Welcome To Haven Bears
A warm welcome to the Mobile and Tablet friendly Haven Bears Website, I do hope that you like it. You can also now follow us on Instagram or Facebook where we add new bears as we finish them each day and show Haven Bears on Tour as we travel around the country for fairs, just click on the links at the bottom of the page, so do visit and see our new bears as they are finished.
Quick Update - Today, Tuesday 26th, we have added the somewhat bonkers Patchwork Balbo, our latest Beardy Bear, to our Website Shop New Bears Page in addition to the five bears added last week, so do visit there to meet them all. We are still busy working on lots of new bears so do come back soon and meet them too, they will be added to the New Bears page of the Shop as they are finished. I hope you are all coping with the latest restrictions and managing to stay positive, it may seem like a million miles away today but Spring will come!
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ADOPTING A BEAR- We wanted to let you have a further update on Haven Bears situation in view of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. In March I was classed as clinically vulnerable and therefore with the latest Lockdown I am having to shield again. Fortunately Royal Mail have now introduced a Collection Service, which means that we can book our postage online and pay to have parcels collected by our postman. This means we can send bears out using the usual Royal Mail postal services, 1st Class, 2nd Class etc, each time a bear is adopted which is great for you as you don't have to wait as long for us to post the bears and it's great for us as it means we don't have to leave the house! I have now updated all our postal options to reflect these choices and also re-introduced the International postage services as these too can be sent via the new Collection Service. Unfortunately some postage prices have increased again from 1st January but we do try and keep our postage charges to a minimum, only charging what it costs us. Where possible multiple purchases will be sent together to reduce the cost and any postage overcharged will be refunded.
Don't forget you can now Like and Follow us on Facebook as well as Instagram, find us at www.facebook.com/havenbears or www.instagram.com/havenbearsandhares or just click on the links at the bottom of the page.
Hello everyone, welcome to the Haven Bears shop. Our names are Alison and Stephen Beal and we have been making our gorgeous Haven Bears for over 18 years. All of our bears are Collectors Bears and are "One of a Kind", they are made using the very highest quality mohair and alpaca with cashmere, Sassy fabric or ultrasuede pads and paws. We use a variety of fillings, steel shot, glass beads, rubber or plastic pellets and polyester to give our bears weight and that extra cuddle factor. During 2013 we also introduced a new range of Plush and semi-plush bears in a range of sizes. The use of this more affordable material enables us to make big bears at a sensible price. We may not always have these bears in stock but they are available to order so if you are interested in one, just let us know. During 2017 we also started to make beautiful Haven Hares in a mixture of plush and mohair and in 2019 we launched our new Freestyle Bears and Hares, a collection of hand painted bears, totally unique and very special, visit the Shop Page for more details.
