ABOUT Tambo Teddies creates an innovative range of quality Australian made natural woollen products. The iconic bear is instantly recognisable; stitched with love each bear is tenderly created from 100% woollen sheepskin, truly an Australian hand-made product. These very appealing, friendly bears come in different styles from the soft and cuddly "bickie" bear for the very littlies to the fully dressed stockman with his hat, stock whip and swag. Tambo Teddies is an Outback icon, a ‘cottage industry’ business that has literally put the little town of Tambo on the map.
In the workshop you can meet your new lifelong companion, over 38,000 bears have been made here in Tambo and yours will have its own unique number and individuality. Be prepared to fall in love.
