How it works

Bearington is an award-winning teddy bear company that has accumulated its accolades due to its high-quality craftsmanship. Bearington takes pride in its design of their teddy bears. Their bears are not just stuffed, plush toys for your child to play with, they are more than that. Bearington’s teddy bears have become collector’s items, decorations, and gifts for adults as much as they are gifts for children. With its soft fur, floppy limbs, and ability to stand or sit, the Bearington Bandit Teddy Bear is another part of the vast and well-crafted line of Bearington products that brings joy and happiness to the lives of every person who gets to own one of these bears.

 

Design

Design

On the outside, the Bearington Bandit Teddy Bear may just seem like an ordinary plush toy that belongs on your bed or on your shelf, but on the inside, there is more. The Bearington design puts small beads in the pelvis and the hands and feet of the Bandit Bear. With the extra weight of the beads giving the bear balance and stability, you can then sit the bear in any position you want. Its legs are floppy enough that you can cross the arms or the legs or you can put the arms in any position that you want and they will rest either at the bear’s side or in its lap. What the extra weight of the beads also does is allow you to stand the bear on all fours as well giving you more posing options as well as the ability to lay him flat.

The Bearington Bandit Bear is made entirely of soft, black fur with the exception of its snout that is brown. The bear measures eighteen inches long and can fit virtually anywhere whether it’s on a shelf or in a backpack or just sitting on a chair, the color blends into any design concept and it makes any room come alive with childhood memories and the unshakeable feeling of wanting to cuddle the bear into pieces.
Cleaning the Bear

Cleaning the Bear

One of the best features of the Bearington Bandit Bear is the ease of cleaning and maintaining the stuffed animal. The Bearington Bear is 100% machine washable, so all you have to do is read the care instructions and place the bear in the washing machine by itself and you can have a completely cleaned bear. For smaller needs, you can take a damp cloth and spot clean the bear as well. The soft fur is designed to withstand water, so there is never the fear of the material coming apart or the fur getting damaged by the detergent or the water. The bear will probably not need to be cleaned very often when it does, you have a couple of options on how to get the bear as clean as possible.
Award Winning Stuffed Animal

Award Winning Stuffed Animal

The Bearington Teddy Bear has been the recipient of several toy awards for its craftsmanship and high-quality design. Over the years, the Bearington teddy bear has been either nominated for or won awards over 100 times. The Bearington has received multiple TOBY Public Choice Awards, CIB Collectors Choice Awards, Canadian Collectible of the Year Award, Golden Teddy Awards, TOBY Industry Choice Awards, and NALED Plush of the Year Nominations. All of these nods have been due to Bearington’s ability to not only bring happiness to the person who owns the bear but also to the unique design that creates an unbreakable bond between the owner and the bear. The awards and nominations are just another testament to the bear’s high level of toy making.
Decorating

Decorating

Bearington has not only been known to bring smiles to the faces of children who own the stuffed animal, but it also brings a certain kind of joy to the adults who have another use for the bear other than cuddling. Many parents and especially grandparents, use Bearington Bears as the centerpiece to decorating a child’s room. Many parents and grandparents will create bedrooms or guest rooms for their child with a certain aesthetic or design that the Bearington Bears fit into with perfection.

Every child’s room needs a teddy bear and because of Bearington Bear’s design that allows the bear to be set in different positions, adults can place the bear on shelves, on beds, on bookshelves, in chairs, on couches, or on tables and the Bearington bear gives the room the feel of nostalgia and youth that creates a warm atmosphere for whoever walks into the room. The Bearington Teddy Bear becomes the focal point around which the room is set and decorated.
Nurturing

Nurturing

Like all stuffed animals and toys, children tend to personify certain items and make them so human-like that even adults forget the toy is not real. Bearington Bandit Teddy Bear has that effect on children. Many children will develop their skills at nurturing by taking care of their bear as if it were truly alive. The cute face design of the bear with its semi-sad eyes and semi-sad mouth expression makes children and adults want to love the bear as best as they can in order to make the bear happy. For small children, this is a first step towards having a pet and showing your child how to give their pet the love and support it needs. This is also a good way to get a child used to have a younger sibling by having the bear be a nurturing tool.

Children will drag the bear wherever they go and make sure it is fed and make sure it has all that it needs to be happy. Nurturing of this kind allows for children to be able to express positive emotions about caring and understanding. The opening up of these positive emotions helps a child to become more well rounded and in touch with their emotions. When a child is more emotionally stable, they will, in turn, become more social and have a healthier social life. Kids will be able to then nurture their own relationships outside of the family unit with their friends and classmates. The Bearington Bandit Bear is a great place to start your child on their journey of self-love and loving others.
Sleep Time

Sleep Time

Many children find it difficult to fall asleep at night. Since birth, parents are always trying to get their children on a normal sleep schedule, but many children find it hard to unwind and fall asleep. Many children are afraid of the dark and afraid of what they can’t see so sleep does not necessarily come easy to them. What a child sometimes needs outside of a nightlight or outside of Mom or Dad being in the room with them is to have a trusted companion that makes them feel safe and makes them feel protected.

The Bearington Bandit Teddy Bear can do just that. Your child will form a bond with the bear and the bear will begin to represent for your child the part of them that is courageous and comfortable. Your child will sleep easier at night knowing they have someone in bed with them to make sure they are always safe.

By buying a Bearington Bandit Teddy Bear, you may be giving your child some security and peace of mind at night that will enable them to fall asleep and eventually get on to a normal sleep schedule that will not only benefit your child’s health as they will always be fully rested, but is great for you as well as you will not only have a healthy child but you will also sleep better at night knowing your child feels safe and knowing that your child won’t be laying in bed awake.
