Ursa Minor

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Back by overwhelming demand, URSA MINOR, LOS ANGELES, offers the tactile joy that isn't easily attainable in these pandemic times. Part machine-stitched and part painstakingly crafted by hand, these little bears are ready to get the hell out of the SoCal desert and into your arms! Made of super soft fleece, they look forward to the change of season. (Trust me, I'm jealous!). Generously stuffed with hypoallergenic poly-fil and, in some cases, a bit of rice in the paws and feet, these bears are guaranteed to bring happiness to every friend & family member who is currently not on your sh*tlist.

Please note: The eyes on most URSA MINOR CUBS are tightly secured with plastic washers; however, it’s best to keep all UMC away from curious toddlers and/or hungry house pets. Each nose & mouth combo is hand-embroidered to connote a unique expression that represents the current mental state of humankind.

No two URSA MINOR CUBS are alike. The bear you see in the primary photo will be the one-of-a-kind bear who takes flight and lands at the door to your humble abode.

Not intended for children under four.
For custom orders, please inquire.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COSTS start at $25.00! Are these bears worth it? You bet your Bowie 1970-1980 vinyl collection! But you’ve been warned.

All products are copyright and trademark URSA MINOR. Please do not reproduce or replicate without permission. Detailed information revealed about each URSA MINOR CUB that includes, but is not limited to height, weight, and record collection is strictly confidential. Some exceptions apply.

About ursaminorcubs

Sales 31
On Etsy since 2011

Comic Book Editor brings bear cubs to life by hand & machine for tactile joy in these pedantic, pandemic times.

2011. The comic book landscape was thriving. But this editor needed something more. After dusting off her trusty New Home sewing machine and capitalizing on inspiration from the drawings of her favorite comic book artist husband, URSA MINOR was born. After a brief stint on ETSY, the editor proffered her soft wares, which ballooned from 10 to 110 in less time than it takes to assemble a monthly comic book!, to a local boutique. For the five years that followed, URSA MINOR CUBS were spotted in the shop window of the coolest local on the east coast and also found perched on the couches and in the dark cupboards of sympathetic friends and colleagues.

And then, forced to uproot to the wild west coast with her family, said comic book editor left the bear biz behind to focus once again on the existential, sartorial and musical needs of mature comic book readers of the world.

Thousands of comics and crafts later and here we are.

URSA MINOR, LOS ANGELES.
Where cubs made of fleece are concocted with ❤️ and hypoallergenic poly-fil by an east coast editor who hates the heat.
