Make your own bear with Make my Bear

The make your own bear concept has been around for a number of years and is believed to have started in the USA with companies such as Build-a-Bear and Cuddles and friends. Make my Bear was set up in 2011, and is a Sydney based family run business. You can make your own bear at home or at a party venue.make your own bear

Make your own Teddy Bear at Vacation Care

We have also provided a lot of make your own bear kits to vacation care centres where it has proved to be a very popular activity. Children love this activity and enrollments generally tend to increase on the days that this activity is in the program.

It has also been used very successfully as a fundraiser for schools, hospitals and charities.

The History

Make my bear’s founder, Karen, left university to follow a career in IT which brought her from the UK to Australia., Karen spent 25 years in the IT industry but when children came along she grew tired of jugging family and corporate life.

Karen has two wonderful children and knows first hand what’s required to make a fun filled and engaging kids party. She set about developing the “Make My Bear” business to provide other parents with a family friendly and cost effective option to hosting their own children’s party at home.

The goal was clear from the start, “I wanted to provide something fun for the children to do, yet engaging enough to keep them happy. It also needed to be quick and easy to arrange. Allowing busy parents to order on line and then receive their complete party package a few days later.”

As the business grows, we are continuing to look to extend our range of bears and accessories, and as such we value your feedback and comments. We have added tie-dye kits and children’s t-shirts as a result of customer feedback.

We hope you enjoy browsing our site and look forward to providing you and your children a party experience they will remember and cherish forever.
