What a real pleasure to deal with your business. It is so refreshing to come across people like yourself and Jade, who are obviously customer service orientated. Once again, thank you so much for your help in this matter.

My niece collects rabbits/ hares and I was thrilled to find the lovely Herbs on your website for a very good price and with free shipping - ordered him on Sunday evening and he was here on Tuesday, beautifully packaged and very cute! I will definitely be using your website again for future Birthdays and Christmas - fantastic service, thank you!

Nikkita has arrived safely, beautifully wrapped as usual and just in time for a special Christmas present. Thank you once again for excellent service, considering how busy you must be with a large delivery, I really wasn’t expecting her just yet!

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!!

A Charlie Bears Mina Monkey Keyring (normal retail £9.99) FREE with every Gingerbread Ted purchased from us.

Gingerbread Ted has a gorgeously thick, long-pile coat with ginger and grey tones. He has a sweet, round face, with a bold, hand-stitched nose and twinkling, expressive eyes. He wears a deep red bow that compliments his colouring!

He retails at £68.00 and like all of our bears will be sent by Royal Mail 1st Class. The Mina Monkey will automatically be added to your order and will be received boxed with your Gingerbread Ted.

Filed under: Uncategorized — corfebears @ 1:31 pm


Wednesday 20th Dec is the last Christmas posting day that Royal Mail recommend for Royal Mail24®. It works the same as 1st Class for letters, in as far as they aim to deliver in 1 to 2 working days.

Thursday 21st Dec We will be posting any orders received by 3pm, but of course can not provide any guarantees that delivery will occur before Christmas.

Royal Mail and other delivery services re-commence Wednesday 27th, so this will be the first date after Christmas that we will be able to post to you. In the meantime, I will keep the Bears safe, provide a little company and make sure they don’t over indulge over the Christmas period!

So, just to confirm in between Christmas & the New Year we will be posting 27th, 28th & 29th December and then post will continue as normal, when post services re-open in the New Year.

Just leaves me to say - A very BIG THANK YOU to all of you that have kindly adopted a bear … or 2 …  or even more!!! Your continued support is really appreciated by all of us here at Corfe Bears.

Our shop is open 10am to 5pm everyday in the lead up to Christmas but Christmas Eve, we may be closing early - this will be decided on the day, so please telephone before travelling.

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