Expert Opinion on your Teddy Bear


If all else fails, you can always call on the experts.

If you want a valuation on your bear, and this is probably the best way, is to take the teddy bear along to one of the major auctioneers who host Teddy Bear sales such as Christie’s and Sotheby's.

Please note that you may have to pay a ‘valuation fee’ unless you enter the bear in a sale with them afterwards.

Local Dealers

You could take them to any local Teddy Bear dealer or Teddy Bear shop who might be able to help identify them.

Be aware with this method of valuing a teddy bear, that their valuations can (and usually will) reflect the price they are willing to pay for the bear so that they can make a profit by selling it on.
