Gordon is a bear from a military background and became a double amputee following contact with the OC’s Jack Russell.... He’s a limited edition, laying down kind of bear. I didn’t think much could be done for him, his arm fur was in shreds, pads missing/in tatters BUT The Teddy Bear Nurse came to the rescue - did an amazing job repairing him, his ‘scars’ are invisible and he is back to his former self. He returned home with a little friend, to keep an eye on him during his recovery. I really can’t recommend the TBN enough - amazing talent. (Before and after photos included)read more

The Teddy Bear nurse did a great job on my daughters two bears. She’s had them for over 10 years. They were pretty... empty, pretty grubby and in need of some TLC. She kept us updated as they were being done because my daughter was very distressed with them not being in her bed!What a lovely meaningful job!read more

Lucie is being harassed and bullied by a self-acclaimed singer (albeit completely off-key) called Kathleen Harris. This... is all over Lucie’s request to sing with her partner’s band, which she did so well it upset Kathleen. See her page kathleenharrisofficial where you can see evidence in the shape of posts criticising Lucie. The perpetrator’s equally deranged children, Prestyn Lee Gingell-Harris and Oliver Harris, are now leaving fake reviews on teddy bear restoration sites aimed at Lucie, although this is likely Kathleen herself using their profiles. This lady nor her children have never had a bear restored in their lives and their reviews are fake, aiming at causing harassment and distress to Lucie.read more

I really , seriously recommend this service. If you have a teddy or softie that needs a little tlc this is the place to... send them. My Wee Ted is 61 and he really needed a spa day so I sent him off for some pampering. He’s come back like a new Ted , ready to face another 60 years of adventures and love! We also adopted his twin,Josh, who seems like he’s going to be a cheeky wee chap. Wee Ted was only gone a few days, super service all round. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,Teddy Bear Nurse.read more
