Hi I am a new member, I live with my 8 bears in Ilfracombe and didn't know I was a collector until I bought 2 new teddies and sent off for catherine and Kiplinganother which arrived this morning and I thought maybe I could be a proper collector and subscribe to your club!  Marcie xx

These are my most recently acquired bears I do have more teds but they are a bit too old to pose for the camera!
These in the picture are called Chockie, Katherine and Kiplling .

Love Marcie

Glad you've joined in the fun!

Welcome to the forum, Marcie!  :rose:
I am kind of curious to see which bears have stolen your heart.  Could you post a picture of them?  :teddybear:

We're very pleased to have you as a member of Teddy Talk, Marcie!  Believe me, it doesn't take long to get addicted to teddies.

Marcie, I saw your post about the Steiff ice bear. I'm not familiar with the bear, but I wanted to share this supplier's website. They take their own photos, so it's another way to judge from afar in addition to the Steiff catalog picture: http://www.two4toys.com/catalog/index.php

You can also search on ebay for listings where people have photographed the actual bear in the fur.

You are so right, Marcie!  :thumbsup:

Are these three beauties all Charlie Bears?  I'm quite sure Catherine and Kipling are, but I am not too sure about Chockie.
I also have several Charlie Bears in my hug (mostly from previous years).  Did you know that they have a collector's club as well?

Hi Becky, thank you so much for the advice! it is too late though, I sulked all day the day before yesterday and hubby finally bowed down to pressure and ordered my beautiful ice bear. I am waiting for the postman now if he doesn't come today (Saturday) I will have to wait until Monday. This bear thing has really got to me bear_wub Marcie (Princess Marcie of Ilfracombe)

Good on hubby! That's a very handsome bear, and the two of you look terrific together. bear_original I really like the bear's size, the subtle color combination, the historical touches, plus a good growler is just plain fun!

You have to feed him of course!  :D
He is a beautiful bear; I still love my Steiff bears and every now and then I get seduced into adopting another.  :teddybear:

As far as the Charlie Bears Club is concerned, you can find all the information on the Charlie Bears website : http://www.charliebears.com/
You will find the information under the "JOIN UP - BEST FRIENDS" heading.

What I like about the club is that you get detailed information about all the new collections as soon as they are released and you get the possibility to adopt a few exclusive club bears at a very reasonable price. 
My Christmas present to myself is going to be "Sig Hugalot" a big 32" plush bear exclusive for the club members bear_wub :

Love your new Icebear!  Be sure to give him a cup of tea with honey to warm him from his journey! (perhaps you should drionk the tea for him?)

Don't worry Marcie, there is a saying in the teddy bear world: "there's always room for one more".  bear_smile

I just love these big Charlie Bears (and I love his name too  bear_laugh )
Those two are sure to become best friends (if not more...)  :whistle:
Did you give Peterbear (aka Conrad) his scarf to keep him nice and warm?

Don't sulk, Lenora; be especially kind to him and when he is in a good mood, tell him what you want (he won't be able to say no)!  :D
