Super

Fun for kids, excellent for special treats.

Crazy prices on the accessories you can choose.

To be perfectly frank with you the Bear Factory is not a shop I ever thought I'd be stepping inside. I'm not a huge bear fan, and I don't have kids so really why would I want to go there?! Well it all came about when my niece and nephew decided they'd like to come and stay with us at Easter a...

“The Bear Necessities!”

published 05/02/2006

A cute cuddly friend, a great shopping experience

It can be expensive

Being the big kid that I am, I love teddies. Infact, I still have all of the stuffed animals I had when I was born! So you can imagine my delight at walking into the Hamley's store during the festive season a few years back and finding a factory full of bears! Yes, it is the unmistakable Bear...

“A custom made furry friend”

published 18/09/2001

Have just what you want made up there and then

Expensive

You’ll never guess where I went at the weekend – only the Bear Factory at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre that’s where! I did manage not to buy anything, as I do have a houseful of bears and they were quite expensive, but I just had to tell you about them! This is an amazing shop...

“Bear faced chic”

published 25/09/2002

A magical experience for children (and their Mum)

Pricey

What do you get for the love of your life when they are celebrating their birthday? This was a question that vexed me, as my daughter Daisy (the love of my life in question) was about to turn six. She really, really wanted the Ready Steady Cook easy bake oven, but to be honest I didn’t feel...

You are able to create the soft toy of you dreams

No Elephants

Have you ever wanted to know or even see how your favourite bedtime soft toy made? Well now you have the chance. Just visit the Bear Factory. It allows the customer to create their very own bears or cat or dog... oh just come along for a look. The shop in Peterborough Queens Gate Centre is fun...

“Make tracks to Bear Factory”

published 25/06/2001

good staff

A bit pricey

This is a new brand of shops (well i haven't seen any before). I first heard about Bear factory from my local radio station. I acutally won a competition for a free bear and outfit. So basicly the bear factory is about making and customising your own teddy bear, or cat, dog, rabbit, tiger and...

...that's probably why you won't find any in this store!!! If you've never heard of the Bear Factory, then you're fortunate, as it's a very addictive thing. Although we had a store open in my local shopping centre a couple of years ago, I'd never really had occasion to purchase a teddy bear...

“Time to bear all”

Great gifts that will never be forgotten

Might be a little pricey.

There are special moments in our childrens lives that we like to mark by buying them a special gift, something to treasure. Personally the best gifts I have given my children have been the ones that have been unexpected, the little treats that we have surprised the children with. The other...

It's a wonderful, magical shop!

Expensive

I visit Norwich quite a lot, and have often walking passed the Bear Factory store in the shopping mall. I've been in there a couple of times to have a look round. But - until today - could never really afford to buy a bear of my own. I really wanted a bear from there. You see, it's not just any...

I wanted to do something special for my daughters 7th birthday, so I decided to take her, her 3 siblings and best friend to Build-a-bear at the trafford centre, manchester. We arrived to a nice bright store and were greeted by a lady at the door. We went in and it was 'self service.' There were...

I was looking for an unusual present for my young niece to congratulate her on passing her ballet exams, and while on a visit to London last year we came across the Bear Factory. There was a wide range of different animals to choose from and a wide range of different fur designs. There are also...

“Come And See Me Bear”

published 03/03/2002

everything!

only the cost

My Mum & Step-Dad are over this weekend, so yesterday, we went shopping. My five year old daughter had some (early) birthday money to spend, which meant we ended up paying a visit to The Bear Factory. In the end, as well as my daughter getting a cat, my Mum (56) and I (32) ended up with unique...

could prove addictive

I can not emphasis just how much fun the Bear Factory Workshop is. Also known as 'build a bear factory', if you haven't heard of the stores before, you make your own teddy bears. Taking about 20 minutes, it is very fun. I went and made a bear with my girlfriend on valentines day. Was perfect. The...
