Brand New! Alice's Bear Shop by Charlie Bears

Beacon's Glow is excited to announce that they will be carrying the newly introduced "Alice's Bear Shop" bears and characters by Charlie Bears.  Shipping is expected to begin in October of this year.

A bit of background information regarding this adorable new line found on the Alice's Bear Shop website:

"They say that things are happenstance or serendipity and the re-opening of Alice's Bear Shop is one of those.  Rikey Austin first brought us the stories and characters of Alice's Bear Shop over 20 years ago. At that time, they were hugely popular both as cuddly companions and story books to read.  Now in 2018, with Charlie Bears as the new design and production partners, Alice's Bear Shop is making its welcome return.
Who could forget Woodroffe, the dignified old bear who was so proud of his growl or Cobby the gorgeous bear that went for a swim and ended up soggy but safe in Alice's Bear Shop?
Rikey has been busy updating the storybook illustrations whilst working with Charlie and the team on the re-creation of each of the original 12 characters.  Rikey is still the creative force behind the range and all the characters are borne out of her illustrations and stories.  Charlie Bears have brought their experience of manufacturing, quality, safety, and ethics to the story and in October this year, we will see the doors to Alice's Bear Shop open once more!"
