Nina has just arrived. Thank you so much. My fourth Charlie Bear from Corfe Bears. So well packaged. Corfe Bears is definitely my favourite company to deal with. Another faultless service. Thank you.

Seraphina arrived today, from all the way across the pond. I must say, she is even prettier in person, and the perfect size (and weight) to carry around on a lazy day. 5 stars to Corfe Bears, for excellent, timely customer service- even during the holiday craze.

Hi Jade and lovelies at Corfe Bears. Thank you for sending out Woodroffe and Sandy…..WOW! Charlie Bears have done a superb job, they’re beautiful, especially Sandy, she’s such a pretty bear. Thank you also for Hakatan, beautifully packaged as always so thank you Stacey!

Just wanted to say thank you. I’m so pleased with the Charlie Bear Margot that I ordered. First time ordering from yourselves and definitely will not be the last, brilliant communication, delivery exceptional and price outstanding. I am literally over the moon, as it was for someone who is going through a hard time at the moment. I have to add, I fell in love with her too. Will be keeping my eyes peeled in the new year, as I have some special birthdays in the family to buy for.

I cannot thank you enough for the phone call to tell me that a cancellation was made for Charlie Bears - Macchiato. I got an email saying your stock had arrived and couldn’t believe how quickly I received my little bear in a cup. THANKYOU is a small word, but it means a lot. Excellent contact and speedy service. I have had a few bears from you over the years and had no complaints. Just wish you weren’t so far away from me here in Scotland.

September 2018

I wanted a Charlie Bear for my mum and a good friend recommended you. I ordered Julian at night / early morning on Sunday 2nd of September 18. I wasn't really expecting a quick service due to the time and date I ordered him, but the next day around lunch I received confirmation that Julian was already in the post and on his way. I was quite shocked but so happy at the speed of the service provided by the staff at Corfebears. Today he arrived in the morning post safe and sound he was packaged up well and in a fabulous condition. Fast reliable service provided by Corfe Bears would definitely recommended them 10/10.

Corfe Bears is one of the biggest bear shops, which is run by our small family team and this brings a lot of benefits to the business.  However, this means that we work really long hours and hardly get any time off, so over the Christmas & New Year period we’ve taken the decision to have a well earned break and visit our relatives in Scotland.

Therefore, any orders placed from Thursday 20th December (After 1pm) to Friday 28th December will not be posted until Monday the 31st December. This may sound to be quite a while, but during this period a number of the days are either weekends or Bank Holidays and we find most customers would prefer their bears to be kept safely here, rather than be caught in the postal system during the holiday period, especially as a lot of people are also away themselves.

Sorry for the delay in processing orders during the festive period, but you can be assured that for the rest of the year, most orders are sent out on the day that they are received and usually arrive the next day.

Have a great Christmas, Love & Best Wishes from Stace, Hayley, Lyn & Jade xxx


27th OPEN   10-5
28th OPEN    10-5
29th OPEN    10-5
30th OPEN    10-5
31st NEW YEARS EVE    10-5

If travelling to us, then please kindly telephone beforehand to check that there have been no changes to these opening times.

Charlie Launch Update - All Images Available!!

Great News!! Charlie Bears have just released all of the images for the new 2018 Collection! We have just updated our site, so you will now be able to view every new bear.

We have also provided a detailed description for every new bear and in addition there is a note of the anticipated quarter that each bear should arrive with us. Charlie Bears have provided these dates to help us all plan a little better, but at the same time they have reminded us that this is just an indication and they will do their best to keep to this, but of course there is always the chance that something happens or causes a delay that is out of their control.

New 2018 Charlie Bears Collection Just Launched!

The new Charlie Bears Collection for 2018 has just launched on our website, but before you take a look, please note:-

We have been informed by Charlie Bears that this year the Bears are being launched in 4 separate quarters throughout the year.

This means that although we have listed and described every bear in the collection, at this time, we have only been permitted to show the images for the Bears that form part of the 1st Quarters collection e.g. more images will be released by Charlie Bears at the start of each quarter, throughout the year.

At present, the only way of seeing all the images for the whole collection is by viewing the Collectors Catalogue 2018.

Supplies of this catalogue will arrive with us next week (w/c 5th Feb). For anyone local to us, we do have a copy in store that may be viewed.

For every new bear in the new Charlie Bears Collection, we have provided a description so that you have an idea of whats coming later in the year. As always, every bear can be pre-ordered and of course we’re happy for you to contact us to chat and find out a little more about a particular bear, but as previously mentioned the only way of being able to obtain an image for some of the bears, is to get your hands on a catalogue or wait until Charlie Bears launch that particular Bear!

The idea is that if a photo of a Bear appears, then that bear is due to arrive with us during that quarter, so hopefully helps you to plan a little better. Charlie Bears will do their best to keep to this schedule, but sometimes delays occur that are outside of their control, so please note - This is not definitely guaranteed, and the dates provided simply give an indication of when you can expect that bear to arrive.

Just leaves me to say, Happy Browsing!!
