Cymru is one of the names for the country of Wales, which is part of Great Britain or the United Kingdom so Cymru Ted has a meaning of “Welsh Bears” or “Bears from Wales.”
The original Cymru Ted first saw the light of day as a mascot for an online bulletin board service called ‘Cymru Tel’ which flourished in the late 80’s. Although the online database is sadly now gone, it can be said that the vision of Cymru Tel lives on.
From the home page, you will find a wonderful world of teddy bears and there are now museums of bears that were created in previous years and which have been adopted. There is a Directory of teddy bear people in or near to Wales, in Europe, The Americas and others from around the world.
We have a Skill Centre which offers some basic teddy bear making advice, a Teddy Bear History area where you can find all sorts of interesting facts about the teddy bear world, Welsh Lovespoons and also a Web Design Centre where we not only offer our design services but also lots of advice on creating your very own web site on the internet.
Finally... please do contact us if you have any queries about any of our bears. You will find a postbox on almost every page and if you do get totally lost - we have created a site map to help you find your page.
