Our iconic Memory Bears are handcrafted with love to help preserve memories for years to come! Made up of parts from a time period in your past that you deeply cherish, these memory bears are 11 inches tall and lined with interfacing to hold their shape. They can be played with or kept some place safe. All bear's have a heart on their chest where you can include a name, short quote, or a date. Please note in the shipping details section if customization of the heart is desired for your Memory Bear.
Bears made from Adult Clothing need: a minimum of 1 med sized shirt. The more item's you have the more colorful the bear will be.
