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. The shop has as much heritage and character as the creations it displays, we hope the website reflects a similar charm. The combination of nostalgia and the artisan creates the beautiful, diverse and innovative selection of work we are lucky enough to house, both physically and virtually. 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.

Retirement of Julieann Bruce
We wish to formally announce that Proprietor Julieann Bruce has made the decision to retire. Therefore, along with the Silly Bears team, we have come to the conclusion that Silly Bears, 13 Marischal Street, Aberdeen, will be closed from today, Monday 1st of August 2016. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers and, of course our artists for their dedication, skill and exquisite creations that temporarily lived in the walls of our 18th century haven.
Our website will remain open until the close of October in case you wish to purchase a final lasting memory of everything Silly Bears once was.
It truly has been a marvellous nine years. Thank you all for being part of it.
