Fun at Vermont Teddy Bear Factory

All sorts of Bears, even a gift for Mom!

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.
