About us:

We have been selling old & vintage bears on the internet since 2001. We are well known on ebay (classic-collectables) having sold over 5000 vintage toys most of which were old Steiff bears, old bears, and animal friends mostly by Steiff and other quality makers. 

We have built up a very loyal customer base over the years and made many very good friends. We started collecting vintage toys over 45 years ago. From a hobby and buying and selling, we developed over the years and met many wonderful like-minded collectors. You meet such lovely people from all over the world. Bear people are the nicest people they really are. All of our family collect so it is a pleasure shared by everyone.

Our aim is to have a website that is always up to date and with fresh constantly changing. With stock of old, vintage & antique Steiff bears and other very special old bears from around the world. All the bears that we love to collect ourselves, we can enjoy sharing with you. We can always be contacted by email or by telephone. If you have any queries please get in touch we will be glad to help you.  Very best wishes.  Jeri & family.
