Choice Award Winner
The company was started in 1998 by the Stray family who at the time worked in sales for other companies. Their love of teddy bears and the desire to own their own business drove the creation of the company and their passion for the business continues to this day.
Quality is high on the list when you talk about a Bearington bear and as such the company has won over 100 industry design awards in only 15 years.
The look of these delightful bears is also highly prized and indeed every bear must have the company's own unique soft and friendly look and have maximum detail put into every bear. So much so that as soon as you see one of their bears you will exclaim, "It MUST be a Bearington".
The Bearington Collection consists of several soft toy ranges:
Traditional Teddy Bears
As the name suggests these bears look and feel like the tradition teddy bear we have all come to love over the years.
They are undressed bears but all come with a rather fetching ribbon around their necks. Well every stylish teddy bear needs a little something, don't they?
Fashionably Dressed Bears
These bears fall into four different categories:
The Bearington collection also prides itself on producing some more realistic bear and animal designs which they also have incorporated into some accessories such as hats and bags.
This is a range of other animals and creatures designed as soft toys to appeal to perhaps a very young audience. These include playful puppies', lean beans and Stout Sprouts with sounds.
The company is based n USA and as such most of their bears are sold there via retail outlets. However these teddy bears are collected the world over and so some can be purchased second hand online.
