Teddy bear hospital

Teddy Bear restoration and repair

 I have my own Teddy Bear Hospital where I can repair both new and old teddy bears with great care and attention to detail. 

From replacing an eye, ear or nose, covering worn paw pads or a total overhaul with new stuffing and joints. No job is too small or too big.  All bears are restored sensitively to maintain their authenticity and character, using traditional techniques used at the time.


Call or email me to discuss the work required. You can send a picture of the existing condition of the bear, I will then provide a quote and confirm what can and can't be done.
