This is a inexpensive demonstration of how the teddy bears are produced. A sales pitch throughout the demonstration but the manufacturing process was also demonstrated very well. See it if you have kids or grandkids who would like teddy bears

The production floor was not running, but the tour still went on. They explained how the bears were made and you got ot see the equipment. They you could "Make" your own bear or buy one that is already made. Great for kids.

We took some kids to this place and they were amazed. The tour is actually really informative and interesting. And seeing things being made was a really neat experience. The bears and accessories are not cheap in price, but they are also not cheaply made...More

We went on a rainy day and it was a little busy but the whole place is too stinking charming!! Creative tour and educational on their building process. Hard to walk out without a bear.

The bears are already made you can just buy clothes or buy a bear already clothed! The bears were expensive, the ones I saw were 80-90.00 each! Arrive by 1pm at the latest or you will miss the last tour.

I believe so because they have lifetime warranty on their teddy bears and I believe they do international. I will suggest you to visit their website or call them directly. Good luck.

No reservations required, and this time of year you won't have any crowds to deal with. You might get a personal tour. I did in early Sept.
