Established in 1998, KR Bears and Dolls reside comfortably within The Cookshop, owned by myself and my husband Chris. The store was opened as a natural progression to our Rayburn cooker business, but with my passion for teddies and dolls, I jumped at the chance to bag some space in the shop for myself. So a few select pieces are dotted around in The Cookshop – although most are carefully stored and make up the greater part of the business through online sales.
At the moment, sales of dolls are exceeding sales of bears, with Kidz ‘n’ Cats dolls currently being the most popular – followed closely by Sigikid, Zwergnase, Manhattan Toy and many more. Steiff bears and animals are always popular though, with the ‘My First Steiff’ bear in pink, blue, cream and beige being a real hit over the past year.
I am always on the look out for something new and different and I have lots of exciting new things planned over the coming months. Sign up for the newsletter to get all the latest news, new products, and even a competition or two being planned!
