Merrythought Teddy Bears
Available in Stock
Merrythought is Britain's longest-established teddy-bear maker and its threatened closure in 2006 sparked a national outcry. This delightful book charts the Shropshire firm's history, complete with teddy-bear timeline, and illustrates many of its much-loved products. It offers advice on care and cleaning, how to date a teddy and how to spot fakes, and provides a list of stockists. Engaging and well- informed, it is a charming celebration of what Gyles Brandreth describes in his introduction as 'the world's favourite soft toy'.
