Squish Bears

These dinky bears are the perfect, grabbable size for your little cub!


Have you met our latest squeeze? These squish bears are short, light and handsome, and while they loves a cuddle they definitely won’t hog your little one’s cot. They’re mainly a simple make but the gusset upgrades them to tricky, so pay close attention on Round 6.
