Sadly Boyds Bears are no longer available in the UK. If you are looking for a traditional-style teddy bear we highly recommend Dean's Bears, which are all fully jointed and made from the finest mohair by one of the world's oldest teddy-bear makers.
The Boyds Collection began in 1979 as a small antique shop in Boyds, Maryland in the United States of America. Owners, Gary Lowenthal and his wife Justine Unger soon turned their hands to making reproductions of antique duck decoys, leading to resin houses.
Boyds very first teddy bear was named Matthew after the owners' son. The cuddly teddy bears and animals rapidly became popular and Boyds Bears were born. Resin figures followed, but the plush bears have always been Boyds best-sellers.
Boyds Bears have won lots of awards over the years and have achieved a huge following, with a highly active fan club called 'Friends of Boyds'. Although no longer run by the original owners, the bear-makers are true to the company philosophies - producing cute, collectable and high quality teddy bears and cuddly animals at affordable prices.
