September 2019


Hi Bear Club Members,

sleepWell there is no dodging the fact that things are a bit quite in retail at the moment with inquiries so slow that we are fearful of Troy nodding off to sleep if we can’t find him more to do.

So I need your help to keep him awake processing your orders, packing your teddies for travel and answering your questions.
In short we need more orders so I am offering an extra incentives like Double Members Discounts or if you purchase any 2 or more you will get 4 times your normal members discounts.
The offer runs the rest of this month, and into next month as well

Scroll down to the section of “This Month’s Super Specials” for details on what we have on offer to try and entice you to add some more bears  or animals to your collection.

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

With all the current trend for collecting popular designs from the last decades Steiff has been working on bringing out some “new” designs that take many of us back to our childhoods.

Among these great re-creations from years past is the always popular Winnie The Pooh and Christopher Robin designs with these great collectibles having just arrived.


Steiff's  Winnie The Pooh looks as if he was plucked right out of Disney's popular film!
Pooh is made of the finest Schulte mohair with all-wool felt paw pads in a beautiful soft honey color.
His five-way jointed body and flat feet means he can either stand or sit.
Pooh's sweet expression features a honey-coloured, hand-stitched nose.
And, of course, he wouldn't be that iconic silly ol' bear without his classic red shirt.
He is truly magnificent and sure to be a favourite amongst your collection!
And Pooh 'Bears' the iconic gold Steiff 'button-in-ear'.

With only 4000 made for worldwide distribution this bear is truly a desirable collectible

We only have a couple still available at $469, even less with your extra discounts this month

20081In this fantastic set are Christopher Robins's dear friends:
Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger.
Entirely handmade with the finest Schulte mohair each little friend measures approximately 12.5 cm

Pooh, Piglet and Tigger are each 5 way jointed with the tiniest of hand-stitched noses.
Every detail has been perfected from Pooh's classic red shirt to Tigger's infectious smile.
The Christopher Robin Gift Set arrives in a special box designed just for them.

In Disney's live action adventure, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way.
Now it is up to Pooh & friends to venture into his world to help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
Now grown up, Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future.
He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter.
Christopher has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simpleminded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, their friendship is rekindled, reminding Christopher of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing was considered the very best something.

Only 2000 sets made and only $749 for all 4 characters again even less with this months offer Click here to adopt them


20337Mickey Mouse 90th Birthday Limited Edition by Steiff with only 1090 pieces worldwide

Walt Disney Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse.
Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928, at the Colony Theatre in New York, in Steamboat Willie, Disney's first animated cartoon with synchronized sound.
Walt Disney directed the short film and contributed his own squeaks to the soundtrack, which was backed by a 15-piece band recorded with the Powers Cinephone process.
As a mischievous deckhand on a riverboat, Mickey to Minnie's delight creates a musical version of "Turkey in the Straw," utilizing an animal menagerie as his instruments.
The tyrannical Captain Pete is not amused, and Mickey finds himself peeling potatoes in the galley.
In celebration of 90 years of Mickey Mouse, we are pleased to present Steamboat Willie a

 Mickey Mouse by Steiff.

Word has certainly spread about Jan’s obsession with collecting and her amazing hug of teddy bears and animals, so much so that after the recent interview with Channel 7’s Sunrise program she was approached by international womans magazines “Take 5” and their sister publication in New Zealand “Lucky Break”

We were contacted by one of their journalists who has written a touching and interesting story on Jan, her passion for collecting and the story of how it all came about.
This was supported by a 5 hour photo shoot of her collection in which Jan, I and the photographer Phillip had a great deal of fun setting up some really interesting and different poses to show of her favorites.

The artical along with Phillips amazing photo spread will be published early in the new year, I will let you know the dates when I get them


IMG_3498The most common everyday items can become wonderful display props like using a “Stadium” style stand to better
utilise the often wasted space on deeper shelves or bookcases when displaying smaller bears.

The best “stadiums” are actually tiered can or spice shelves normally used as space savers in the pantry or grocery cupboard, you can find these in most variety stores like K-Mart or Target for only  a few dollars.

These “stadiums” come in a range of sizes and are particularly useful to not only use the full depth of a display shelf but they provide elevation for the bears at the back so all can be seen, also mixing in some colorful figurines if you have them adds
yet another dimension and point of interest to your displays




SKIPPERQ. When will my pre-order arrive?
Charlie Bears are now broken into 4 quarters for production however each design is scheduled to be produced in that quarter, it is not guaranteed they will arrive in that period as they may be made late in the quarter and delivery may take them into the next month or two depending on shipments.

Q. I ordered a design that I know has arrived but I did not get mine yet, Why?
Often we only receive part of our allocation of a design so we must allocate them in order of which we received the pre-orders from members so for example if you were the 9th member to order and we only received 4 bears in this shipment your bear would be allocated from a future shipment.

Q. Why do we not know in advance what bears are arriving in a particular shipment?
Charlie Bears only advise us of what is coming once a container shipment has docked and they have checked all bears on their manifest have actually arrived, they then divide the number of bears that arrive proportionately to all stores based on their orders to ensure that all stockists receive at least some of each
design if the full allocation has not shipped from the factory.
They then invoice each store for what they will be receiving.

Q. Why don’t we contact members as soon as we get
our invoice for the shipment?
We hold off advising members until the bears have actually
arrived in store as sometimes they can take up to a week to
arrive after they leave the warehouse in Victoria, we then need
to carefully check each bear invoiced has arrived as occasionally due to a packing error some are not in the boxes
and we have to chase up why they have not arrived, often the
johnmischievous little devils are hiding out on the packing bench in
the CB warehouse.
Once we know that each bear is perfect and ready to go to his
new home, then and only then do we contact you to organise
your delivery.

Candice - Congo Gorilla - Genevieve
Grizelle & Grace - Higgs - Potions
