This is kind of geeky... But don't forget trade dress.
Trade dress is a legal term of art that generally refers to characteristics of the visual appearance of a product or its packaging ... that signify the source of the product to consumers.
In England, you also have the rule of "Passing Off:"
In common law countries such as England, Australia and New Zealand, passing off is a common law tort which can be used to enforce unregistered trade mark rights. The tort of passing off protects the goodwill of a trader from a misrepresentation.
The law of passing off prevents one trader from misrepresenting goods or services as being the goods and services of another, and also prevents a trader from holding out his or her goods or services as having some association or connection with another when this is not true.
The shape of a Coca Cola bottle or the color and design of a box of Kodak film are two examples of trade dress.
Your Bears are as distinctive as Coca Cola bottles or Kodak film. Nobody else's Bears look like yours. Pairing up the name "Strawbeary Designs of Lancashire" with the style and design of your Bears gives you the same right to prevent others from selling Bears that look like yours.
I think you have a protectable asset in the name, trade dress and design of your Bears that you could register if you were of the mind.
Kodak film comes in yellow boxes.
Coca Cola comes in curvy, glass bottles.
"Strawbeary Designs of Lancashire" has a nice ring to it.
It would differentiate you from others and, if you can prove that your name predates the others you could also say, "The Original Strawbeary Designs."
But I would go with "Strawbeary Designs of Lancashire" because I think it has a classy ring to it.
It works with Casper. :)
His favorite cat circle is just a piece of yarn, tied in a circle. We just leave it on the floor wherever Casper likes to play. In less than five minutes, he'll be sitting in it.
In fact, we came downstairs, yesterday morrning to find him sitting in his cat circle. We don't know how long he had been sitting right there. He'll often sit in his circle for ten or fifteen minutes. :D
Many cat experts have conjectured as to why cats like circles but nobody really knows for sure.
Draw a circle on the floor. It doesn't matter what it's made from. It could be tape, chalk or a circle of objects... Almost anything. A few minutes later, your cat will come along and sit inside the circle.
Nobody really knows why... It's just a "cat thing."
Make a circle out of tape...
...then the cat comes along...
Nobody really knows why...
I guess it just drives them banannas. ;)
