Thank all my lovely customers (old and new ones) for your wonderful support during 2020's ups and downs. I'm looking forward to 2021 being less upsetting for us at COLDHAMCUDDLIES - and I'm looking forward to several new changes in our global coverage - as the months go by. I hope to welcome SOME, if not ALL, of you again in 2021 - a well as everyone else needing help in the matter of Unusual, Long-lasting Cuddly Toys, Novelty Slippers and Golf Club Savers in future. Cy Bear and I are humbled and so very pleased to have had the chance to make you and your families happy. We hope to carry on and make even more of you satisfied with your visits to our Shop here in "Robin Hood Country" in England, UK!

CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK - as at 01/01/2021:

As is Everyone, COLDHAMCUDDLIES is affected by the decisions of Governments in Europe just before Christmas that closed their borders between the United Kingdom and themselves. This will affect any deliveries of Coldham orders in progress. So, please continue to be patient - and we'll have to cope as best we can.

We also face potential delays caused by the UK's becoming an independent nation. After 40+years of being a part of the European Union, that too may well impact on international trading. We will do our best, I promise: the rest is up to our respective postal authorities!

However, despite all this, COLDHAMCUDDLIES will remain open to Everyone who is interested in ANY of our Cuddly Toys, Novelty Slippers or Golf Club Protectors. As stated earlier, though, we will do our VERY BEST to meet your deadlines - but please bear these limitations in mind when leaving your orders.

As the world continues to deal with Covid19 restrictions, COLDHAMCUDDLIES' service continues to thrive. We do plead with Everyone though: STAY SAFE please!

COLDHAMCUDDLIES continues it's support for St. Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham, England, UK. The COLDHAMCUDDLIES Clerical Bear Collection now number 9 different Bears from which you can choose (https://www.etsy.com/shop/coldhamcuddlies?section_id=27506818). Since their introduction in October, 2018, 43 different versions ( as at 28,12.20) have been adopted. 2021 starts with a request for a third Dominican Priest - making three in all to have found a home since their introduction in April last year. Sister Bears are still proving popular, and now are made in 4 differing styles. They mainly represent Orders that have been part of the St. Barnabas RC Cathedral Parish since it was opened in 1844, up to the current time.

20% of the purchase price of every Clerical Bear is donated to the Cathedral's Restoration Fund. We make to order: and create each Bear in the date order of receipt. If you have experience with another specific Order/Congregation - which you would like to recall in this way (and have a good photograph) I'm more than willing to make one as a gift/momento for you. Clerical Bears make splendid and unusual commemorative gifts for religious ordinations, anniversaries etc. as well as being great memory recallers.

WE ALWAYS love new suggestions for CUDDLIES. Contact me if you have a particular idea, and I'll be happy to have a go, even if I don't already have a pattern in my extensive library (built up over 50 years of Toy-making). If a NEW PATTERN is needed, it's FREE to you - your choice may well become a new Coldham Cuddly in future! New models have been/are being introduced - when this Sole Operator has the time! Contact us please: and I'll be happy to try to meet your needs.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - HELP SAVE UK HEDGEHOGS: 20% of sales of Baby, Mommy or Daddy Hedgehogs or of the Family combined (see https://www.etsy.com/listing/259346605/the-hedgehog-family-daddy-m-baby-l?ref=shop_home_active_5) will be shared equally between Prickles Hedgehog Rescue, Cheddar, Somerset, UK or Tiggywinkles Hedgehog Trust, Haddenham, Buckinghamshire - a specialist Hedgehog Hospital in the UK. Real Hedgehogs are disappearing in the UK, and this is COLDHAMCUDDLIES attempt to help stop that happening. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD - by buying a Coldham Cuddlies Hedgehog. They are super fluffy - and don't scratch like the Real Version!

THE COLDHAM SLIPPER COLLECTION - Childrens' models are offered in Small, Medium and Large sizes for each age group, Adults versions are MADE TO MEASURE,ORDER.

THE COLDHAM CUDDLIES STUFFED ANIMAL TOY HOSPITAL:
(https://www.etsy.com/listing/79124185/stuffed-toy-animal-restoration-clinic?) offers individual treatment to all much loved Stuffed Animal Toys - but not "Dolly" Dolls. Besides lacking the skills needed for these complex items, I've never been a "dolly" type of person.

