Welcome, Bear Collectors!
My Sunshine Teddy Bears are designed for the serious collector and teddy bear lovers worldwide. Each Sunshine Teddy Bear is hand-sewn from a variety of fur colors and styles and is fully jointed. Sunshine Teddy Bears are collectibles and are not intended to be toys for small children.
The trademark over-sized ears of Sunshine Teddy Bears add to the appeal of these wondrous creatures - they bring love, comfort and joy to the homes and hearts of their owners. Sunshine Teddy Bears are available dressed or undressed; their clothing is as unique as each bear, and no two are ever dressed alike. My weekends are often spent combing antique stores, and I am constantly on the look-out for antique dresses or hats for my bears.
The Sunshine Teddy Bears you see pictured on this website have already been adopted, but each one serves as an example of the type of clothing or accessories you can expect when you order. For example, Anastasia will always wear a white antique dress and she will have a handmade fur coat, purse and hat as accessories, but her actual dress will be slightly different from the one pictured.
Memory Bears, Grandchild Bears And Families Of Bears
"Memory bears" are special order bears that wear your child's or grandchild's first baby outfit, or I can use a piece of clothing from a loved one to create a new outfit for your bear. Jaxon (pictured at the right), is an example of a "memory" bear. Jaxon is wearing an outfit from his "tiny" days, an outfit that was one his parents' favorites, but one Jaxon had outgrown (kids grow so fast!). An example of a "family of bears" are the Sunshine Teddy Bears I created for a blended family - each bear was designed around a family member's special interest or talent. Questions? Ideas? Visit the "Contact Dawn" page on this website and tell me what you'd like me to create for you!
Certificates Of Authenticity, Hang Tags And Bear Names
Each Sunshine Teddy Bear comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity, a hang tag with their name and registration number. If your bear is a special order memory bear, or a bear in your family of bears, then the name of the bear on the Certificate of Authenticity and hang tag will be the name of your choice.
Each Bear Has An Individual Page On My Website
Each Sunshine Teddy Bear has an individual page on this website, and you can "navigate" the website in several different ways. If you want to view the bears by name, just Please browse through my gallery or slide show. You can view the details on each individual bear by clicking on their picture.
Thank you for visiting, stay awhile, the bears and I love the company!
