2 – Traditional Teddy Bears
The teddy bear was first introduced by Margarete Steiff in 1903. Snapped up by buyers in America and Europe it quickly became a huge success. Today it is a part of almost everyone’s lives. With most of us having at least one teddy bear while we were young, traditional teddy bears are still popular Christmas gifts – often cherished for many years to come.
3 – Paddington Bears
Paddington, the marmalade-loving, duffle-coat wearing bear from Darkest Peru, has to be one of the most famous teddy bears of all time. His well-meaning, but often disastrous attempts at helping the Brown family are still loved by children today. Our Paddington bears soft toys make timeless Christmas gifts for all ages. They are ideal to bring Micheal Bond’s stories to life while reading to children too.
