Not All Teddy Bears are for Children

Not all teddy bears are designed for children. Artist teddy bears are designed for adult collectors. They often have glass eyes and sometimes have pellets in the stuffing to add weight to the teddy bears. These are potential choking hazards for young children.

 

so what do you do if you wanna make a special bear for someone’s young child or baby?

 

I make sure to enclose a card, (and make sure the parents are aware) which says:

”This teddy bear is meant for display like a porcelain doll.
It contains glass eyes and steel and or glass pellets which are a choking hazard.

Surface clean only not washable.”
