General Information

All the teddy bears and friends are designed and handcrafted by Wendy or Megan. We use high quality fabrics for our creations, some vintage fabrics and trimmings, seed beads and flowers.

Some of our fabrics are hand dyed which means that some variation of colour may occur as dye lots vary. Computer monitors and digital cameras vary considerably in their presentation of colour.

NB: These miniature teddy bears and friends are all collector’s item only and are

not suitable for children.

Purchasing & Payment

Prices on our website are in US Dollars. Payment to be made through Paypal, if you do not have a Paypal account you can checkout as a guest and make payment by card. Postage charges are included in the total amount due when logging into Paypal. For UK postage charges please e-mail and I will send you a payment request. Please ensure that your address details are correct, we will only post to the address shown on the Paypal payment confirmation when purchase is confirmed.



Layaway is available over a two month payment plan on request.

A Paypal payment request will be sent for the first partial payment which is due immediately and is considered a non-refundable deposit.

The balance of the purchase price will be due at the end of the following month and a further payment request, which will include postage, will be sent.      

If the second payment is not made, your layaway will be cancelled without refund of the initial deposit.


All our items are packed with care and posted from a smoke free environment. Shipping will be as advised on the sale page. As Paypal does not offer alternative postal charges the cost will be for international mail and we will refund the overpayment if necessary. Please note that items are posted immediately that payment is cleared, however we have no control over postal service delays. Parcels are sent 'signed for' and confirmation of the tracking number will be e-mailed to you.
