Vermont Teddy Bear has over 100 bears to choose from, and every Vermont Teddy Bear is delivered with free gourmet chocolate and a personalized gift card in our famous box. Vermont Teddy Bears are the ONLY bears handmade in America and guaranteed for life. They're sure to please children (and adults!) of all ages, making the best Bears in the universe for over 20 years -- and every bear is lovingly designed, cut, sewn, stuffed, and stitched right in Vermont.

The company was founded by John Sortino, who was playing with his son Graham and his collection of teddy bears. Surprised to see that every one of his sonís bears wore a tag identifying it as foreign made, Sortino was inspired to bring this American tradition back to its roots by handcrafting bears in the U.S.. His first bears, Bearcho, Buffy, Bearazar, and Fuzzy Wuzzy, were made in his wifeís sewing room and sold mostly to friends. By 1983, Sortino began to sell his bears from a peddlerís cart at an open-air market in Burlington, Vermont. It took 4 days to sell his first bear and a year to sell 200. One day, a customer gave him a terrific idea. A tourist visiting Burlington wanted a bear, but she wanted it mailed to her home. That gave Sortino the idea to package a teddy bear and add delivery service and other extras to go along with it. The Bear-Gram concept was born. Calls for Bear-Grams flooded the Companyís 3 telephone lines and within the first 2 days, and Vermont Teddy Bear reached its sales goal for the entire year!
