Library Journal Review

It is one of the ironies of the modern toy world that the traditional classic teddy bear with its bright button eyes can no longer be made for small children. However, the "collector's bear" has no such safety restrictions, with reproduction and newly designed bears in all sizes being made for the market. Written by two professional bear makers, this guide covers all the materials and techniques needed for making either child-safe or collector's bears and their clothing. Illustrated with full-color photographs, the book offers step-by-step instructions and a gallery of finished bears by an international group of crafters. An excellent choice for public libraries.
