I'm afraid I have never bought anything as we usually fly over to Belgium, but I do love to have a look in whenever in that area of Bruges. A wonderful collection of bears.

This shop specialises in toy bears and there is something here for everyone. If you collect bears then this is definitely worth a visit and if you want to give your loved one a toy bear then look no further.

I've been twice to this fabulous place. Stuffed full of teddies and owned by the most charming couple. All the bears are beautiful but the ones made by Marie, the owner are incredible. There's nowhere else like it.

Excellent shop and fantastic owner, who stood up tall to welcome us when we walked in. Our only regret is not buying a teddy. However, we do intend to revisit and make a purchase or two. A must visit for anyone in Brugge.

As other reviewers have said, the owner is a wonderful gentleman who loves to talk about Belgium and any other topic you can possibly imagine. We read about this shop and decided that we would make a special trip to Bruges. We were not disappointed!...More
