May 2017 Members Newsletter
Hi Bear Club Members,
It’s not every day you get offered FREE bears but today is not just everyday!
It is the 1st day of May and as the history books have it today is often called Mad May Day as the moon is supposed to have the effect of causing madness in some people.
Some do really weird things like fall asleep standing up or they might run around naked in their gardens, others set out on fantastic journeys or decide to change the world we live in.
Still others cite poetic readings on the stairs of public places but May Madness affects me in a totally different way I give away teddy bears, oh, and animals too, in fact all sorts of things.
Is there a catch you might ask, no all you need to do to encourage my madness is to select any 3 bears, animals or other stock item from our huge range that you wish to purchase and I will give you the 3rd one FREE, so pay for 2 get 1 free. Use code “3rd Free” in the promotional code box

WIN A CHARLIE BEARS PICNIC BASKET
This month we are offering all members the chance to win a special Picnic Basket that Charlie had designed as an Easter promotion for the Easter bunnies to displayed with whilst having a picnic.
This cane basket comes with a lining created in the Charlie Bear colours and has a full setting for two people to enjoy a relaxing picnic in the sun. It is nice and deep with plenty of room for some wine, cheese and bickies plus other essential picnic treats
You may even take a teddy or two on the outing as they don’t need really eat all that much although they can be pretty heavy on the pretend biscuits and brownies.
For you chance to WIN this prize simply purchase any Charlie Bear or animal before the 31st May and for each one you buy we will add another entry into the prize draw for you.

BANJO, AUDLEY & DARLING These 3 little bear have been adopted by a family in Canada and have taken the long journey to their new home Their new Mum sent us this lovely note on their arrival
Hello Jan, Just wanted to let you know that my bears arrived safely a couple of days ago. They are even more beautiful in person, Banjo, Darling and Audley make a lovely addition to my collection.
I am so pleased of the service I have received both times I have ordered with you. Your website is so easy to use and your quick response time is exceptional. As well the fact that you will deliver to those of us overseas is appreciated. You have the widest and best selection of Charlie Bears I have seen. Now my 16 year old daughter wants to collect them as well!!
Some may not understand those of us who love our collections, but to me they are a reminder of a simpler time and my childhood and oddly a great source of comfort and happiness.
Thank you again, keep up the good work. Regards, Lawrie Wymark Canada
STEIFF RANGE EXPANDED
We recently had the opportunity to get up close and friendly with a whole new bunch of Steiff Bears & Animals that were visiting Australia as extras and bit players in the upcoming Peter Rabbit Movie being produced in Sydney. These guys were the “Shelf Stock” in the on set Harrods Steiff Shoppe that was used in some of the movies scenes.
Normally we do not bring into Australia many of the Steiff animals due to the freight costs but getting the chance to buy these without the import costs made them quite viable and we were very surprised at just how good the Steiff animals actually are, we should have known this from their bears but with the great animals already on offer here we never made the choice to bring more designs in. The new designs have meet with such approval from our collectors that we will now be expanding our Steiff animal selection
Have a look at our Steiff catalogue for the ones we have from the movie set Direct Link
WE WOULD LIKE YOUR HELP In return I offer you the chance to WIN A $50 Gift Voucher
I would like your help in verifying if our advertising dollars are being well spent or just wasted. I have organised with yellow pages to promote us on a huge variety of social media related sites but so far we have not been able to verify that these ads and banners are actually running, they are supposed to pop up on places that you might visit on a regular basis. They are supposed to be run at random so will not appear on all places all the time but we are promised 75,000 impresions a month so they should pop up quite frequently.
If you visit any of the listed places and see any of the 3 banners pop up please let us know, simply screencap it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org don’t forget to add your member number to be entered in the prize draw.
For each one you find you will get an entry in a draw for a $50 Nana's Teddies Gift Voucher to be drawn on Monday May 8th
NEW 2017 DESIGNS Small shipments have started arriving We have had a small trickling of the new 2017 designs starting to arrive but sadly we have almost none on the shelves as the few we have had come in were already pre-ordered and needed to be sent home to their new families.
As new stocks arrive we allocate to our pre-orders list on the basis of 1st ordered 1st delivered, then if we have enough to complete all current pre-orders for the design then they go on the shelves for sale.
Sadly some designs sell our completely before arrival so they never go into stock for sale, this is becoming more of a problem as more and more collectors have taken to Charlie Bears and the demand is now out stripping the supply.
If you have pre-orders with us 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...
We now have 6 Charlie Bear Categories Click these direct links to our catalogue categories