MULTIPLE purchases (of any COLDHAMCUDDLIES Products) attract a discount, which depends on the Toy sizes/numbers involved: please contact me via the "Notes to Sellers" space on the Etsy Order form, or email me via petis [!at] tiscali.co.uk so we can discuss your options. NB: Discounts are not applied to the "Fund Raiser" Cuddlies - which are to be found in special sections of their own in our Shop.

EVERY COLDHAMCUDDLIES Product has a woven label sewn on them/it, and are made in a smoke free and animal free environment. Where appropriate they each contain Polyester Stuffing which conforms to the following British and European Standards for Safety:

BS 1425 for Cleanliness: BS5852 for Flammability: BS EN71-3:2013 Compliance for Soft Toys sold within the European Union.

This stuffing CAN be washed at 60 degrees BUT a lower setting (say 30 degrees) is recommended, because no guarantees can be given that dyes used in all the other fabrics/materials used to make a COLDHAMCUDDLIES product are colour-fast.

All our Toys are made with fabrics and other materials that themselves are licensed for use with cuddly Toys, Novelty Slippers and Golfing supplies. They are therefore compliant with all relevant standards required for such items when offered to the general public.

CUSTOM ORDERS are welcomed. Please convo or email me, to discuss your specific requirements. I'm happy to accommodate all reasonable suggestions,

Working towards compliance with the CE/UKCA marking requirements of the Soft Toy Directive. Requirements now being tightened as a result of Brexit and other factors.

On Etsy since 2010

Ornamental Unbreakable Animal Toys Made and Stuffed Toy Animals Restored too. Call in - can't wait to meet you!

Welcome to the world of COLDHAMCUDDLIES! Your one-stop destination for Ornamental Toys made in Felts, Fleeces and Faux Fur fabrics. Every Cuddly is a one-off: I am incapable of doing a complete duplicate of any Toy I make!

I have been making Cuddlies Keepsake Toys for most of my adult life. I started creating these wonderful vintage animals in the 1950's and have continued making them for family and friends ever since. In 2010, as distraction from the fulltime caring duties needed by my late husband, I was introduced to Etsy by my crafty daughter, opened COLDHAMCUDDLIES in February of that year and have been having a great time ever since. In 2012, the Cuddlies became a full time "paying pastime", as well as occupational therapy, after my husband died suddenly.

My COLDHAMCUDDLIES are mostly created using vintage patterns I have collected over the last 60 years. I do have modern patterns too. My toys are made using unusual faux fur and colourful plush fabrics. They are all stuffed with polyester fibre, meeting all international standards - and are made in a totally smoke-free environment. They are long-lasting, cuddly, safe for everyone from birth to the Third Age: indeed many have become Companion Toys for the latter group. (My toy tutor's maxim was that any sewing should look the same on either side of the final product: I still aim to achieve that goal).

COLDHAMCUDDLIES come in all forms:

Bears - Teddies, Pandas, Koalas, big and small.
Golf Club Head Covers.
Rabbits galore, dressed and small
Foxes and other Animal Plush Toys.
Hand/Glove Puppets, and
Novelty Plush Slippers for Children, Women and Men ( Small, Medium and Large for each).
Owls and Penguins feature, as well as Fleece Poultry Toys.
There are Toy Nursery Mobiles on offer too - using our coterie of Small Toys.
We now offer Feature Ornamental Whales and/or Dolphins for good measure.

As an integral part of the ColdhamCuddlies Shop, I also offer full restorative treatment for elderly or damaged animal toys. Self-taught in this instance, the treatment procedure can be explained to interested Customers who contact me via my website www.coldhamcuddlies.co.uk - or via the Etsy contact system here. I will e-mail the modus operandi immediately, and we can then discuss the treatment(s) required. Prices are obviously dependent on the current state of the Toy and what the Patient requires as and end result. The service has proved to be popular in the UK and near European Continent. Since the service was introduced in 2011, we have welcomed patients from both coasts of the North American Continent as well.

I've undertaken speaking assignments to explain more about the Stuffed Animal Restoration Clinic and it's operations. Please contact me if you need to fill a visitor slot: I'll be happy to fill the vacancy, with reasonable notice.
