It is a fun shop with a variety of items including books, toys, stuffed animals and just fun items for children. It is crammed with items and it would take days to get through it all so visit frequently and be open to ideas.

The TBF has moved. It's still listed as open but the company has moved. While in business, I had the opportunity to visit the business and select the clothing, iron on patches and just so many choices to personalize your teddy bear purchase.

The factory moved to Missouri. It was a nice place to take kids and visiting friends and family but, that's a long drive now.

Owners up and moved production out of state. No idea if they have the tours in Missouri. Final days were in December, 2014.

This was an interesting place as I had no idea that it existed until seeing a billboard along Interstate 94. I purchased a couple of bears with my grandchildren's names on them to use as gifts. It also has a display of historical items, some of which are rare and not seen often.

There are billboards advertising "free factory tour" so we took our 4 year old because he loves to see how things are made and loves stuffed animals. Did not realize this would be a 15 minute history lesson on the teddy bear, come to find out that they do not assemble most of the bears in the USA and the... More

This is mostly a retail store that sells teddy bears that are made in Indonesia. Apparently you can make one on Saturdays but there are expensive. Glad we did not go to Chelsea just for that but it is across the street from Jiffy Mix tour so no biggy to go there.
