Corfe Bears is a family business, run by myself, Hayley and my husband Stacey. We are assisted by Lyn, our Chief Bear Minder, who is a brilliant asset to the team and sometimes helped by our two children, Jordan and Jade, who are our apprentice Bear Minders! We pride ourselves on giving you an excellent old-fashioned service, taking the time to talk to you,learning what bears you like, which ones you have and generally getting to know you - our customers become our friends and we look forward to your next visit.
You can follow us on Facebook and keep up with our latest arrivals, new product ranges and special offers. Lucy looks after our Facebook page and website, along with Simon who is our technical department and a secret bear-lover! We would love you to add photos of your teddy bear collections to our Facebook page - our big six foot Charlie Bear who stands outside the shop seems to sneak into lots of pictures too!
When you walk into our Swanage Teddy Bear Shop you will find yourself surrounded by a fantastic and varied collection of over 1000 teddy bears and animals. It is a breathtaking sight, usually followed by comments like “WOW!! - what an amazing collection of teddies!
In stock in our shop and Bear House we have collectable bears, animals and rag dolls from manufacturers including Steiff Bears, Charlie Bears & The Isabelle Collection, Teddy Hermann, Gund bears & animals, Kaycee Bears, Hansa Animals and Dean’s Bears, plus artist bears including Hardy Bears and more.
Our baby safe collections from Steiff Bears, Air Puppy and Charlie Bears offer a great choice of teddy bears, animals & comforters safe for babies from birth and even machine washable. These are perfect gifts for a newborn or for a christening - it is often these special teddies that stay with you for a lifetime!
In our opinion, nothing beats seeing the bear “in the fur” and having a cuddle. We have collectable bears made from plush, mohair and alpaca. If you are not able to get into our shop you can purchase online. We encourage you to call to discuss your requirements and we’ll happily give you advice over the phone - we have cuddled and handled the bears many times and can give information on their feel, limited edition numbers, colour, etc.
