Hi Bear Club Members,
With Winter upon us there has never been a better reason to cuddle up with your favourite teddy or two or maybe add a new teddy bear member to your hug.
We have some great new bears available for you this month, a special offer on all our fabulous Hermann designs, some new additions to the Distinctly Deans Range and of course updates on the very popular Charlie Bears,
I would also like to ask your indulgence by sparing a few minutes to read about a special little girl who is only 6 years old and battling with cancer, her story is quite moving and when I was made aware of her situation by one of our club members I just felt I had to help.
So Nana’s Teddies has joined “Eva’s Fight For Life” and asking for your help by spreading the word, you also have the chance to win a delightful Charlie Bears “Tony” - see the story further down in this newsletter.
Pictured is Eva with her radiation companion bear Ashlee who’s job it is to supervise proceedings and keep her company in the radiation room and by the smile on Eva’s face Ashlee is doing a good job.

DEANS - 3 NEW BEARS OF DISTINCTION DESIGNS
I am pleased to announce that Deans have added another 3 designs to the Distinctly Deans Range of bears.
Thoughtful, Lucky and Cheerful have joined the original 14 bears in this very affordable range of bears.
This superb value range of plush teddies are a new initiative of Dean’s who not only are making their normal mohair collectable bears but they have just released this popular new range of collectable plush limited edition bears to compliment their line up.
Each design is limited to only 200 pieces all individually numbered on their certificates of authenticity and they are fully jointed making them possibly the most affordable collectable range of bears we have had in quite some time.
This new initiative is a welcome venture which will bring the traditional heritage of Deans into a price range that will surely add a new generation of fans to Britain’s Oldest and most respected brand.
Pictured is Cheerful - A sort of inquisitive bear for all seasons!
Cheerful is made from a traditional straight beige coloured plush.
His pads and paws are stone coloured ultrasuedette and a tartan ribbon is really all he needs.
Oh yes! - he is looking for a good home
He comes with a certificate of authenticity showing his number in the edition of only 200 bears.
The Distinctly Deans range of bears was created in plush fur rather than mohair to give collectors a more affordable option.
Only 200 of each design will be produced so they will be quite collectable and being very well priced starting at under $100 they will be snapped up quite quickly.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAN
The love of my life celebrated her 57th birthday on Friday 20th June and guess what was on the top of her Birthday wish list?
If you guessed teddy bears you would be 100% right, she presented me with a long list of Deans, Hermann, Steiff and Charlie Bears to select from, in fact her wishlist was so long that if I got her all of them we could start another shop.
So I settled on a couple of nice mohair bears, a surprise visit to her other favourite shop Pandora and a nice drive in the mountains and lunch at a quaint little cafe.
Unlike the Jan in the Yellow Pages advert my girl is a
“Very Happy Jan”
