Our CeleBEARation Bear

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce one of our bears, The CeleBEARation Bear. It too is a Memory Bear although this teddy holds inside it a heart that is somewhat of a time capsule. 
When we started the Eddy Bear Company my first born son was only a few months old, I took one of the very first bears we got and embroidered his name, date of birth, weight, length and time of birth on the teddy's paws. Inside it I wrote a letter to him. Today almost 7 years later I can't remember exactly what that letter said but I do know that within this letter I tried to explain to him just how much I loved being his mummy and how much joy he had brought to me in the short time that we had been together.

The Eddy Bear Story featured in TAKE 5.

We were so excited this week to finally have our story featured in issue 5 of Take 5 Magazine. I truly believe that its the story and heart behind our business that resonates with our customers. We can empathize with them in their grief as we too have been there.

The primary goal behind our business is to make a living by helping others. We believe in the power of our bears and love that we can not only share them with the world but also that we are able to share our story with the world. I love that its part of our daily business to speak about my father and share what a wonderful man he was, just as we love hearing about all the people that we are making bears for.

Truly Personalised Eddy Bears

Over the last year we have had many orders for our teddy bears, and we are yet to have a customer that didn't love their very own 'Eddy Bear'. Every now and then we receive an order that requests something a little different....

We have made Beareavement Bears with all sorts of coloured embroidery and ribbon combonations, sometimes a particular color can really represent a persons memory. We have been asked to embroider a rose and a butterfly picture on the bears paws because  obviously those pictures meant something between their loved ones and them.

Sharing the story of our bears.

Both Tracey and I are very new when it comes to "running a business". We never thought in our wildest dreams that we would end up in the industry we are in... and loving it as much as we do. We sort of just fell into it as a way of keeping the spirit of my father alive. 

I have appointed myself as the writer of the company just because I love writing and it a good way of getting out of doing to the books (Tracey's task). Since we started the business I have been trying to get our story and our business in the press.
