Highly recommended Lucie and the bears, her attention to detail is magnificent. I believe that this page has had bad... reviews due to an awful torrent of lies. I am an advocate for small businesses and the stories behind the Teddy bears is beautiful. You won't be disappointed 🙂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

A clients dear Mr Teddy completed today. He was more wrecked than he looks, very strange two layered fabric skin, with 3 burst beanbags inside. I had to line the whole of this bear with soft stretchy fabric amd re do nearly every seam. Client chose new Amber eyes. Nurse Skunkhound chose to give him hand knit dungarees to protect him further. He's taken quite a few hours! But worth it.

I've come home to this gruesome scene, toxic foam 'blood' everywhere and scraps of skin, a poor clients dog attack casualty. Hes being tended to by 'Blondie' (for adoption) as she says she's made by Wendy Boston too. Look out Blondie, I'm sure thats matrons cap you have borrowed! Let's stem the bleeding and plan for surgery in the morning.
