About Hanna's Teddy Hospital and how it all started.....


My company is named after my 3rd generation Great Grandmother Hannah Bruce from Scotland. I have had my hospital and have been creating my own line of teddy bears since 1997.  I started repairing and restoring bears and stuffed animals and have been a dedicated teddy doctor.  I specialize in dog mauling’s, major restorations and refurrings. 

I have worked with all mohair and plush bears ranging from age 1 to over 100 years old.  I have had the honor of working with Steiff, Zoty, Merrythought, Hermann, Gund, Ideal, and many more that have been 60+ years old, just to name a few.  I also specialized in reconstruction for bears or stuffed animals that have been "loved" by a new puppy or older dog.  I clean, restitch, reconstruct, restore, and repaire all bears and all types of stuffed animals from bunnies to pelicans!  I think my Great Grandmother Hannah Bruce would be proud of my dedicating my life in order to help bring smiles to faces of children and adults young and old! Thank you for taking the time to look at my website and I hope to help your special friend feel better soon!
