Hi, my name is Dawn and I began designing and making Teddy Bears for my own collection in 1992. A year later I designed a Teddy Bear for a friend and Sunshine Teddy Bears was born. Today my Teddy Bears are in collections throughout the United States.
Each Sunshine Teddy Bear is hand sewn from a variety of fur colors and styles and is fully jointed. Their trademark oversized ears add to the appeal of these wondrous creatures that bring love, comfort and joy to the homes and hearts of their owners. I fall hopelessly in love with each tiny face that emerges from a wad of fur. While I sew some of my bears from mohair, most are made from faux fur which allows for a price point any collector can afford. I design bears for customers who want a bear made as a special memory of a loved one or, as in the case of a newly blended family, a custom bear for each member of this wonderful blended family.
