Florence Nightingale


Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing and is recognised by nurses around the world. Our Florence Nightingale Bear wears a miniature of the dress once worn by ‘Nightingale nurses’, and carries a replica of her famous lamp. Her khaki canvas bag holds three little bandages so that she can nurse any injured toys she meets as she travels the globe.

The Florence Nightingale teddy bear is one of most highly detailed teddy bears. Replicating the outfit worn by nurses in that era. The bag also contains 3 bandages to provide more authenticity and detail to the Florence Nightingale teddy bear. A perfect gift for a family or friend who is a currently or has been a nurse.

    This has just got to be the cutest teddy bear I have ever seen. I have just bought this for my granddaughter who is absolutely obsessed with Florence Nightingale. The bear is gorgeous and extremely well made. My granddaughter has hardly stopped cuddling her.

    Florence Nightingale is a great little gift for someone and was bought for my mother and she loved it. Made her smile and to this day is a great talking point.

Hello my teddy friends, my name is Sydney and I am a soldier in the British army. I am here to tell you about the tough job I have in keeping all you little bears safe. I have served in her Majesty’s Armed Forces for 5 bear years now; it feels such as long time. I started my exciting career in the army when I was only 18 years old.

He will do absolutely anything to capture me and my merry bear men! Well let me tell you all about his latest tricks. As I’m sure you know, (because I have been shouting all over the woods) I am in love.

My First Teddy bear story by Bethany Maples

Being the “I want, want, want “child I was I use to asking my mum for everything. Being the spoilt child I was I used to get one thing, play with it for a few weeks and then move on to something new. I suppose most children these days are similar but, as much as I love my mum, she didn’t half let me get away with a lot of things. We were shopping at the Trafford Centre and went into one of the departments stores which I think was Debenhams and they had a few teddy bears on offer and it was then I saw “TB” which was a brown teddy bear with dark brown paws and feet.
