The Power of a Bear Hug
It’s not easy being apart from your loved ones, but there are still ways to treat them from a distance and let them know you’re thinking about them.
To help brighten up someone’s day, whether it’s a friend, family member or a partner, there is nothing more memorable than the power of a hug.
The teddy bear is a very traditional and timeless toy that was first produced in the early 1900s. It is often given as a keepsake, not only to young children, friends and companions as a memorable gift but also proving just as popular as an established memento to the elderly too.
Each and every one of our alpaca teddy bears is lovingly handmade from start to finish by talented Peruvian artisans, creating the softest, cuddliest teddy bears made from ethically sourced alpaca fur.
The alpaca fur teddy bears are EN71 toys safety directive certified and are purely natural colours: no dying, no bleaching. The Alpaca fur is also lanolin-free, so their teddies are hypoallergenic.
Children’s interaction with toys is similar to that of an elderly person, particularly those suffering from illnesses such as dementia. A teddy can provide comfort and companionship, and a friend to talk to. Children like to give their bears a name and, in their minds, creating a whole persona for them. This gives the teddy a depth of character and radiates love and compassion allowing a child imagination to develop when playing and caring for one. This type of play helps to stimulate and develop their imagination.
Alpaca Teddy source their fur from alpacas who have died naturally during the harsh Peruvian winters. Unfortunately, many young crias are overcome by the conditions and pass away. For the farmers, this often means a loss in revenue as their herd is now smaller. By buying this fur from the farmers, Alpaca Teddy can supplement their lost income and put this unfortunate passing to good use.
The teddies are then handmade by Peruvian artisans who live in remote villages whose skills have been passed down through the generations!
