In the past few years the Cherished Teddies scene in Australia has undergone some fairly
dramatic changes. Many of the gift stores that sold these delightful collectable fi gurines didn’t
stock a very big selection or they no longer carry them so collectors have been having trouble
locating a good reliable supply.
Well the good news for collectors is that Australia’s largest teddy bear retailers Nana’s
Teddies & Toys in Blaxland is also one of the biggest Cherished Teddies stockists in the country
and has thousands of Cherished Teddies in stock.
In fact Nana’s carries every design that is still available through the distributors and also
has a very large selection of now retired and hard to fi nd designs including some International
exclusive pieces that Nana’s obtains by swapping Australian exclusive designs with their
Nana’s have an unbeatable deal on 4 now retired Australian exclusives, Bondi Lifeguards
Merv & Sheela, plus two special designs that were made for the Sydney Olympic Games, Sidney
& Matilda. All 4 designs are at discounted prices with an extra super saving if you buy all 4.
They have a huge online catalogue with a big section dedicated to Cherished Teddies.

THE HISTORY OF CHERISHED TEDDIES
The Cherished Teddies® collection is celebrating its 16th Anniversary. Cherished Teddies®
is one of the world’s leading teddy bear gift and collectible brands, which is sold in more than
10 countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and Australia. Enesco Group,
Inc., a leader in the giftware, and home and garden décor industries, introduced the collection
in 1992 with 16 teddy bear fi gurines designed by artist Priscilla Hillman.
Sculpted in cold cast resin, Cherished Teddies® fi gurines have an individual name and
message of friendship and love, which is chosen by Hillman. Each fi gurine comes with a
Certifi cate of Adoption so collectors can offi cially “”adopt”” the teddy bears and hundreds of
thousands of fi gurines have been registered to date.
The Cherished Teddies® collection was born in 1990 when Hillman sent 36 original oil
paintings of her teddy bears to Enesco, which transformed her drawings into three-dimensional
fi gurines. Cherished Teddies® soon became Enesco’s fastest growing collectible, and today,
the collection accounts for millions in annual sales.
In 1999, Hillman’s son, Glenn, joined her in designing many of the new Cherished Teddies®
fi gurines. His fi rst series was called Teddies in Motion. He makes appearances with his mother
and has been well received by Cherished Teddies® collectors.
Responding to overwhelming consumer enthusiasm, Enesco formed the Cherished Teddies
ClubTM in 1995. The Cherished Teddies ClubTM informs and entertains more than 75,000
worldwide membears through special events, a club newsletter and members only benefi ts. The
Australian Club Membearships are now administered from the UK offi ce Cherished Teddies®
has been honored with numerous awards in the gift and collectibles industry.
Since the collection’s fi rst retirement in 1995, Enesco has retired a selection of fi gurines
each year, enhancing the fi gurine’s value and collectibility. Once a fi gurine is retired, the mold
is broken and it will never be produced again, increasing its value in the secondary market.
