Miyuki Wada Bears – Miyuki Teddy Bear, History, Information

Miyuki Wada is a teddy bear artist from Ashiya City, Japan and makes bears under the name Miyuki Bears. She started making bears in 1983 after her husband returned from the United States with a bear for her. She made her first bear for her baby, with the body of yellow toweling and wooden buttons for its joints and a small music box in the tummy. To date, she has created over 400 designs that she works on late at night while her children sleep and each new bear spends it’s first night with her children. Typical Miyuki teddy bears are made from European mohair and cotton plush and come with clothes and accessories. Two of her more popular teddy bears are “Popo”, and “Percy”.
