Welcome To Haven Bears

Lenville faceA 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 -  We are currently busy working hard on new bears for our April Newsletter which we are hoping to send out later this week. Once we know that it has reached people we will add all the bears to our Shop Newsletter page so do come back soon and meet them.

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.

Tricolore photoHello 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.

We trade at several shows during the year, Teddy Fairs, Toy Fairs and other events and we travel all over the UK to exhibit so there are many opportunities for you to meet the bears in the fur, but we also like to offer our bears for sale on our website for those of you who, for whatever reason, are unable to get to fairs. We currently include postage details for the UK, EU, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia on our website. If you are located elsewhere in the world and wish to purchase a bear, just e-mail us for details of the cost and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We also sell our bears at a number of the best Teddy Bear shops across the UK. The bears that they sell are unique to them and cannot be bought from anywhere else. The latest shop to join this select group is The Teddy Bear Shop who are based in South Wales. We have just made our first eight bears for them and they will be available to adopt from them at the end of July 2020. Visit their website www.the-teddybearshop.com to learn more.
