TEDDY BEARS' PICKNICK home


FORGET ME NOT BEARS


In the year 1993 we met the four sisters, all talented bear artists, who create the wonderful Forget me not bears. Only one year earlier Joy, the oldest but one, started to make teddy bears. Success was soon to follow and Joy introduced her sisters to bear making. Nowadays Mary and her sister Joy carry on the tradition.

Antique bears are a great source of inspiration, sometimes with illustrious examples from Steiff, but also inspired by cuddly old English teddies.
Their bears are carefully aged in order to give them the well loved and antique look as if they are 100 years old that is so typical of Forget me not bears. They have also created their own way of stuffing a bear with a mix of materials that give the bears weight making them very easy to pose and giving them a wonderful posture.
It is often hard not to mistake a Forget me not bear for an antique (Steiff) bear but you can always identify them by their weight, the sewn in label on the back and the forget me not flower that is embroidered on the left foot. Since 1993 we work together and have one of a kind bears as well as special editions made for us.


Please note these bears have been especially created for collectors and are not suitable as a toy for children.

All accessories are props unless marked otherwise
