About Us

Our Story Started in 1981 when our founder opened a cart on Church Street in Burlington, Vermont and began selling Teddy Bears that he made in his garage. Over thirty-five years later, our Bears continue to be best friends, members of the family and beloved heirlooms. They are made with care from soft, premium materials and designed to give hugs that last a lifetime.

Guaranteed For Life

Vermont Teddy Bears and animals are designed to be well loved for generations, which is why they are made with durable materials and fur that can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. If something more severe happens, our animals all come with a promise of repair or replacement and can be sent to our Bear Doctor for repair, making it truly yours for life. See care instructions on hangtag for more details.

Bears That Care

It is part of every Teddy Bear’s nature to give you hugs when needed, provide courage when you need strength and dry your tears with warm smiles. This is what we mean when we say love is in the Bear. The Teddy Bears in our Bears That Care program go the extra step by bringing awareness and support to organizations that do amazing work.
