Welcome to ‘Toggle Teddies’ and thank you for visiting my bears.

Toggle Teddies is located on the edge of the beautiful Peak District in Derbyshire UK.

My name is Wendi Walker and I started making bears in 2004.

I design and make each bear using the highest quality materials, which include Schulte or Hembold mohair, English glass eyes, and cotter pin joints. I also use polyester filling and steel beads to give extra weight.

Most of my bears are accessorised or dressed and I design and make all the clothes myself. I enjoy exploring new techniques and creating new designs and I think the more vintage style I am creating now is my favourite of all so far.

My bears have been featured in several bear magazines over the years and I am very proud of the few awards I have.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, I hope you enjoy looking at my creations.


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

My bears and dolls are not suitable for anyone under the age of 14 years.
