FAQs

Where is Bearitz based?

Perthshire, Scotland

How do I contact Bearitz?

All of my contact details are listed at Contact Me.

Are your bears suitable for children?

Due to small parts they may present a choking hazard. These bears are collectibles and not suitable for young children.

Do the bears come in a gift box?

Yes they do! I carefully tuck them in a specially designed gift box with some tissue paper and tie with two coloured ribbons. Except for the largest size bears 18" (45cm) they will be sent in a gift box, just not a branded Bearitz box as the cost is prohibitive for such large boxes.

How do I care for a Bearitz teddy bear?

Surface care only, wipe with a clean damp cloth if needed. Please do not place in a washing machine.

Do you have a catalogue?
