Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated her first story in 1893 in a private letter to a young boy who had been unwell for some time.  She had 200 copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit printed privately - they sold out within 2 weeks!  The book was professionally published in 1902 and has never been out of print since then!

The characters of Beatrix Potter’s books have become beloved friends to children for over a century.  Peter Rabbit (who was named after Beatrix’ own pet bunny rabbit!) and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, Peter’s friend Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddleduck, Mr Tod the fox and so many more.

Designed based closely on Miss Potter’s original illustrations, these Beatrix Potter toys are faithful representations of the stories’ animals that will bring the books to life for young readers and inspire fond memories in slightly older readers!

Artist Bears

A little about the Artists…..

Ellie Bears

Ellie Bears is one of the latest additions to our collection of skilled and varied Teddy Bear Artists. Like most creators of teddy bears there is a tale behind how this artist began designing and making one of a kind bears and animals and Ellie Covell’s story is a particularly interesting one…

First, cast your mind back to Rod Hull and Emu the ostrich. Back (a few years!) when everybody loved Emu Ellie saw an advert for a hand-made emu, promptly ordered one and was very disappointed with the item that she received. Being pretty handy with a sewing needle herself, she made an emu of her own - and was very happy with the result. When Emu went to work with Ellie he was a hit and suddenly she had orders for her own ostriches!

Emu eventually caused Ellie to leave her part-time job, as she was making so many various animals that she didn’t have time for it any more. Then came a big order from the Greyhound Racing Association for the hares that lead the races at all of the greyhound racing tracks. Ellie made hundreds of hares that went to tracks all over the UK.

On one occasion when buying fur for more hares, Ellie also purchased a teddy bear making kit - and that was it, she was hooked on making traditional, jointed teddy bears and eventually had to pass on the hare-making to her daughter-in-law so that she could pursue teddy bear design and creation full-time.

Ellie has been making ‘Ellie Bears’ for over 16 years now. They are all limited editions of no more than ten. Ellie uses both German and English mohair, depending on what the bear calls for. The pads are made from real suede and each bear has an ‘E’ for Ellie Bears embroidered on one of their feet. They are stuffed with a careful mixture of polyester filling, plastic pellets and steel shot to give the perfect combination of squashiness, scrunchiness and a good weight. The teddy bears are made with traditional, high quality wooden joints.

We think that Ellie Bears are irresistible - they have such expressive faces and they are made with extraordinaray attention to detail. We are particularly fond of the very contemporary Alex Meerkat in his velvet smoking jacket and cravat, and Twinkles with his gorgeous warm honey and dark brown fur, huge feet and an imploring expression. Some of our new collection from Ellie Bears have actually been adopted before they had appeared on the website for more than a day, which is a suitable reflection on Ellie’s fantastic designs!

Deb Canham

Deb Canham is a teddy bear artist producing limited edition bears, mice, bunnies, dragons and more.  Deb specialises in highly detailed miniatures from just 1 ¼” and designs virtually all of her many ranges personally.  She began making miniature bears in 1987 and in 1996 created her own design company producing limited edition pieces that appeal not just to teddy bear fans, but also the figurine and collectables world.

Deb’s little works of art were produced in China, not in a factory or by a big corporation, but by a group of twelve Chinese ladies who Deb taught to sew over fifteen years ago, and made her teddy bears and animals since then- a far cry from mass production!

Recently Deb has ceased producing her miniature, limited edition bears and is instead focusing on even smaller editions which she is making herself. We have been lucky enough to secure a wonderful selection of her miniature bears and animals, which are now available to buy here!

These bears were released as long ago as 1998 and limitations start from just 30! As you can imagine these bears are highly collectable and sought after. Many of the certificates have been signed for us by Deb, and a lot are now completely sold out with Deb, so this is the last chance to buy them!

We hope you enjoy browsing this special collection of bears, who won’t be sitting around for long!

Alice’s Bear Shop

ALICE’S BEAR SHOP

Rikey Austin first created the stories and characters of Alice’s Bear Shop over 20 years ago and she tells the stories of the bears and how they made their way to Alice’s Bear Shop.  At the time they were hugely popular, both as cuddly companions and stories to read but unfortunately, due to circumstances out of Rikey’s control, the production of this amazing range ceased.

After a chance meeting between Rikey Austin and Charlotte Morris of Charlie Bears, these two creative and imaginative women decided to join forces and bring back the magic of Alice’s Bear Shop!!  This is a great collaboration, combining Rikey’s talent for designing and illustrating and Charlie Bears experience of manufacturing, quality, safety and ethics.  Rikey is still the creative force behind the range and so after 2 years of planning, Alice’s Bear Shop will make it’s welcome return in October 2018, with all of the original characters, including Woodroffe, Cobby, Sandy, Captain, Tat and Little Lost Bear.

As well as the storybooks, there are also additional sets of clothing, Art Prints, and Pin Badges, with further characters to follow……………so are you ready to open the doors of Alice’s Bear Shop and join in the fun of this magical world??
