WELCOME!

All our work is carried out on-site and in full view of visitors.  We are happy to encourage interest in the techniques and methods of our profession and to demonstrate and discuss individual cases when requested. 

We offer a full restoration service for all teddy bears and other soft bodied toys from cleaning and repair through to replacement joints and eyes. 

We do not discriminate against age or value but do require a proper viewing of the patient to fairly assess needs.

(Please contact us to discuss options.)

NB:  We are happy to discuss the care of larger collections where required.

Exclusive Bartie Bristle Limited Editions!
Bartie Bristle is our own design and is only available to purchase here.  He comes in a variety of sizes and styles including an annual edition and special issues.  Bartie is quite unique and very much the centre of attention here at Bear It In Mind.

DIARY

Pop-up Clinics

Bring your teddy bear along for free advice on identification, age or ‘clinical’ needs.  Some treatments such as eye replacements and claw stitching will be available for a small charge on the day.  Other more complex repairs and restorations can be taken back to the studio workshop to be carried out. Demonstrations of traditional bear making techniques throughout the day.

Free.  Small charge for repairs carried out on the day.
