christmas_stockingsHi Bear Club Members,

Another year has almost run it’s course and what a year it has been with so much happening in the world.

At Nana’s Teddies we have seen a few quite times and other days when we have been run off our feet but the year overall for us has been good with a pleasing steady growth of our Collectors Club and our business in general

It has been a tough year for many in the world with Bushfires, Floods, Earthquakes, Wars and even Terrorism, hopefully the Christmas Spirit will embrace the planet and we can enjoy some peace and goodwill and for those who have suffered may Christmas bring some comfort and a brighter hope for the New Year.


christmas_4As always the Teddy Bear industry has been a source of comfort and enjoyment for many and this year we have seen some truly amazing bear designs come and go.

Sadly we have seen a couple of manufacturers close and a number of retailers as well but the industry is still quite vibrant in spite of the slow retail environment with some companies like Charlie Bears showing unparalleled growth with great designs and a real point of difference that has captured the interest of thousands of collectors around the world.

So to see the current year out we have decided to offer members an early Christmas bonus by doubling your normal members discounts on everything in store until Christmas Eve. 
You must type DOUBLE DISCOUNT in the promo code box to qualify for this extra discount

This is a great opportunity to top up those Christmas Stockings and maybe add a few more teddies under the tree

You may have heard that the huge shipment of Isabelle Collection Mohair Bears that was due to arrive in November had been delayed.

Due to circumstances out side the control of any one associated with Charlie Bears, the ship they were coming on was refused unloading permission in Australia and had to return to it's last port in Singapore to have all cargo moved to another ship.

Well we are now celebrating the arrival of this new ship which docked on time and after clearing customs we are pleased to announce that the first of 3 major deliveries will arrive into our store this week

The first to arrive will be the mohair Isabelle Designs followed in a few days by the 1st of two plush shipments which will top our stocks up with plenty of fabulous teddy bears just in time for Christmas




I have now confirmed that the following designs will be in this next shipment arriving this week, if you have any of these designs on order we will be in touch as soon as we sort out who belongs to who to organise getting them home to you.

Some designs have sold out but we do have limited quantities of some of these sensational bears available for adoption.

Bingo - Dibble - Dufuos - Enzo - Fiddlesticks - Harper - Jim Jams
Isabelle Masterpiece 2012 - Lullaby Marlowe - Minty - Mitchell
Montague - Potter - Ragtag
 Sapphire - Selwyn - Serenade
Tattycoram - Tigerlily - Watson
 Blyton - Doolittle - Munroe
Mr Brownlow - Cutie Pie - Percy - Tiffin





If you have pre-orders for designs not appearing on this list please continue to be patient, please don’t ask when they will arrive 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 designs arriving in this shipment you can still see them in the Charlie Bears for Pre-order only section of our catalogue until we actually receive them, after that they will all be transferred into the Charlie Bears in stock category, click the links below

half_offOur huge
Cherished Teddies Sale

ct13780 - for you mumCHERISHED TEDDIES
I have both good and bad news for our collectors, particularly for those into Cherished Teddies.

The Bad News -
No more Cherished Teddies for Australia

Whitehill & Co the Australian Distributors along with the UK distributors have announced that due to falling demand
bought on by the Global Financial Crisis that it was no longer viable for them to continue importing the Cherished Teddies ranges from Enesco, this decision means the end of Cherished Teddies in Australia and England and will have major worldwide ramifications on the future production of these collectable figurines.

The need to produce these figurines in high quantities to keep the prices reasonable, the high cost of shipping such heavy items, warehousing costs and the dedicated staff required to administer sales are all factors in the distributors decision to no longer support the range.

Many retailers in Australia stopped carrying them in the past few years which has also effected the sales potential and
viability of these and many other product lines.

The Good News -
We are having a Massive Clearance Sale


50% off all Cherished Teddies Designs

Hundreds of designs to choose from

ct14199 - nancy evaWe have done a deal with the distributors to clear the last of their stock holdings at heavily discounted prices.
That combined with our already huge range means that when this sale started we had over 9000 Cherished Teddies being cleared at half their regular prices.
The choices are vast as we have hundreds of designs available, some are recent releases and some are hard to find retired
designs but all are amazing value.

The clearance sale is being held both On-line and In-store, for our internet customers just add all the designs you would
like to the Enquiry Cart and use the Promotional Code
CT SALE we will then check stock availability and get back to you promptly with your discounted price.

In store we have set up a couple of huge trestle tables laden with bargains, as well as what is listed in our on-line catalogue we have a big selection of designs that are "last ones" that are not viable for us to spend the time putting them on line, the costs involved in photographing, processing and creating on line entries for these "last ones" is greater than what we sell them for.

So if you want a great bargain make a trip to the shop as soon as you can for the best selection, the Sale is on now and will run until we clear all stocks.

ct14874 - rachelThe sale is open to the general public as well so if you know any Cherished Teddies collectors who are not members of our club do them and us a favour and let them know about this massive clearance.

If you are not a CT Collector you may still wish to take advantage of this sale as Cherished Teddies make fantastic Christmas Presents and stocking fillers and at these prices you can't go wrong.

Sale is on now and ends when all stocks are sold

Be quick for the best selection

Here's how this sale works:
Click this link to the Cherished Teddies catalogue and add all the designs you want to the enquiry cart.

2. Enter the Promotional Code CT SALE in the promo code box
