Please read the relevant item descriptions, as we have different washing instructions for different items, as some are hand wash only.
I’m afraid you can only design your own top if it goes on one of our bears, as we cannot sell the personalised tops on there own. However if you have purchased one of our bears and would like some spare tops, then please contact us, as we can do this.
We do not sell to trade. We do however offer promotional bears for companies at competitive prices and there is no minimum order, so we can cater for schools, nurseries, small and large companies and charities too. We can even print your own graphic designs on bears for you to sell in your shop or add to hampers or gift baskets or even nappy cakes. Large orders can take 2-4 weeks to be made and sent out, as we usually need to order the bears in for larger orders. Please contact us with details of any tight deadlines, as we still might be able to help or suggest an alternative bear, which we have in stock or can order in quicker. If you would like to order a large quantity of any of our other products eg. drawstring bags, mugs or towels, then please contact us for our best price.
