    The Factory Tour was super! The tour guide was bubbly, informative, lively and very knowledgeable of the place and the process of making the bears, and was also very good at describing it in good ways to keep kids' interests, (which also pleased adults too as well!) The tour guide did a very great job at relating to the kids, and keeping their attention and interest in the tour. Also love the button bears- great way to promote the company and also great way to get rid of the 'scrap' material without throwing it into a landfill! The button bears...Read More

    We took our two young daughters to Vermont Teddy while on vacation. The teddy tour was fun for the kids, it was a little short for me personally. The Teddy bears are a little expensive but they are well worth it for lifetime guarantee.

    The factory tour was entertaining and fun. Learned a lot about the company and felt great about buying the bears from the store. There is a large selection of bears and the staff is always willing to help.

    We traveled to Vermont recently and stopped at Vermont Teddy Bear company. We loved the tour of the factory and all the handmade in Vermont bears. They even carry other made in VT products, including pewter jewelry, candies and such. Would recommend this company to anyone looking for something handmade and made in the USA!

The button bears are nice little, free souvenirs/mementos of the trip! Also the process of making the bears is cute too for the kids- the whole experience, from stuffing it to getting it sewn up!
