We first opened in Guildford town centre way back in 1992. As you can see from this photograph, we are a proper bricks and mortar business. So do feel free to come by and visit us in person!
For those unable to drop in, we offer the facility to order either over the phone or online.  In fact, we were the first UK teddy bear business to open an online shop in 1999.
You can order from us with confidence.  We are very proud of our award-winning customer service, having won Experience Guildford's Customer Service Awards in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019!
