“Cute little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

It was interesting hearing stories about the bears and how people from all over the United States and over the world have donated bears. My son asked a lot of questions and the owner was kind enough to indulge him. I hope they're able to expand soon! We really wished their was a better and large selection for teddy bears for sale. If we ever make it back, we'll be sure to bring a teddy bear to donate. The day we were there the current total of bears was 8,557 !

“Neat little place”

It was a neat place to go to and listen to the owner explain about her bears, its amazing how many different places she has gotten bears from! Only thing I wish she had a bigger variety of things for sale:)

“Bears bears and more bears”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We were told about this from the lady at the visitor center since we had small children. Went in and the lady was very friendly. My kids all asked for a particular theme of a bear and she was able to find that bear and even tell a story about it. A mermaid bear a Star Wars bear and a princess bear she had them all pretty impressive. Great place to stop in at to break up one of your days of driving.

“Chainsaw art sold here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Saw off the road eagles bears and other wooded creatures. The little house was cute with all the teddy bears. Jackie knows them all by name;) she adores them all!! What really caught our eye was the wooden sculptures. We wanted a fun momento from our Black Hills trip. The sculptures are a must see and a must take home. Thank you Jackie for giving a Eagle a great home. "Custer" will love MN.

“Reminds me of the show "My Crazy Obsession"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

It is what it is. A bunch of bears crammed onto shelves in a little store. Some of the bears are wearing tags that tell about where they originated. The nice older woman that owns it stands at the counter to greet you. It's free, it's kitschy and cute. My 18 year old bought a teddy bear town tee shirt. My 9 year old liked that when he asked the owner if he could use a restroom her reply was, "bare bottoms welcome!"
