MELISSA400Hi Bear Club Members,

This month our Teddies on Parade event promises to be a big and exciting affair, not only are we showcasing ALL our quality brands on Porcelain & Vinyl Collectable Dolls but we are also offering great deals on all Ganz Heritage Bears and the very last of the Ganz Cottage Collectables available.

We are also pleased to be able to offer our Doll Collectors a very rare and unique opportunity.

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.
Due to recently moving to a smaller premises Mark can no longer maintain the museum so is reluctantly offering these rare #1 dolls for adoption by discerning collectors.

#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.

Plus big discounts on offer for all our ranges of dolls for this event.


Don’t miss looking at all the specials in THIS MONTHS SUPER SPECIALS section and in the TEDDIES on PARADE section we have all the details of this months great event and big discounts on all Doll ranges and Ganz products plus our normal great GIFTS WITH PURCHASE and FABULOUS PRIZE DRAWS for you to enter.

Some of the new designs that have been confirmed to arrive in the next shipment that is arriving in our store on Monday are pictured below and are the most stunningly colourful bunch of bears to gather together since the famous Teddy Bears Picnic.

Pictured are Victoria, Mischief who is being very camera shy, Milly and Firework from Catalogue 2012 Part 2, 
Tara & Rufus from Catalogue 2012 Part 1, you can see them all in our online catalogue click here

Charlie Bears have decided to produce only 2000 of each of these designs all of which they have now sold out of so once our shipment arrives we will not be able to re-order these bears. Limiting the number produced has ensured the collectability of the bright colourful designs as collectors are already in a frenzy snapping up these bears before they are all gone.

Coloured Beauties

Other designs arriving with these colourful characters are Bella, Bit Bot,Dib Dab, Doodles, Imp, Pancake, Sherbet Lemon, Sorbet and Strawberry Cheesecake, as usual if you have any of these bears on order we will be in touch to advise they are ready to head home to you.

Skansen the makers of Beanie Kids and other great gift and message oriented bears has just released a really cool range of bears that are a perfect alternative to just giving a greeting card.

This new range has a cute floppy teddy bear available in 3 colours that sells for $9.99 and a big selection of T-shirts that fit the bear with a variety of the most popular greetings or messages printed on them.

The shirts sell for $4.99 so all up you have a teddy bear in a message T-shirt for under $15, each shirt also comes with a greeting card for your personalised message included in the shirt price

Teddies on Parade Event
 7 pm Tuesday 16th October 2012.
RSVP by 3 pm Tuesday the 16th



victoriaWe are pleased to be able to offer our Doll Collectors a 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

Members will get a 5% discount off the prices shown and will also receive FREE a rare and retired Florence Collection plush teddy bear called Benson as a bonus gift, scroll down a bit further for full details and pictures of Benson

The sale on these rare #1 dolls runs until 31st October unless sold out sooner

Internet & Phone orders can be placed until 5pm on Monday 22nd October
