Unlike conventional bear building workshops, we prefer the hands on approach and therefore do not use an electronic stuffing machine. You will get to stuff your bear by hand to a feel that you want using specialised bear building fibre stuffing.

Once you are happy with the amount of stuffing your bear has you can then add in your chosen heart insert after making a wish. Then fill in your very own birth certificate for your new furry friend.
