ROYALS TO VISIT BLUE MOUNTAINS

Royal VisitTheir Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George will visit the Blue Mountains during the Sydney leg of their trip "down under" from April 16 to 20.

The visit was announced on Monday by NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell.

Blue Mountains, Lithgow & Oberon Tourism chairman Daniel Myles welcomed the honour: "I am very proud that BMLOT was invited to assist in the arrangements for the visit to the Blue Mountains by the young royal couple.

"It is a wonderful secret a very small and tight-lipped group within the official regional tourism organisation has kept faithfully for some time. Of course we are delighted it has now been revealed and excited at the prospect of the royal visit.

"The Blue Mountains is one of the most recognisable, not to mention magnificent locations on the planet.
It is fitting that one of the most recognisable couples in the world visit it."

The Blue Mountains has been a favourite royal tour location for almost a century.

NANA’S TO PRESENT A SPECIAL GIFT
13193-7_00-freiTo commemorate the Royal Visit Jan & I are organising through Blue Mountains Tourism to present one of the special Hermann Baby Prince George Bears to the Royal Family.

We are very pleased to be able to offer this gift to the Prince which now will not only commemorate his birthday but also his first visit to Australia, who knows we may even inspire him to become an avid teddy bear collector when he grows up.

Hermann Coburg of Germany have created this special edition to celebrate the birth of a future King of England.
This bear is the latest in the series of bears relating to Prince William and his bride Catherine the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Prince George is a highly collectable bear and is made of a thick curly white German mohair filled with high resilience polyester fiber.

This beautiful baby bear is wearing a collar embroidered with tiny blue flowers amid lots of gold and the Royal Crown.

His paws are embroidered with the edition number and his birth details and he comes with a Hermann certificate of authenticity.

With only 500 made worldwide only we were only able to secure a limited allocation for Australia, we now have only a very limited number still available so be quick and order now if you would like to add one of these highly collectable 33cm bears to your hug.

In our experience Royal bears are always a good investment and at only $399 this bear is great value..

Click here to order Prince George or click here to view other Royal Bears in this series including the Wedding & Engagement editions plus the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge special releases all of which will increase in popularity and value due to the Royal Visit.

DISNEY AT NANA’S TEDDIES
Look who came to visit Nana's Teddies last week

It was the Saturday Disney crew, the shows host presenters Teigan, Candice & Nathan accompanied by their producer, director and film crew descended upon us for what I would have to say is the most unusual and fun experience we have had in the store for a long time.

They were on a four day stay in the Blue Mountains filming upcoming episodes in a special Blue Mountains feature that will air over several weeks, they visited iconic tourist attractions including Jenolan Caves and Scenic World and of course no trip to the mountains would be complete without a visit to Nana’s Teddies & Toys who were one of their must see places.
While they were here they filmed a full segment for the show and believe me I am looking forward to seeing what actually goes to air, keep an eye out for many of your favourite bears who make cameo appearances with the shows stars.

Of course, all the teddies had to get into mischief that day but then some of them joined in on a big group photo.

We are not sure when our bit part will be on television but as soon as we know the dates it will be on air we will advise all our wonderful friends so that you can enjoy watching Hilary (Teigan) & Urg (Nathan) having fun with the bears.
Also Candice's dare was every bear lovers dream, she was tasked with collecting 30 bears in 30 seconds with hilarious results, this segment ended up needing several takes as everyone was in stitches and the bears kept messing up their part in the challenge.

The picture below show the cast and crew with Jan and I plus lots of bears in a big Saturday Disney group hug!

PRAMS ON SALE
DSCN0469
In the past few years it has been increasingly difficult to source good quality prams and cradles at a reasonable price.
There are fewer manufacturers now and the prices have been going up, also the cost of freighting them has increased dramatically making it un-viable for Australian importers to bring them into the country.
We have just landed a huge indented shipment with our biggest pram supplier Lusan and have some of the most popular models now available at the best prices we have been able to offer in the past 10 years, so if you would like a new pram or two or maybe a nice cradle to display your teddies & dolls in there has never been a better time than right now.

Scroll down to see pictures and details of all the designs we have on offer at amazingly low prices.

 

CHARLIE BEARS MAKE HEADLINES IN UK

Charlie-Bears_2796675cA couple of weeks ago one of Britain’s leading newspapers The Telegraph ran a very  interesting article on Charlie Bears that I think all collectors will  find very interesting and informative.

In a very frank and open interview Anna White, Enterprise and property correspondent spoke with William Morris and wrote this extremely enlightening story that opened my eyes even further about the amazing way this now world leading teddy bear maker came into being.

As it is a bit of a long story I will not post the article here but instead provide the following safe link directly to the article in the newspaper for members who are interested, I do recommend it as a good insight behind the scenes of Charlie Bears.
The picture shows William Morris with the largest Charlie Bears ever made.

Enjoy, Regards Dave

My first PandaCHARLIE BABY - The very popular series of “My First Charlie Bears” has now been expanded and features 6 really appealing new pastel colours - Custard Yellow - Lilac - Meadow Green - Pebble Grey - Powder Blue and Soft Putty.

All the new colours come in 2 sizes and with the new lower prices on the new range they are even better value for what I believe is on of the softest, cuddliest and nicest teddy bears in our baby and children’s range.

Also just released in the “My First” series are two colours in a really adorable “My First Panda”, I like these so mush that I have added 1 of each to my vast Panda Collection.

Travel buddies group eTRAVEL BUDDIES - This series was introduced last season with 6 cute little bears named after famous explorers, they come in their own travel box styled a bit like an old shipping crate that they can have a nap in while they are traveling the world with you.

FLORENCE COLLECTION RARE #1 PORCELAIN DOLLS

More designs added to our catalogue
nicoleWe are pleased to again be able to offer our Doll Collectors another very rare and unique opportunity to adopt some extremely rare and retired collectable dolls that have not been seen in shops for many years.

We are selling these #1 dolls on behalf of the designer of the Florence Collection Mark Jones.
Due to recently moving his business to a smaller premises Mark can no longer maintain his showroom museum so is reluctantly offering these rare #1 dolls for adoption by discerning collectors.

These beautiful porcelain dolls are the number #1 in the edition from the now retired Florence Collection ranges from years gone by.

They are packed in a Florence Collection box and have an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.

These dolls have been on show in a glass showcase in the Mark Jones Designs museum showroom.
All the dolls are in perfect condition and complete with all accessories as they were originally designed.
Some of the boxes which were stored in a warehouse for the past 10 years or so have some fading and minor creasing due to being stacked.
This minor damage to some of the boxes in no way affects the value of these rare dolls.

#1 issues in an edition are highly prized by collectors and always realise higher resale values than others in the same edition.

These rare #1 dolls are offered on a first in first served basis as obviously there can be only one #1 per design.
You will need to be quick as #1 editions are rarely if ever offered up for sale, they are normally retained by the designer.

I have set up a catalogue section for these dolls which you can view and order from by clicking this link
