Deans of England celebrate their 110th Birthday this month

Join us as we acknowledge this incredible milestone in teddy bear history as Britain’s oldest and most respected teddy bear makers celebrate one hundred and ten years of producing some of the most beloved and collectable toys and teddy bears.
We are marking this special event by launching the new 2012 Spring/Summer Collection of wonderful new bears including a special edition of a 110th anniversary Deans Bear.
Full details and big discounts for this event are later in this news letter in the Teddies on Parade section.

NEW RELEASES
Hermann Coburg of Germany are famous for their amazing dressed bears. Herman Christmas 2012
Depicting famous people and events Hermann Coburg bears are still right at the top of our list of the best collectable bears in the world.
The fact that they take a lot of time in the designing of the costumes for the bears makes collecting them really interesting as every bear is truly unique and stands out in a hug.
Hermann have just announced their latest designs and we will have all the details and pictures for you soon, the new designs will include their very sought after annual Christmas bear plus a couple of other really nice Christmas themed bears, I will have them all on our website within the next week as soon as I get the final landed prices sorted out so you can order them.


Edition numbers are are much smaller this year, Hermann like most bear makers around the world have tightened their production in response to the slump in the global market, particularly in the UK and the USA where over 80% of the worlds teddy collectors live.
This is good news for serious collectors to a degree as with smaller editions comes greater demand and as such higher resale values should you ever bear to part with any of your treasures.

Teddys Bear 110thThere is also a very unusual version of “Teddy’s Bear” based on the original caricatures of the little mountain grizzly bear that President Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot, this incident resulted in the toy bears being created being names after him, hence the name Teddy Bear was adopted.
This special bear has been created to celebrate Teddy’s 110th birthday and is created in style of the first American Teddy Bears from 1902.

He is called Teddy's Jubilee Bear 2012 for the 110th Birthday of the Teddy Bear 1902 - 2012
This 33cm bear is made form quality German Mohair, filled with Excelsior and has a growler voice, he comes with
an Information Sheet on the story of how the Teddy Bear got his name.
A Limited Edition of only 250 pieces is being made worldwide so he will be a sellout as soon as collectors know of his existence.

As a member of our club you are among the first collectors in the world to see this unusual bear and you can pre-order him now for only $299 with a $50 deposit or pay in full with your pre-order and he is yours for only $249
He is not on our website catalogue yet so e-mail or call me to order him.

New arrivals from Steiff of Germany
As I am preparing this newsletter Jan is busy unpacking two very affordable Steiff Bears that have just arrived from Germany, we are now starting to bring Steiff in direct from the factory in Germany using air freight instead of shipping in large container by sea, this is the same way we have been bringing in the Hermann Bears for several years now.
This will result in much faster deliveries and also a nice reduction in prices for our members.

The first two designs to arrive are part of the now affordable Steiff Everyday range of high quality bears designed for children (and collectors) to play with.
Being Steiff made they do have a quality and feel that the Chinese produced bears don’t seem to be able to match, they are a little dearer but when you compare the differences there is no way most people would pass up this brilliant range of bears, we have lots of new designs ordered in this range that will arrive later this year.

THE TRUE BRIT SUITCASE BEAR
Steiff True BritSteiff are proud to collaborate with internationally renowned interior designer Jan Constantine.
The Constantine Collection is designed for today, and reflects the great attention to style and good taste that is lavished upon it.

Our True Brit bear enjoys a patriotic and fashionable flair thanks to Janīs exquisite design.
Always ready for adventure and travel and always ready to be your friend for life.

He proudly wears the famous Steiff brass plated "Button in Ear".
He is the perfect playmate for children but is also a true collectable like most Steiff designs

In stock now at only $69.95 including suitcase.

 

STEIFF COSY YEAR BEAR 2013
Steiff Cosy 2013
This Cosy chap embraces all the traditional ingredients we love about Steiff but he is also oh so soft and has a huge hug big enough for everyone of every age.
With the year 2013 embroidered on his foot pad, he provides the perfect gift for so many occasions celebrated throughout the year.

If you have a new arrival due next year or a special event you would like a special bear as a memento then Cosy is just perfect, Grand Parents particularly love bears with the year on them as a first companion for special additions to the family.

Me bears LogoNEW RELEASES from M.E Bears
Wendy Walker is a talented Australian Bear Artist that has been making delightful hand made mini bears for us for several years now.
All her little bears which are generally between 10cm and 20cm are fully jointed and made from the best mohair and plush fabrics available.
Making mini bears is no easy task, they are difficult to do as they are so tiny, Wendy must have the fingers of a Pixi to this fine needlework so well.
In fact there is often more time and effort in making a mini bear than say a 30-40cm cuddly bear.
Any one who has ever done any needle craft will appreciate the work an artist puts into these wonderful little creations.

You can see all the designs we have currently in stock from Wendy in our on-line catalogue but these two new Limited Editions that I commissioned Wendy to make for us have just arrived so I thought I would show them off to you now.

CAINCHARLIE BEARS UPDATE
A big surprise for Charlie Collectors this month, we have just had advice that some of the new 2012-2 plush designs that were released two weeks ago will be arriving in Australia in the next few weeks.

This is an encouraging sign that they are really starting to catch up with the back orders, we are expecting in the not to distant future most of the Isabelle Collection mohair designs from last season but we still do not have a delivery date for them.

