The whole place is cool. But the store is expensive unless they have a special. Great place to take photos. Tour was good also .

“Lots of bears”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Not too much to see, but if you love teddy bears you probably shouldn't miss this. Personally VT teddy bears are a little too expensive, but if you know teddy bear lovers, then its worth it. Lots to choose from as far as bear colors, types, clothes. Plus you can make/design your own shirts. Didn't get to do the tour, but plan to go back to do it at some point.

“Just your average bear”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Pricey and overated. The tour was boring and very matter of fact, not what we thought. Would not go again

“Surprisingly interesting, even without children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We didn't know what to expect but for $3 per person, we were hoping for more than a glance through a window pane. And we did get more, much more. Very interesting tour which takes you through the many processes required to assemble a teddy bear. Even the kids in our tour group liked it. The tour guide was excellent and the premises are magical. Wish I was young again...

“Excellent product, poor tour guides”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

The tour was too short and the guide was not informative enough to make us want to stay. We left quickly. The bears are wonderful thought and worth the money.
