This tour is fun for all ages. You learn the process of the creation of these teddy bears. From the start of the business to final product. The bear hospital is quite unique where they save damaged bears. This company stands 100% behind their products. Make this a stop!

Took my wife, 6 yo daughter, and 8 yo son for the tour. They added a scavenger hunt of sorts for the kids to do on the tour and both of my children had a blast. Yes it cost a few dollars (I think it was around $6 for the whole family with a military discount) and the bears themselves... More

Teddy Bears in every size adorned in every type of costume you can imagine. Excellent for the kids or the very young at heart (in this case, my wife). She enjoyed it very much and bought several tee shirts. One can observe Teddy bear makers doing their craft.

We stopped in on our way into Burlington and enjoyed our visit. While neither one of us are Vermont Teddy Bear collectors, it was cool to see where they make them and their gift shop. Definitely a must do for kids.

The Vermont Teddy Bears are truly Vermont made! We enjoyed our tour and visit to the factory. Our guide was pleased to share details of the assembly line and answered our questions very well. The store has a variety of items for sale (we wanted a little souvenir) from a few dollars to many. This was a nice way to... More

Vermont success story, the tour is interesting and a good balance of lecture and showmanship. The guide was great and you get to see enough of the factory area to get a good picture on how they make the bears.

Such a fun place to stop and see an adorable process. I was a bit skeptical about spending time here with so many things to do in the area, but I was presently surprised at how much fun it really was. You wont be disappointed!

We didn't do the tour based on reviews here but this is a must it you're in the area. The bears and outfits in the store are so adorable. It's just fun to browse! I was gonna buy an overpriced bear dressed up like a skier but they were sold out!!! Oh well. Free to browse the store and it... More
