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.

Are you ready to listen to another of Vince the Veteran’s teddy tails?

Are you ready to listen to another of Vince the Veteran’s teddy tails? As you know my teddy chums, I have had a very long military career serving in the British Armed Forces. Today I would like to tell you about another experience of mine that occurred during the Second World War. It was summer 1940; I was among many brave bears that had recently been rescued from the shores of Dunkirk. Unfortunately, we had little time to lick our bear wounds, this was war and we were back in action! Hitler, the nasty old bear, was scared of us Brit bears and he wanted us to surrender! How dare he, did he not understand that we are made of tough fur! He came up with a dastardly plan – his Luftwaffe (German Air Force) would try to wipe out the British, Royal Air Force.

Emma Iannarilli: My Special Teddy Bear

My special Teddy Bear is on that I was given when I was born. I was actually presented with four large bears when I was born, one from each of my parents, and one each from my nan and granddad, but this is the only one that I still have in my possession, and I think the reason for this is that it is a very unusual choice to give to a new born baby. My parents were really young when I was born, and money was a bit scarce. Dad used to walk a good distance to get to work each day, and on the route he passed a toy shop.
