There will be discounts on the entire Deans ranges and if you are looking for some great value teddy bear gifts you cant go past the newly released Distinctly Deans Range of very cuddly collectable teddies.
They are amazing value for limited edition bears but with the extra discounts being offered for this event most of these designs will be under $100 after discounts.

We will also be giving members the chance to win a very rare Deans Limited Edition Mohair Centenary Bear valued at $549 when you purchase any Deans Bears, the more you purchase the more entries in the draw you will have.

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

I am excited to advise that we have now received all our allocations on this new series of collectable plush Deans 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 brand 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.

14 new designs all fully jointed and made from the very best of plush furs available will be the first ambassadors of the Distinctly Deans Collection, they are available for delivery now

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.

This range of bears is being included in the special Deans promotion for this month making them even more affordable!

Charlie meets Charlie



We often receive great pictures from members that we think are special enough to share with all our members.

This is one of those pictures that I found very touching.

It was sent to me by proud new mum Rebecca Taylor who purchased a Charlie 2013 Annual bear for her new little bundle of joy who is also called Charlie.

What a tender and touching image this as as little Charlie slumbers peacefully with out a care in the world whilst his new Charlie Teddy Bear watches over him in a cuddly embrace.

I am sure these two little Charlies will share many more moments and lots of hugs as they journey through life together.

Thanks Rebecca for sharing this awesome picture with us.

If members have any nice moments like this of their teddies, with or without their human loved ones that they would like me to share with all members please e-mail  or post them to me and I may share them in a future newsletter.



Cutie Pie
MINIMO MOHAIR DESIGNS As advised last newsletter we are finally receiving the last of the 2011 Minimo designs.

There is a container due to arrive late this month with the final designs of Cutie Pie and Tiffin on board plus the remaining back order top ups of some of the popular designs we had received previously.

Please be advised that this is the last we will ever get of this 2011 series, once they are gone we can not get any more.
After all pre-orders have been filled we will have a few of each design still available for adoption.

I thank all members who waited patiently for these to arrive, I know it was a frustratingly long delay in Charlie Bears getting them to us but the bears were definitely worth the wait.

I have now confirmed that the following designs will be in this shipment, 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.

Bella Bunny - Biggles Cat - Cora Cat - Tiffin - Tito - Diddles Spaniel
Doodles Terrier - Mini Muffin - Percy Polar - Topsy - Yorkshire Pud
Cutie Pie Angel  - Sugar Lump Angel - Sweet Pea Angel - Twinkle Toes Angel

getpicdata[4]PLUSH DESIGNS No new plush designs coming this month but we are expecting more in the not too distant future, I will advise you when we get any definate news on any of the plush designs.

As promised Charlie Bears have been very busy catching up on their massive back orders, a difficult task when the bears are in such huge demand and take a fair bit of time to be individually hand made.
High quality standards will never be compromised trying to get them made quicker so again patience is the name of the game.
Having said that many of the designs listed below are coming in late this month, well ahead of when we actually expected they would so on this occasion, well done Charlie Bears

I have now confirmed that the following designs will be in this shipment, 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 - Mitchelle
Montague - Potter - Ragtag - Sapphire - Selwyn - Serenade
Tattycoram - Tigerlily - Watson - Wilson



If you have pre-orders 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


Charlie Bears - Pre-order Only

Charlie Bears - in stock now

For our members who may have missed last months newsletters I have included the following two links to our latest video presentations.

Two new Nana’s Teddies TV commercials have just been launched, if you watch any of the Channel 7 regional stations you will probably see them in the near future as we roll them out across the country.
For members who live in the big cities where TV is way too expensive for our meager advertising budget we have uploaded them to our You-tube channel so you can also enjoy watching Jan and a few teddy bear co-stars as they present our latest generic advert and a special one dedicated to all the Charlie Bears we have in stock.








The new range that we sent you a special news blast on last week has met with unprecedented acceptance by collectors with a huge amount of pre-orders across the range, on several designs we have already sold out of our entire allocations and many others are getting quite low.

Because this release is a worldwide edition, not regional like past years and the edition numbers are quite low these bears and animals are in big demand and are going to be hard to get so if you have your eye an any I strongly recommend you don’t wait too long to place your pre-order.


In a TV style presentation William has made a three part video showcasing each of the designs in a refreshing and informative way, if you like Charlie Bears then this presentation is well worth watching.

I have included the link to part 1 and once you have watched it you can just jump to the next 2 parts

deans12251 - centenary (2)For each Deans bear you purchase you will get
1 entry in the special Buyers Only Prize Draw
for a chance to win this highly collectable
30cm Deans Centenary Bear valued at $549
The more you buy the more chances
you will have to win this rare bear

Deans Centenary Bear was created to mark the 100th anniversary of the teddy bear and is a very traditional English teddy made of rich gold mohair.

He wears a special printed anniversary ribbon and has the centenary years 1903 - 2003 embroidered on his foot pad.

He also comes with his Deans Certificate of Authenticity showing his number in the edition, he is #14/2003 so quite a low number

As well as this certificate Deans created a special burgundy colored enameled disc with the Anniversary details on it for this edition, most other Deans bears have a black disc.

We have had him securely tucked away for the past 10 years waiting for a really special occasion to use him for and  and what better occasion than a visit from his creators Neil and Barbara Miller, Deans owners.

The opportunity to win this bear is available to all members either attending the event or purchasing any Deans bears by mail order before Monday 14th October 2013.
The lucky winner will be notified directly and announced in next months newsletter.

I will continue to  feature the huge Cherished Teddies Clearance Sale as a reminder that the sale will continue until all stock is cleared so you still have the opportunity to grab a bargain and maybe save a bundle on some of your Christmas Gifts this year.


Over 200  designs
in stock now

Many of these designs are now retired and really hard to find often you may have to resort to internet auctions like E-bay and pay well over the original prices as these ever popular figurines have captured the hearts of millions of collectors worldwide and once retired they appreciate quite well in value making them a really good potential collectable investments

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 will have major ramifications on the future production of these collectables.

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

ct17004 - segridWe have done a deal with the Australian distributors to clear the last of their stock holdings at heavily discounted prices.
That combined with our already huge range means that we have 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.

ct16267 - tjamesSo if you want a great bargain make a trip to the shop as soon as you can for the best selectio n, the Sale continu es and will run until we clear all stocks.

The 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 favor 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.

50% off all
