August 2017


14thHi Bear Club Members,

Can you believe it is now 14 years since we opened the doors to our “new” Teddy Bear Showroom, well it snuck up on us too and we were so busy with our huge end of Financial Year sale that we all forgot that July 26th, 14 years ago was the official opening day of our huge specialty teddy bear showroom.

certainly rings true as it hardly seems that so much time has rushed past since then, no wonder I am feeling OLD!

We have been so busy “growing the business” that’s the official term for having fun selling teddy bears that time really has flown, we have now helped over 33,000 members adopt over half a million bears and animals, we’ve made a lot of new friends, made a lot of memories and had a wonderful time doing it too.
Not bad for what started out as a semi retirement business when we retired from the hectic life of running our huge Sleep Doctor bedding and furniture business in Penrith.


hugsIn this tough economic environment where statistics show that 80%
 of new businesses fail in their first year and that only 1 out of 10 survive the first 5 years it is encouraging to see that a business built on passion and good old fashioned values can survive, or in our case really flourish, but it takes a lot to achieve this and it is not something that we could do on our own.

We value our members as more than just customers, you have become our very extended Teddy Bear Family and we recognise that it takes both of us to keep the business growing.

We need you to keep giving us your Friendship, Loyalty and Money (very important ingredient) and in return we give you friendship, outstanding service and value for money plus enough bear hugs to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy for life.

Okay, I know some of you are wondering “what’s this guy on, with all these hugs and stuff” and you see yourself as just a customer who bought a bear as a gift, well sorry it was you who fell through our looking glass into our teddy bear realm where we refuse to be just ordinary, boring and the same as every one else.

So if you are feeling overwhelmed by all the hugs then use your scroll wheel to skip all the fuzzy stuff and get right into the specials and discounts, after all if we can send enough bears your way you too will find that this bear collecting thing really grows on you and you too will eventually feel the fuzziness.

We are pretty pleased with our 1st fourteen years so we have decided
to treat our members to some extra discounts all this month

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

For as long as I can remember we have always had Bearington Bears but sadly as they say all good things must come to an end.

Sadly the Australian distributor for Bearington Bears has decided to retire so the Bearington ranges will no longer be available in Australia.

These bears all beautifully dressed to match each season with many quirky designs along the way have been a source of much pleasure for many of our collectors who waited patiently for each new season to be released.

Up until last year we could count on Bearington to deliver a great new collection every 3 months but suddenly the company changed direction s or philosophies and they stopped being so regular with only a smattering of new designs available.

I am distressed to see yet another great traditional bear making company disappearing from our market and in many cases from our industry, as the demand for traditional toys like dolls and bears is slowly being pushed aside by online gaming and electronic toys we are in danger of losing this industry altogether.

It is a sad reflection on society that children no longer are encouraged to go on great imaginary adventures with their best teddy bear friends and use their imaginations to experience all types of fantastic wonders, after all it is all too easy to slap on a headset and disappear into a virtual game instead of having to think ourselves.

Why not treat your self to a few Bearington treasures before they are all gone, all this month you can have 14% off

Project2Very Limited Edition of 25

That is correct, only 25 have been made for worldwide distribution and the edition has already sold out.
We were quick to respond to the release but were only able to secure 3 to offer to our members in Australia.

We are pleased to offer this very collectable extremely
limited edition bear from Hermann and due to the very low numbers he will sell out in a flash and become a sought after collectable on the open market ensuring his future value as an investment.

Made of high quality mohair with traditional excelsior filling this 33cm little honey bear also has a German made growler voice box, his bright flowers are set with genuine Swarovski Crystals. He is fully jointed and comes with his Hermann certificate of authenticity.
3 only available $359

This special animatronics bear from Gund sings Happy Birthday to You whilst doing a bit of "chair dancing"
Press the button in his foot and off he goes, when he is finished singing he then blows out the candle on the Birthday cake
The sturdy mechanism from Gund has proved very reliable over the years, he even has replaceable batteries included. And the price for a quality piece like this is excellent, at only $79.95 he makes a great Birthday Gift for anyone If you would like to order one please follow this link to our online catalogue




With almost all the 2016 back orders now filled Charlie Bears are really getting organised with regular deliveries of the new 2017 plush bears and animals like the impressive Lazarus Lynx
Some plush designs we only received an initial burst of a small number of our orders with the balance to follow.
Hopefully this “new” system will alleviate or even better eliminate the really long and frustrating delays we have sadly become used to with Charlie Bears.

The plush bears that have arrived recently are

Alison - Andy - Annabelle - Anne
Berwick - Brenda - Chica - Glade
Fenella & Faith - Griswald - Jago
Layla - Lazarus - Margo - Nellie
Nikkita - Nina - Peeps - Stretch
Tatum - Tegan - Trudy - Twig

Some designs were only part deliveries so we needed to allocate members pre-orders on a first placed first delivered basis, if we have not contacted you to say yours has arrived then it is still coming and we will be in touch when it does arrive


A few more of the ever improving Bearhouse animals have arrived, I am quite impressed with the detail and quality in
tarongathis affordable budget range from Charlie, they keep getting
better each year.

New Bearhouse designs just arrived are

Kenya Giraffe
Paignton Red Panda
Taronga Koala


New 2017 arrivals in the mohair designs this month have arrived but sadly after filling pre-orders we have none to go on the shelves, this is a result of the huge popularity of the mohair designs that almost all our allocations for this years designs have been pre-ordered well in advance of their arrivals.

We wish we could have a bigger allocation as we could have sold 3 times what we are getting but as global demand increases there are less bears for each country to go around making the pre-order system even more important to members if they do not wish to miss out.

masterNew Isabelle Mohair arrivals are

Chillstar - Dempsey
En Garde - Forbes
Masterpeice 2017

Again only part of our allocation has arrived with more on the way, all stock of these 5 designs were sold out on pre-orders


If you have pre-orders not appearing on this list please do not harass us about when they are coming as we do not know, we will advise you as soon as we get any information.


If you wish to look at any of the now hundreds of amazing designs currently available you can see them all in the following Charlie Bear categories...
