Deans & Merrythought Bears

Deans and Merrythought are two of the longest standing manufacturers of british teddy bears, with both of them still producing bears today.

The Deans Rag Book Company opened their doors in 1903, with the first teddy bear coming off their production line in 1915.  Merrythought have been producing teddy bears from their English Heritage site since 1930, and as well as producing a variety of artist designed bears also still produce bears in the Merrythought Cheeky style.
