Advice on choosing a teddy bear for your baby, plus the opportunity to purchase a range of teddy's including soft, personalised and collectilble bears.
Teddy bears are perhaps one of the most traditional baby gifts as their appeal is timeless - a cuddly bear will always be a fantastic playmate for a young infant.
A favourite bear is a willing play companion and a comforter all rolled into one and there is such a huge selection to choose from. In addition to the traditional variety, bears that play music, talk, light up or move are also available and can make a really unique present.
As bears tend to be a 'go everywhere' toy, when choosing one for a young baby there are some precautions you should take. You must check that the eyes and any buttons are firmly fastened in place and that the bears fur is not too long or easily pulled out so as to prevent choking. Additionally, you should check that the bear has been designed as a toy for babies (rather than a novelty item for adults) and so meets current EU toy safety standards.
It is also important to remember that bears or any other toy animal should not be left in your baby's cot or crib while they rest or sleep.
