You may be thinking that the Vermont Teddy Bear factory is just a place to sell tourists yet another teddy bear, but for Vermont families, the tour can offer a lot more.
First, it is an easy one hour drive from Stowe through the rolling countryside. On the ride you will see the spring flowering trees in bloom and the new farm animal babies frolicking in the fields.
When you get to the Factory in the outskirts of Shelburne, VT, one of the first things you will notice are the picnic tables outside. They are great for bringing your own lunch or purchasing a snack inside to enjoy in the fresh air.
Inside, you get to watch as the teddy bears are made, from lay out to sewing and stuffing. Much of this process is done by hand, so the steps are very interesting to watch.
