If you have small children, this is a must visit. You can tour the factory and visit the gift shop. You can even build your own bear and watch it be assembled before your eyes.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour. There were fun scavenger hunt things for the kids to do and we even came away with "button bears." I highly recommend it.

The factory tour was cute. It was short, sweet and to the point, with some punny bear jokes. What the kids took away from the tour was that if their bear ever gets damaged, they can send it to the teddy bear hospital to get...More

The bears are already made you can just buy clothes or buy a bear already clothed! The bears were expensive, the ones I saw were 80-90.00 each! Arrive by 1pm at the latest or you will miss the last tour.

I believe so because they have lifetime warranty on their teddy bears and I believe they do international. I will suggest you to visit their website or call them directly. Good luck.

No reservations required, and this time of year you won't have any crowds to deal with. You might get a personal tour. I did in early Sept.
