We now offer smaller teddy bears at lower price points for the customers who don't want to spend £29.99 on a large embroidered bear as they are after a smaller gift. We now offer a range of small and medium teddy bears in many styles and sizes starting from £11.99. We print them using a method called "Sublimation" which means the Ink is absorbed into the fabric when heat is applied. Because we are using this method we can only offer white t-shirts at this time as the process only works on 100% white polyester. We also have a range of promotional bears which you can have your logo or slogan branded on.

We have added some new embroidery thread colours to our bear design tool page which you can choose to be embroidered on your hoodie or on our new embroidered gift tag. New thread colours are as follows:-
Turquoise, Metallic Red, Metallic Blue, Metallic Green, Metallic Purple, Metallic Pink, Glow in Dark (Fluor), Glow in Dark (Pink) and Glow in Dark (Blue)
The Metallic threads are very shiney and look like glitter when embroidered.
Below is an image of the three new Glow in the Dark threads when in the dark. Fluor is just the normal glow in the dark colour so a very very pale green. If order for the thread to glow you need to charge it up by exposing the thread to natural or artifical light. To take the picture below the thread was exposed to normal light for about 30 seconds and as you can see glows really bright. This thread would look great on a childs bears, especially as a bedtime companion.

In order to offer our customers a little more choice we have added some new teddies and snowmen to our range which can be purchased separately or personalised with one of our hoodies or embroidered gift tags. These new items have not be manufactured by Ready Teddy Go but other UK companies. They are still of high quality and have been fully tested to comply with EN71 and carry the CE Mark. This way we can test new designs and colours of bears that we can then manufacture ourselves at a later date.
Below is an image of some of our new additions and our full range can be viewed here.
