Back in 1992 wool prices had crashed, the district was in the grip of a drought and the community of Tambo were challenged to come up with new industry to sustain the economy of their town. A brain storming session during a workshop developed the idea that Tambo could assist the wool industry, encourage tourists and create employment by making unique teddy bears from wool pelts and stuff them with wool.
The impact and enthusiasm of the public was overwhelming and the business grew. Tambo Teddies take pride of place in homes all over the world our famous teddy bears have made our little town of Tambo the ‘outback Teddy capital of Australia’.
Our bears come in two styles and two sizes; the Basil and the Toby, and in a variety of colours including a multi coloured patchwork.
We are the makers of the original flat teddy, the Bickie Bear who is soft and cuddly and ideal for newborns.
Our products are all handmade in Australia, using quality Australian natural sheepskin.
