I love this place. Every year we come here when we are in Vermont. We like the rescue bears, buy one give one to first responders. Thank you to Vermont Teddy Bear Factory for doing this. I'm sure little ones appreciate it when they are sad.

We had a great time on the tour! Mark was beary punny. Made bears and shopped for cheap pjs ($10 a set! And usually someone else's name embroidered on them haha!) but the best part was having the love of my life propose out front by the bride and groom bears!!

My girlfriend wanted to visit. We went and paid a couple bucks per person for the tour. It was actually fun. Got to see how they make their bears. We even spent about half an hour looking through their shop at the different types of bears they had. Definitely a fun place to visit.

Fun stop for kids, obviously, but also enjoyable for teenagers with good attitudes who haven't yet decided to hate everything their parents like. The tour is interesting, cute and funny. And not too long. There are typically slightly irregular bears for a fraction of the cost (usually half). We got a huge bear with one foot that had been sewn... More

Spent the day on site for Easter activities and a first time visit to the factory. The tour was free today (unknown bonus) and my 7yo had a great time building his bear and picking out his outfit. We enjoyed the factory for a day trip from the upper valley of NH

We took the tour and watched the children play they all seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun made it really fun for the children and adults alike. And of course we bought teddy bears for our grandchildren and they absolutely love them!

The fact that they expect you to believe that all those bears are made in that factory is laughable. During the tour only 3 people were at their working stations. 2 of which were reading a book, and the other was texting....I'm sure a lot of work gets done that way. It was a Wednesday at 10am, regular factory hours.... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your visit to our factory. All of our bears are indeed made in our factory here in Vermont - our wonderful production staff members are scheduled for a break from 10am-10:15am, which is what you may have witnessed during your 10am tour. We're happy to hear your son enjoyed... More

Went here with my niece who loves teddy bears. The factory was adorable yet very high priced and seemed a bit touristy. My niece loved it however. We looked around for a while, played outside and she was able to pick out a teddy. Employees were attentive as well.
