About Us


Since 1983, teddy bear connoisseurs and serious collectors of fine plush have turned to Teddy Bear & Friends as their primary resource for in-depth features, collector tips, expert advice, bear-making techniques, news, show reports, and page after page filled with sumptuous photos of the world’s most beautiful bears.


TBR_6-2012_webIn 2012, the magazine merged with Teddy Bear Review. Now published six times a year, Teddy Bear & Friends embraces the joy of teddy bear and soft-sculpture collecting. It shows its readers how to find collectible bears, understand their cost, see new creations, and enjoy brilliantly sweet designs. From antique and modern teddies to artist and manufacturer designs, Teddy Bear & Friends has everything the avid bear collector wants.



Teddy Bear & Friends also runs and sponsors the Teddy Bear of the Year (TOBY) Awards — an industry-wide competition that recognizes excellence in teddy bear and soft-sculpture artistry. Entries in the competition are judged by both industry experts and collectors.