The latest release we showed you a couple of weeks ago is selling very fast and we have already sold out on pre-orders of several designs, we cannot take further pre-orders for these bears as we will not commit to taking pre-orders for more than our confirmed allocations, once we accept your pre-order you are guaranteed of getting the bears you want.
 
Pictured is CAIN, he is one of the new 2012-2 Isabelle Collection mohair bears that is representative of the big bears in the release, he is huge for a mohair bear standing at 52cm.
And standing he does, he has the trademark flat bottomed feet and the extra firm legs that allow him to free stand fully upright on his own.

You can see Cain and all his best friends now available for pre-order in our online catalogue click here

The new designs that have been confirmed to arrive in the next shipment 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 New Arrivals

OUR VISIT TO THE NEW CHARLIE BEARS DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

New Australian Cub House HeadquartersLast Wednesday was a huge adventure for Jan and I, we were out the door at 5.30 for a flight to Melbourne to visit the new Charlie Bear Cubhouse in Woodend in country Victoria.
We were excited to be seeing the new designs that we will be getting next year.
Pictured is the big new Charlie Bears Australia Cubhouse
This is the administration and distribution centre for Charlie Bears in Australia.
Sorry this facility is not open for the public to visit.
I was permitted to take some photos of non secret areas to share with you but the new bears for next year were definitely off limits to my camera.

Sadly at this stage I cant share anything about the new bears themselves, not even their names as all new ranges are kept top secret until there official release date so we are sworn to secrecy until then.

Jan Hugging Charlie BearsI can say that the ranges we saw are simply mind blowing and I cant wait to be able to show them to you, obviously we ordered lots of bears as we know our members are going to love them.

Please don't get this new range confused with the 2012-2 designs just released this month, what we saw on Wednesday is the new 2013 collection that won't be released until early next year.

After a great day touring the new distribution center and catching up with friends old and new, a very nice lunch at a local wine bar and a pleasant drive back  through the Victorian country side we headed back to the airport for the trip home arriving just after 8.30 just in time for a late dinner.
I tried to watch a little TV but kept dozing off so gave that up as a bad idea.

After a long day and over 2100 kilometers traveled I fell into bed and dreamed of all the wonderful new bears we can all look forward to next year, I thought the bears that have just been released would be a hard act to follow, I was totally wrong, Charlie just keeps the surprises coming and the bears just keep getting better and better.
 

  • Picture 1. Sorry the wind would not cooperate so I could show you the corporate flag flying at the new Cubhouse.
  • Picture 2. A couple of the current designs waiting to greet us as we entered the lovely reception area.
  • Picture 3. Every one is off hugging bears so who is looking after the phones or are they working London Time like one of the clocks on the wall displays?

Charlie group 1

  • Picture 1. Upstairs is the Top Secret Showroom where we got to see all the new designs we have now ordered for next years release, we swore an oath of secrecy so blind folds were not required in this inner sanctum.
    Cameras are not permitted and everything is top secret until the official release date next year even the names and details of what the fantastic new bears look like, but believe me, you will be excited when you do get to see them.
  • Picture 2. A small section of the warehouse and dispatch area.
    Huge 40ft shipping containers arrive here every few weeks and are sorted for distribution to the stockists.
    A container had just arrived and within days there will be almost no bears left in the warehouse as almost every bear arriving is pre-ordered by the stores.
  • Picture 3. The boxes stacked in the foreground put a smile on our faces as they were all labeled ready to go to Nana’s Teddies, these lucky bears are ready to leave to go to our shop.
    They are the big shipment I told you about in the August newsletter a couple of weeks back, they arrived a few days after we got back and most are now happily in their new homes with our excited members.

DEAN'S OF YESTERDAY By Dean’s Director and Bear Artist Neil Miller

A 208 page hardcover nostalgic reflection of 100 toys as they are today - made over the last 100 years

Ever since the Dean's Rag Book Company Ltd was formed in London in 1903, it has been at the forefront of many developments in soft toys for children.
Today, different types of toys, electronic, computerized and others, tend to appeal to the youngsters, but it is with a degree of irony, that the toys developed by Deans over the years are now eagerly sought after as collectables by adults. The number of products the Company has developed would fill a veritable tome.
This book is intended to give a flavour of the diversity of this stubborn survivor together with the details, wherever possible, of catalogue entries and label identification and is only a small portion of the various products produce.
The research and style of this book is very much the personal view of the current Managing Director, Neil Miller.

THE FIRST 100 YEARS By Dean’s Director and Bear Artist Neil Miller

A 191 page hardcover book covering a Century of Britain's Oldest Teddy Bear Manufacturer

The front cover of this book is adapted from the cover of A Rag Book, first printed in 1908.
Formed in London in 1903, the Dean's Rag Book Company Ltd celebrates its centenary in a very different world to that into which it entered in the Edwardian era.
Dean's was one of the founding fathers of the toy industry at the turn of last century, and is possibly the only one, which today remains in private ownership.
At the height of its popularity, Deans employed hundreds of workers, and yet only fifteen years ago, it was on the verge of extinction.
The toy trade, as such, now depends on overseas production, and the fact that Deans still manufactures almost all of its products in Britain, makes it an enigma in the current climate.
Dean's created Dismal Desmond, produced the very first Mickey Mouse toy, invented the rag brick, but is now primarily known as Britain's oldest Teddy Bear manufacturer.
The book is very much the personal view of the current Dean's Managing Director, Neil Miller, and contains his asessments of the state of the company on its journey through a century - a journey which has often been far from easy.
