For information about artists bio's and how they were added to the site, please visit our FAQ.
Our initial site, iloveteddies.com was built by us as a general Teddy Bear / Real Bear information web site as a hobby. We are collectors and enjoy the hobby of Teddy Bears a great deal. Teddy-Bears.Org was built as a hobby to serve a more direct purpose, to highlight the creativity and talents of Teddy Bear artists to collectors or potential collectors. Part of this is to build a community and a historical preserve of Teddy Bear Artists and Manufacturers.
The idea came to me when the Teddy Bear Museum of Naples, Florida Closed. I thought it was a shame that so many creations were taken out of the direct view of attendees and that some of those artists may never be heard of again. So from that, I decided to build this site to preserve the memory of past artists, shine light on current artists and educate the public on Teddy Bear Collecting.
Teddy-Bears.Org is a friendly place filled with friendly artists. We encourage you to browse the site and join in on the fun.
