“Perfect mix of actual information and entertainment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

Of all the factory tours in VT, this one was my favorite. It was a great mix of information about the actual construction of the bears and whimsy. Perfect for adults and children. It did not, unlike most factory tours I've been on, feature the requisite video.

“Beary fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2009

I went here yesterday, and while it's not an enormous place, it was a lot of fun. We took a nice tour that showed and explained all about the bears and how they are made (very entertaining), and there were so many nice bears and bear-related things that we couldn't resist bringing home some new friends. Definitely worth the trip for anyone, adults to older people to (of course) kids and families.

“Very cute tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

The tour is very cute with lots of bear puns going into the company history and showing the many types of teddy bears and how they are made. If you arew into the subject matter you will enjoy this visit.

“A great place to visit with kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2008

Our Girl Scout troop sold Girl Scout cookies to raise money for an overnight trip to Burlington VT. The trip was capped off with a tour of the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. The tour guide was exceptional, showing all the tour particpants the history of the very popular Vermont Teddy Bear and how they are made. We actually walked right along the factory floor on an elevated platform so that we could see what was going on.

Once the tour was over, each of the girls were able to choose a bear to stuff themselves. Each girl chose a "Make a Friend for Life Bear" and then the helpful staff (with the girls guidance) stuffed and sewed up the bears. The price for the bear was very reasonable and the selection of accessories was incredible.

It was the highlight of the trip for the girls!
