A wonderful place for old and young - anyone for whom a teddy bear is special! At the Vermont Teddy Bear factory, our tour was led by a young, knowledgeable employee who interacted sweetly with the youngsters in the tour group of ten. You see the genesis of the teddy bears and what makes this particular bear so special. A half hour tour included a stop at the teddy bear hospital where the bears can be 'healed' - they have an IBU (intensive bear unit) along other hospital areas. The teddy bears are like members of the family, and can be tailored in fur and eye color and clothing for special occasions. The tour ended in the gift shop, with so many adorable bears all around, as well as other items for purchase.
This was a well spent hour+ that everyone enjoyed.
