Like the Vermont Shakespeare Festival, the Vermont Teddy Bear Company has contributed to the rich cultural landscape of the region. Since its humble beginnings in the 1980’s as an open-air market stall in Burlington, the Vermont Teddy Bear Company has grown to become one of the largest producers of teddy bears in the world! Each year the Vermont Teddy Bear Company handcrafts nearly 500,000 teddy bears that get delivered to stuffed animal lovers all over the United States and Canada.
The Vermont Teddy Bear Company has brought smiles and joy to all who visit their factory and take home a furry friend, which is why we are so pleased to announce Bearius Caesar, the latest addition to our Shakespearian cast! The Vermont Teddy Bear Company crafted this famous Roman Bear exclusively for us; there isn’t another bear like him in all the world! And the best part about him is that he could be going home with you!
