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.

Each Great British Teddy Bear is handmade from the highest quality plush and stands 28cm tall. Every Teddy Bear and their costume has been tested to exceed all international toy safety standards: EN71 1/2/3 & ASTMF 963 CPSIA.

    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.
