Contact The Teddy Bear Shop

United Kingdom

This unique shop is home to a huge range of traditional and limited edition teddy bears, Cheeky Bears, Punkie bears and unusual Merrythought soft toys from hobby horses to hippos. All of the current collection are in stock as well as a number of rare discontinued items and shop exclusives.

Within the shop is a small museum with some of the earliest Merrythought and Farnell teddy bears (dating back as far as 1909) as well as many other characters created by Merrythought over the years.

Of course all of the bears have been made onsite in Ironbridge.
