When you turn into our driveway, you are greeted by a wide open campus that stretches for acres. As you approach the front of our building, you are welcomed by maple trees, picnic tables, Adirondack chairs and our signature rainbow-colored silo and timber frame style-building.
All visitors enter our building through our Bear Shop, which features our Bears, Vermont-made products, and an area where you can create your own Bear. You’ll want to take a tour of our factory, with one of our Bear Ambassadors who will guide you through a fun, informative tour where you’ll watch our small group of craftspeople creating our Bears by hand, one-by-one. You’ll even see our Bear Hospital, where you'll get to meet our Bear Doctor, Dr. Nancy. If your Bear ever needs repair, Dr. Nancy will take care of everything.

Meet Dr. Nancy
Did you know we have a Bear Hospital at Vermont Teddy Bear? All of our Bears are guaranteed for life and Dr. Nancy is the one who fixes them (right on our tour route!) so they can be sent home for many more years of Bear Hugs.
We have lots going on, from Teddy Bear Picnics to community celebrations. If you are looking for something delightful for the whole family to do, check out our Events Calendar and come have some fun with us!
