About

The Bear Factory was founded in 2000 just before the “Build Your Own Plush” movement became the new way many children chose to have a more interactive way in selecting their stuffed animals. This new craze started a new division in the plush industry that continues to grow with thousands of retailers incorporating the “Build Your Own” into their stores worldwide.
Since 2001 The Bear Factory has been the #1 plush supplier worldwide serving thousands of customers with our own “unstuffed plush animals” and custom plush lines that started in 2003. We were then able to move in this new custom direction after opening of our manufacturing factory in China, which employs over 800 employees. By incorporating a state of the art sample room we were able to create new styles in our line, along with expanding into the new up and coming custom design direction.

From start to finish, we are committed to making your experience fun and easy. We offer one of the largest unstuffed plush lines in the industry with our two sizes 8” and 16”of unstuffed plush that has always been considered the best in the world. Our plush continues to be the industry standard because they are made with the highest quality fabrics and most unique designs along with the best pricing in the business. We offer a large assortment of plush animals that include, bears, dogs, cats, wildlife, sea life, farm, fantasy and seasonal items, along with an extensive clothing line with over 200 styles to choose from. The Bear Factory also holds the U.S. Patent for the locking zipper closure on the plush animal. This closure is the most effective closure on the market today making it very easy for the retailer to be confident that all of the polyfill fiber stays inside.
Along with our main line The Bear Factory also provides a full “Custom Design” department that services our customers with design and development of any custom style either in plush or clothing. We can customize from an extensive selection of our existing designs or create a new item that is developed to your specifications.
