I have been so happy with these darling teddy bears! They have a wonderful weight when you hold them, but are still soft and squishy! They have such sensitive expressions on their little faces and you just want to keep gazing at them as you become acquainted! I love each individual bear I have gotten here - thank you so much for making and sharing them!

I had been watching Mallory in this shop and a couple of times I thought I had missed my chance being able to get her, but finally all worked out and she is here with us now! I could not write enough of how I love her and all these bears. Everything with the order was perfect, thank you!

Totally adore Sourdough. His fur is so soft and he has a completely sweet expression. Custom Teddys bears are amazing and so well-made!

I don't know when I've held something so soft and wonderfully cuddly that was not actually a living animal! This beautiful bear won our hearts instantly, I just love everything about him! Everything with the order was perfect, thank you so much!

About

Since 1988 -- How it all began!

I made my first teddy bear, I believe it was around 1984. It seemed to take me forever and I struggled to turn the fabric for the arms and legs of the teddy, but after that ordeal, I was simply hooked. In 1988 I quit my state job and started a little business called Custom Teddys. I made and sold teddy bears in my little shop on People’s Wharf here in Juneau, Alaska, and it was one of the happiest times in my life -- doing what I love and meeting people; watching their smiles and laughter as they pointed at the bears, convinced it looked like their old "Uncle Frank" or their grandmother or the guy at the supermarket.

I had no money. Just a dream. And although I had to go back to work at a "regular" job about a year later, for the past 25 years, teddy bears have occupied a major portion of my world. I recently retired from my "regular job" dedicate most of my time to the continuation of my love for the bears.

When you adopt one of my bears, you are assured of receiving a quality product that has more than just a little bit of me in it. I put my heart and soul into my bears. Seldom do I think of price or business when I am creating a teddy bear. It is all about who will it be? It's a personality about to be born and sent out into the world for a special assignment.

I can’t make two teddies alike. I've actually tried. But it just doesn't work. The second one always lacks just a little bit of the magic. Thus I determine that each bear is truly, one of a kind, ready to be sent out into this big wide world.

Shipping
UNITED STATES:

All packages are sent Priority Mail from Alaska. Packages are mailed within 24 hours of receiving payment. Your teddy bear should arrive in 3-4 business days.

INTERNATIONAL:

I have set up shipping to Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Luxembourg and the UK for First Class International. If you would like me to send your bear Priority and it is listed as First Class, please let me know and I will be happy to relist the item you desire with your choice of shipping options.

Please read the following regarding International Shipments.

Priority Mail International: The cost to send your bear is based on the shipping calculator at USPS.com. Your bear will arrive within 6-10 days. Priority mail packages can be tracked and insured.

First Class Mail for International Buyers: This method costs much less than Priority Mail and is also based on the shipping calculator at USPS.com. If you choose First Class mail, limited tracking is available and arrival time varies.

All packages are mailed within 24 hours of receiving cleared payment.

International buyers please note:

Reporting Value on Customs Declarations: International regulations require that the value of your item is to be declared on all customs forms. Some countries may charge a customs fee upon receipt of your package. Please check with your country's postal regulations prior to purchasing, as the customs charge, if any, will be your responsibility.

FREE SHIPPING:

If I offer free shipping on any of my bears, I will send them via Priority Mail (includes International buyers) and include insurance.
