The Plush Collection
Or simply, “Charlie Bears” – These bears are classics which are well known and well loved. Charlie Bears are hand-made, and unless otherwise noted, are jointed for fun positioning. Most plush collection bears are suitable for ages 3+
The Minimo Collection
Minimo stands for “Miniature Mohair”. These limited edition bears are created from soft natural fibres such as mohair, alpaca and wool felt. Minimos are smaller, jointed characters, similar to the Isabelle range.
The Isabelle Collection
The creators of Charlie bears introduced this top end limited collectors range using quality fabrics such as mohair. Each bear carries its own certificate, & Isabelle appears in different collections throughout the range.
Charlie bears: What makes them so popular
The take up of charlie bears in the teddy bear market has been huge.
Take as evidence the sale jump in its earlier years from £1.2 to £2.1 million in one single 12 month period.
This can only be achieved through a massive take up by the public and this no doubt started with exposure on QVC, the shopping channel.
One thing that differentiates charlie bears is the unique look of the teddy. Today if you happen to be passing a teddy bear shop, it is very easy to spot charlie bear without even reading the label.
The combinded elements of hair used, such as mohair and alpaco, are part of this difference.
On top of this, tipping is added to the hair by proferssional hair stylsits and then trimmed and shaved to suit the particular bear.
This is a hand made process and is quite different to the mass production techniques of mass produced teddies. It is the reason they stand out and is what underpins their massive appeal to the public.
Our entire Charlie Bears range
Charlie Bears are everyone’s idea of what a soft, cuddly, Collectable should be.
Each has it’s own personality and will be a great addition to your collection or a wonderful gift for a loved one of any age. We have plenty of rare and unique bears just waiting for a new home, and know you’ll find one to love from our bearhouse
The Isabelle Collection of Limited Edition mohair Bears are so beautifully designed that they sell out very quickly, however , as one of the largest Charlie Bear stockists we know you will find one to love and that will love you!
MiniMos are small very cute little mohair creatures of which there are only approx 2,000 of each produced for the world…and again, due to their popularity and price, they sell through extremely quickly.
And of course the Plush collection is just fantastic….. such a variety of colours, sizes and expressions…some standing and some even growling, all at great affordable prices.
Every piece in the entire Collection is fully jointed which allows them to sit and look at you wherever you are, adding character to their expressions.
Each Charlie Bear comes with it’s own individual Name Tag, so it is possible to give a gift which actually has some meaning to the recipient….but when you see it in the “flesh” you will probably want to keep the piece for yourself rather than give it away.
Charlie Bears do not like to be alone , they are sociable creatures who require friends around them…..you will always be able to find a companion to keep them company.
And they don’t need fed or walked and don’t make any mess…they are very content to sit and watch you and what is going on in their new home.
You don’t pick them………they pick you!
