Our bears are most certainly fit for a King- well a little Prince :) The Queensland Government actually bought the bear for Prince George as a gift from the people of Queensland- quite a thrill! We were hoping Wills and Kate might pop online and order more - but as yet. Thanks for visiting- especially as you came out of... More

Located on the main highway with plenty of parking. Massive selection of hand made teddies to choose from. Watch as they are machine sewn on-site. Each teddy comes with an individual name and is also added to their register. Teddies range from $100 basic to $290 fully outfitted but great quality and will last your lifetime. Will visit again.

Good to see that there are some people out there manufacturing. I stopped in at the shop and saw a lady going through cutting up the wool fleece from patterns to make them into teddies and what's more they looked great. Well worth a visit.

Thank you for calling in - we do love people to see the process of making a Tambo Teddy- it takes about 1.5 hours from when we get the skin ready to sewing up and then the final steps of trimming, naming and ribboning the bears. cheers Alison More

I was extremely pleased to find this unique business in a small Queensland town. Good to see what a difference a great idea can make to a towns economy not to mention the wool industry. I can highly recommend the seat belt covers. So comfortable and a uniquely Australian gift for overseas which is nice and light to post.

Had heard a lot about Tambo teddies over a period of time, so when passing through called in to get out of the rain. What a nice place, full of high quality locally made teddies. You can watch them being made. The staff are very friendly and so helpful. Highly recommend a visit here if you are passing through Tambo.

Great little aussie enterprise. You can watch the teddies being made whist you are there. Genuine lambs wool, will last the distance. Koalas are gorgeous also. Tambo is a very pretty little country town, worth a stop.

I ordered online some time back - a bear, tea towel and a rug, while in France. It was a learning experience for the staff because the web site was only programmed for Australian buyers.
