Charlie Bears ALISON

If you are called Alison, or know someone with this name, then this namesake bear is the perfect one for you or them.

She is made from a curly, cherry red plush fur on her arms, legs and ears and her panda eyes are the same colour, along with her matching hand-stitched nose and tickly toes. This colourful panda also has a fluffy bib and the rest of her fur is a winter white.

She is accessorised with a two-tone organza ribbon, making her a very beautiful panda, that will stand out in your collection.

Alison is from the Charlie Bears 2017 Collection.

Designed by Isabelle Lee and co-designed by Charlotte Morris.




Charlie Bears CHICA

The short pile black plush that we have used for our new baby panther Chica is exquisite, thick and luxurious. She is fully jointed and has small sculptured paw pads and a long chunky tail.  

She has a small hand embroidered nose and a wide-eyed expression with mesmerizing black and yellow eyes. Like Sheba from the 2016 collection, she has been created with a slightly animated look so you would be forgiven if you thought she had pounced straight out of a storybook. She wears a pretty pink sheer ribbon as her accessory.



Charlie Bears - JAGO

Jago is an adorable panda bear. made from silky soft plush in traditional panda colours, black and white.
Jago has two black eyes with small eye white detail underneath which creates the Charlie Bears signature “who me?” look as well as hand stitched nose.
He is fully jointed and has sculpted paw pads on his hands, where as his feet are flat so that he is able to stand up!
Simple accessories have been created in the form of small thread collar necklaces with flower pendants.

Look out for Ginny, the perfect panda companion for this little bear cub!



With such a gentle vibe, this pretty red panda, Paignton is bound to win many hearts. A fantabulous design, by Isabelle Lee with Charlotte Morris, exclusively for Charlie Bears, Bearhouse Collection.

Paignton is 43cm / 17" tall and non jointed with an oversized tail and bent legs. She has been sewn, from a mix of gloriously tactile and luxurious plushes in brown auburn tones. Dense rich chocolate for her torso and limbs, with velvet smooth cocoa paws and white inner ears. A shaggy textured, pale chestnut for her back, mixed with a fluffy, glossy auburn for her balancing tail, plus the addition of a crisp white, for her endearing face. A kissable, black plush nose, with glistening, two tone eyes upon eyewhites for emphasis and a sumptuous, golden satin bow, plus a significantly cuddly feel, all add that pawfectly magical charm!

Bear Fact - Paignton is named after Paignton Zoo and their Red Panda enclosure.



Charlie Bears - PORTIA & PREMA

Here we have the most proud Mummy (Portia), with the most enchanting Baby (Prema), as a Pawfect Polar Bear Pair, designed by Isabelle Lee with Charlotte Morris exclusively for Charlie Bears.

Portia is 56cm / 22" tall and Prema is 39cm / 15.5" tall, both are fully jointed, with a gentle elbow curve to their arms, for greater snuggling. They have been sewn from a luxuriously soft and dense, semi fluffy, arctic white plush with wonderfully tactile, light grey paws, which are sculpted with stitch defined toes. They have smaller, glossy eyes and a kissable, hand stitched nose, plus delicate airbrushing, along with scissor sculpting and shaving (for those magnificent head shapes), bringing shape and definition, to their captivating faces and tickle paws. Wonderfully glorious!

Charlie Bears - RUDD

The Bearhouse collection this year has been inspired by Charlie?s many visits to zoos and a selection of wild and wacky characters have been introduced, some for the very first time! Rudd our new penguin has been named after a real life penguin who is still a resident at Chester zoo!! This wonderful character, just like his name sake, has a cheeky demeanour about him and being softly filled and weighted he also gives the best cuddles. The super soft plushes we have used to create little Rudd really do add to this he most certainly is as Charlie says a perfect cuddle companion. He can be displayed anywhere and is as comfortable on a shelf as he is on a bed. He has said that he does like to travel and loves water so a quick trip to the washing machine is not a problem either.
