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.

I rob from the rich and give to the poor; it is I, the outlaw, Robin Hood! Come hither my bear friends while I tell you all about my recent adventures. As you well know my merry bears and I have been living in the mighty Sherwood Forest, hiding from the evil bear named the Sheriff of Nottingham and his naughty cronies. This week, he almost captured me – so please, listen to my bear tale. That rotten Bear King John has been demanding taxes again from the poor bear folk of Sherwood.

Her Majesty, the Queen bear will now address her loving subjects. Good morrow to you my teddies. I am the bear Queen, head of state and ruler of the teddy United Kingdom. We have been advised to address one’s teddy subjects from time to time to inform them of our daily activities, and so I address you now my loving bears.
