Please note that my bears are NOT toys but are designed for the
adult collector and are not suitable for children under
the age of 14 years old.

My designs will always include metal nuts and bolts for the
joints and may include steel shot in a muslin bag
deep inside the tum area therefore making them
unsuitable for young children to play with.


My bears vary such a lot in size and weight which means it is
therefore very difficult to quote a general price for postage
here as it is obviously also dependent on destination etc.

Therefore I have to treat each bear and order separately
so please feel free to contact me and I will be able to
advise you on the postal costs for the specific bear you like.

For the UK, I currently like to use one of three services -
U.P.S. with their Next Day delivery, Royal Mail Special Delivery
to guarantee delivery by 1 p.m. the next day, or
Parcelforce 24/48 depending on the size of the bear .

Please note that I do not "hide" postage costs within the cost of my bears;
any postal costs are advised showing the proper postal charges.

Overseas posting:

The cost of overseas postage will be fully advised at the time
of ordering a bear as obviously prices can vary quite dramatically
from one country to another according to the size and
weight of the adopted bear
.  For European postings, I like to use U.P.S.
or FedEx. If you have a preferred method, please let me know.


Payments can be made by either cheque or by
a credit card using Paypal (you don't need a
Paypal account in order
to use this facility). Please contact
me with regard to any payment.

Please note that a bear will not be despatched until funds have been cleared.

Lay-away Service:

I have experienced a few problems with my lay-away service in the past
so I am now having to put my "business" hat on and make a few ground rules!
(I have been told I am "way too soft"!!)

So, for NEW customers who would like to pay by this method,
I am now having to ask for the first payment
(half the price of the bear plus postage)
to be made at the time of ordering a bear please, with the
subsequent remaining payment being made a month later.
If no payment has been received/confirmed within three days
of the initial order, then the bear will return for sale on my website.
If I feel that "problems are on the horizon", then I will regrettably
have to withdraw my offer of layaway to that individual.

But for all EXISTING customers who would like to pay on "layaway",
arrangements can still be made on an individual basis, though I would
still like the initial payment to be made at the time
of ordering the bear please.
Thank you!

Special Commissioned Orders:

I am so sorry but I am not able to take on any more special
commission orders at the moment.
