Welcome to Silly Bears

Housed in an exquisitely decorated 18th Century haven, Silly Bears is home to more than 500 Artist and Vintage collectable teddy bears and art dolls from around the world.

Seasonal themes and limited editions make up the collections, which change four times per annum. Our secure pay online shopping facility is fully-automated and is available 24/7 allowing access to artist bears and dolls every day of the year. Please use the links at the top of the page to peruse the wonderful work, or simply learn more about Silly Bears and what we have in store for the months ahead.

In tribute to the longest day of the calendar year, and in celebration of the height of summer, this midsummer’s day Saturday the 25th of June 2016, Silly Bears shall be hosting an Afternoon of Pure Indulgence. This day marks the beginning of the Highland Gatherings and so, to welcome the coming summer months Silly Bears in their lavishly decorated 18th Century haven will be inviting customers and friends to gather in Silly Bears residence tucked away in the heart of the Granite City of Aberdeen. The meeting of our patrons mirrors the meeting of people at Highland Gatherings, each finding comfort in their shared appreciation of teddy bears and art dolls enjoyment of a little indulging Saturday afternoon.
 
The event will host a collective display of Silly Bears finest artists.  A selection of artists have created a beautiful collection of 'Teddy Bears and Friends' just for this Midsummers Day. This will be a marvellous collection of the distinguished talent presented magnificently for all to see on the day.
 
The Afternoon of Pure Indulgence allows for collectors to gather mid-year and reunite before the coming summer months. Only the finest quality, local produce shall be served to guests throughout the afternoon. Delectable savoury canapés will be offered to guests upon silver salvers. Croustades delicately filled with local smoked duck, plum chutney and rocket will melt in your mouth, the finest Scottish cheeses will be perfectly complemented by chutneys dolloped on delectable miniature oatcakes, mature seared fillet of highland beef will be balanced with horseradish on a delicious baked crostini, pea and mint will sit atop crostini's with perfectly aged parma ham and to balance all of these savoury delights the tastiest chewy local macarons in flavours of salted caramel, rose and raspberry, and cookies and cream will be on offer. And as these delectable treats disappear from the hands of the servers as will the delicious Parisian Daiquiri's being shaken and stirred by the wonderful DUSK mixologists. So popular were the treats they created in March, we couldn't resist being able to host them again. These offerings set the scene for an Afternoon of Pure Indulgence for all welcomed guests!  Merriment will start at 1pm and last until 4pm.
