Build a Bear at
The Wonderful Bear Emporium.

We have a selection of over 20 cuddly bear friends to choose from - traditional teddy bears, cats, dogs, elephants, tigers, monkeys – designed in the UK and suitable from birth.

To build a bear, once your important choice of bear has been made, it is time to choose a wishing star and place it inside your new bear – not forgetting to make that big wish as your bear is born.

Make your own bearHelp us to stuff your new friend - you can choose how soft or firm your bear will be, and operate the foot pedal to add stuffing from our machine.

Next try to think of a name for your bear – we will produce a ‘birth certificate’ showing the owner’s name, the bear’s name, and the place and date of birth.

Make your own bear

We also have ‘bear dressing rooms’, so if you would like to dress and accessorise your new teddy bear this is your opportunity to choose from our extensive selection of bear clothes, outfits, shoes, sunglasses, hats... why not try on a few different selections to see what suits your bear best?

Take your dream bear home and remember to look after it as well as you can. Many people bring their bears back to buy outfits, or you can do this at our online store. Dressing your own bear is a lovely finishing touch, and gives you the chance to really personalise your new friend.
