Merrythought Bears by Kathy Martin


Merrythought Bears by Kathy Martin

Merrythought is one of Britain's longest running British-made teddy bear firms with a dedicated international following for their quality, highly collectable bears whose lifesize models used to dominate stores such as Harrods and Hamleys. This book, with its quality colour illustrations and use of original sales material will appeal to teddy bear collectors as well as dedicated Merrythought fans and is full of tips on collecting the popular toys. Written by leading teddy bear expert, Kathy Martin, editor of Teddy Bear Scene and a regular on programmes such as QVC as well as a consultant to firms producing collectable bears, this is a must for collectors, dealers and those who loved their own Merrythought teddy bears when young. After a short-term closure, Merrythought was revived and will delight future generations. Its closure made headlines news, showing the enduring popularity of the quality bears.
