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.

Ship Ahoy! Here comes our Navy Bear to tell you a bear-tail or two about the Royal Navy. Ahoy there me hearties! No, I am not a pirate, even better, I am the Navy Bear and I am here to tell you a little bit about my time on the seven seas! I am proud to say I am a member of her Majesty’s Armed Forces; I am a sailor in the Royal Navy. Most of my life is spent out at sea defending and protecting my teddy kingdom.

Hello, it’s me again the graduate teddy bear and blimey it’s been quiet since summer is over. I’m one of the most popular teddy bears at British Teddies around June and July but as the summer comes to the end nobody wants me, don’t feel sad though as I will become loved again after Christmas as some students graduate around this time of year. There is hope for the other graduation teddy bear to find a home before the next summer period. When March and April come around its time to get excited for the Graduation Bears as we know all those lovely students are going to be taking their exams and/or handing in their final dissertations or reports.

It’s me again, Sherlock Holmes Bear! It is my business to know what other people don't know! How are those bear detective skills coming along my teddy chums? Greetings my bear friends! I have a particular conundrum I need your help with; we will require logic and the powers of deduction, the game is afoot! Only a few nights ago, a young bear gent by the name of Lord Robert St Simon came to request the services of Watson and I. This young bear gent had been married a few days before to a beautiful bear named Hatty. Lord Robert told us that his new bear-bride had disappeared, completely vanished! Naturally the young bear-gent was quite emotional and could hardly hold back his tears while he relayed the bear tale. All had appeared to be well; the young teddy couple had arrived at church and exchanged rings and vows.
