"Many thanks for the prompt delivery of Little Pig. After what had been a trek around Leicester city centre on the hunt for Little Pig, my daughter was sad to think she'd never find him. Finding your little bear shop on the internet brought hope to her heart knowing you'd got him in stock. When we received delivery of a box within 48 hours, my daughter was one happy girlie when she opened it to find him so well packed in there! Thank you so much for your efficient service from ordering, delivery, updates on the order and packaging, it was all first class!"

Joanne - Leicester ( Jellycat Little Pig

"I just wanted to drop you a message to thank you for the Charlie Bear Higgledy you sent me a few weeks ago. He is beautiful and far nicer than the picture showed. I love his colours. I really appreciate the way you take such lovely care with the packaging of your customers orders too. Unwrapping the box became a special event in itself and I will definitely be buying more of my Bears from you in the future, just to receive them in this way. Many thanks for the care you put into your orders."

Nicola - Somerset ( Charlie Bears Higgledy

Just a quick email to say thank you for the safe delivery of the 2023 Charlie Year Bear and the long-awaited Lantern. Lantern was well worth the wait. He is absolutely gorgeous. The 2023 Year bear is a departure from previous year bears but is so pretty in pink. A special thank you to Leanne who took the time to check that she had understood my email when pre ordering my bears for the year. I realise it was a very busy time for you all and to take the time to double check my requirements once again shows why Corfe Bears are so amazing. I look forward to receiving my other pre orders in due course, and no doubt will visit the shop for a few extras along the way.

My second Hayley and Gina arrived Friday, they are sooo gorgeous. The two Hayley's sit proudly either side of a bookshelf like two cuddly bookends. Gina sits on my bed with various other Charlies, she's fitted right in with the rest of my hug. I'm so pleased. Thanks to you all, especially Leanne who never tires of my requests for photos of the actual Charlie's that I want to see in the flesh ...so to speak. A big thanks to Stace for sending them so promptly and so well packaged they look so snug in their travelling box. Last but not least thanks to Hayley who had my favourite bear named after her.

The nesting bunny has just arrived. She is more adorable than expected and I am sure my little granddaughter will love her. Thank you. Even something so small and not 'fragile' was packed with such care. Thank you Stace.

We’re gearing up for Christmas here at Corfe Bears, so make sure you are prepared too by getting any of your orders in, well in time for the latest posting dates.

This year the latest posting dates are:

Monday 18th December - Royal Mail 48

This is our standard service that comes free with any order over £15. To allow us enough time to get your gorgeous gifts on their way to you, please make sure your order is placed by the end of Sunday 17th December.

Wednesday 20th December - Royal Mail 24

This service costs just 99p to add to any order and is well worth the upgrade if you’re in a last minute dash to get that present you forgot!

Sadly we cannot guarantee that your order will arrive in time if you miss the latest posting dates. We will continue to dispatch orders up to 23rd December but remember their arrival time will likely be affected due to the increased amount of post in the system and the non-working days over Christmas.
