THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF CHARLIE BEARS Charlie Bears collectable bears and characters are designed by Charlie at The Bearhouse in Cornwall. In this new Collectors Catalogue for 2017, Charlie has continued her fairytale theme from the 2016 catalogue with new magical fairytale characters in the Isabelle Fairytale Collection including the bear- illiant Princess FiFi & Rebitt shown here. In addition to the Fairytale characters, we have the new Charlie Bears Plush Collection, the Charlie Bears 2017 Year Bears and the Minimo Collection, which includes mini fairytale characters you might find at the bottom of your garden. And of course we have the new Isabelle Collection of highly collectable limited edition mohair bears, which Charlie designs in collaboration with world- renowned bear artist Isabelle Lee. Lovingly made by hand, each bear has their own unique characteristics and this is why only Charlie Bears are known as the bears with personalities. MESSAGE FROM CHARLI E Adding a teddy bear into my hug is not always an easy decision for me. There are so many different qualities that I look for in my bears. I never tire in my search for a new companion and still find lots of characters out there that I know I would love to share my time with, which every year end up on a bear wish list. I know many of our collectors feel exactly the same and as such I try to create new and very different personalities each year that my fellow arctophiles can find on their own personal journeys. The magical line up in this year’s collection has been inspired by this desire and I hope there are one or two that have made it onto your bear wish lists too!
