Meet Jennie

Meet Jennie

Hi, my name is Jennie. I first started making bears a long time ago, and registered my business in 1992. I worked from home for nearly 10 years, exhibiting at lots of craft fairs and teaching bear making at various locations.

In April 2001, I first opened The Teddy Tree in Osborne Park, in a warehouse unit behind a computer shop – the most common comment from visitors was that it was a strange location for a teddy bear shop! My daughter came up with the name, The Teddy Tree – she said it was because bears could climb trees, but also it would be a good name for the business as it “could branch out” into other areas. What a wise child she was and is … In December 2008, I moved to the current location – 226 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn. 

Since then, The Teddy Tree has grown to now stock a huge range of commercial bears, patchwork fabrics and yarns – now the most common comment is that I need a bigger shop! 

Come visit The Teddy Tree, check out the ever expanding range of goodies on offer, have a chat, maybe even show off your latest creation!

Cheers, Jen
