Stacy Lee Terry Bears – Bo Teddy Bear, History, Information

Stacy Lee Terry is a teddy bear artist from England making bears under the name Bo Bears. She started making bears in 1988, designing every bear herself, with wild bears being the inspiration for her creations. She usually makes limited edition and one of a kind teddy bears. She has supplied many celebrities with bears like Laura Ashley, Nigel Mansell and H.R.H. Prince Charles. She uses an industrial machine to make the body of the bear and finishes by hand. Typical Stacy Lee Terry bears are usually made of mohair, have glass eyes and hand embroidered noses. Two of her more popular bears are “Winterburn” and “Shortcake”.

    Hello Mary, would you know if Bo Bears are still in production ? I have several, including Tinker Tailor, Marley, Fitz, Taffy, Captain and smaller bears. I am not looking to buy at present but wondering if I should start passing these on to my younger relatives as I am now in my 70s.

    Hi I have two of Stacey’s bears but would be interested in purchasing new ones as a lot of them have such adorable expressions . However not seen a lot for sale but I tend to be a bit hit and miss with looking . I especially like the bigger bears though would consider any Bo Bears .Thanks
