Selling Bears since 1990
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.
To order or enquire about any bear from this site just go to "Contact Us" and fill in the simple online form, or try our new online shop. 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. The people who handle your mail order are the same friendly staff who serve in our shop and who have years of knowledge and experience.
Ordering from us is risk-free. We do not charge you until we post your bear.
We are happy to send you further photos and descriptions of any bear on the site - just ask us. Nothing is too much trouble!
