My husband and I really enjoyed stopping here on our way into Vermont. The bears are excellent quality and super cute, although you should be warned that they are pricey. The company will, however repair or replace a damaged bear (even one chewed on by...More

It was neat to see everything but the tour guide wasn’t getting that there were no kids in our tour. Overall a good stop, just with the products was a bit lower priced!

Had a very interesting tour and then bought 2 little teddy bears for our grandson and great-nephew and a couple other gifts. Lots of fun. You can spend a lot or a little. There was no pressure to buy.

Don't let the stuffed animals fool you. This tour is a fun experience no matter how old you are. The kids enjoyed making their own bears, but didn't appreciate the factor tour as much as the adults did. The tour was a perfect length so...More

The bears are already made you can just buy clothes or buy a bear already clothed! The bears were expensive, the ones I saw were 80-90.00 each! Arrive by 1pm at the latest or you will miss the last tour.

I believe so because they have lifetime warranty on their teddy bears and I believe they do international. I will suggest you to visit their website or call them directly. Good luck.

No reservations required, and this time of year you won't have any crowds to deal with. You might get a personal tour. I did in early Sept.
