Charlie Bears

We have been stocking the delightful Charlie Bears creations since the company was founded in 2005. We are a 'Best Friends' store. Charlie Bears are handmade bears and friends in either mohair or high quality plush woven fabric.

The Isabelle Collection is designed by Isabelle Lee and the bears are made in the finest German Shulte mohair. These Limited Edition bears have glass eyes, are fully jointed and come with an individual Certificate of Authenticity.


Artist Bears

We believe we have one of the largest collections of artist bears in Britain. On this site are over 300 artist bear creations and the range is constantly changing. If you don't see exactly what you are looking for please check back later in case the stock has changed, or contact us now to find out what is expected soon.

It is also worth checking with us to see if we can arrange for the bear of your dreams to be created just for you by one of our talented artists.




                        Welcome to The Bear Shop of Norwich

We opened our Norwich shop in 1990 and our bears have been available on the Internet since 1998.

We believe we have one of the largest selections of teddy bears anywhere in Britain. On this site we have over 300 artist bears plus hundreds of manufactured bears, such as Steiff teddies, Steiff animals, Merrythought, Deb Canham, Kaycee Bears, Hermann and of course the well-known Charlie Bears in mohair and plush.

This will also tell you how to get in touch with us so we can arrange secure payment and delivery of your bear. We will check on availability and get back to you with delivery cost and details. Your bear can be sent immediately or you can use our free layaway service if you prefer.

We carefully pack and send teddy bears in strong boxes all over Europe, America and the rest of the world! Postage and packing is FREE in the UK on orders over £60 and we are renowned for our personal service.
