Singapore Teddy and Friends Show 2018

16 November – 18 November 2018


Teddies are iconic objects which touch the hearts of both children and adults. Almost everyone can associate easily with teddy bears as they hark back to fond childhood memories. However, with the impact of modern technology, the sight of children playing with such toys is fast disappearing in the midst of today’s busy society.

This event aims to promote an appreciation for toy making and build a connection between the human touch and the art of Teddy Bear making. The show features International Teddy Bear and Doll Artists from Australia, Estonia, Germany, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, USA, including some of our locally bred talents. You can also expect to find bear making supplies with a wide selection of Fabrics, Joints and Eyes for making your own Teddy Bears.

There are several Teddy Bear or Doll Making workshops for both adults and children on Friday, 16 November 2018.
