bearhouse collection will also gain several new members! These bears are un-jointed, suitable for all ages from 18 months and machine washable! They are also limited in production to 2000, and the first collection from 2013 is almost all sold out.
Charlie Bears also have surprises in store, so enjoy browsing the new bears….and more!

This cute picture of a very relaxed Charlie Bears Shreddie was taken by Stace recently. It’s always nice to see an extra picture of a bear ‘in the fur’! (more…)
We took this picture of Jayden for a customer - who snapped this particular bear up! But we thought it was worth showing another portrait of this fabulous panda. He’s beautifully soft and his colours are a little warmer than they appear in his official photo. (more…)
Here’s a lovely picture of Charlie Bears Caleb panda, sent to us by an avid collector, Terri. It shows him with a softer expression than his official portrait and also gives you a good idea of the depth of his lovely plush fur. (more…)
