this is an incredible fabulous place! This place is interesting and impressive for everyone of any age! We went to Vermont for the holidays and were looking for a place to entertain our 7 year old daughter, I never thought that myself and my husband would also be pleasantly impressed and have so much magic before the New Year! These guys are doing a wonderful job and this wonderful tour costs only $ 5 for adults and children for free !!! They don't mind pets so we were with our dog! There is a great gift and souvenir shop and everything is very affordable and incredibly beautiful! And the tour is just magic and so many interesting facts! I would like to tell you how much good this wonderful place does, but I want to leave intrigue and great interest for future visitors (you can find out, feel and see it all with your own eyes on a tour of the factory)). I love this place! And I recommend to everyone, absolutely everyone to visit if you are in Vermont! Take your time and come! And I want to wish this sweet place more kind, grateful and believing in miracle visitors ❤️
Definitely worth the stop. The visit could be around 2 hours depending on how busy they are and if you choose to build your own bear. Tours run every 30 minutes. Graham led our tour which was an informative tour with some funny bear puns added. We definitely enjoyed it. You can visit the gift shop while you wait or after the tour. You can build your own teddy or purchase one. There are many other animals to chose from for purchase as well. Staff was friendly!
The tour is well worth the $5 to see the behind-the-scenes action! Our tour guide was lovely and she’s the one who assisted us when it came time to make our own bear! We opted for the jointed bear and had fun choosing our friend’s characteristics. The best part was assembling the bear myself!!! Incomparable experience!
Nothing but a treat every time I come here! Pleasant, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff with an amazing tour I've been on multiple times! Even if you're an adult without kids, you can absolutely enjoy yourself here. Definitely the cutest bears in the world and IMO they're worth the hefty price tag for just how much they hold up and how uniquely they're made :)
I'm a geek! We went on the tour when the workers were off, the weekend, but we lucked out and bought a bone bear and Zombie Bear. The Bone Bear, the Bones and eyes glow in the dark! It is very soft to the touch for fur, but of course the bones are fabric. We were told there was only 3 of the Bear Bones left, and 5 Zombie Bears left when we were all cashed out. It was great to know we should visit a few times a year but we'll see what life brings.
