Having a Bear Making Party

Run your own bear party at home. We sell everything you need to run a successful 'Stuff Your Own Bear' parties at home.

Splodge Teddy Parties is a family business owned and have been selling bears since 2010 and before then we were running our own bear parties.  So if you need any help then please get in touch.

How can we help you run your own successful bear party?

  • We have a large selection of bear making kits in two sizes from different suppliers to provide you with the best range of bears possible.
  • You can buy kits as a set party packs or buy them individually and we will send them as a party pack.
  • Our colour-in bags make a great additional party activity and as well as a bag to take the bear home in.
  • Choose to add on t-shirts and colouring pens for children to personalise their bears.

If you are unsure about which products to choose then visit our Contact Us page.

Which bear size should I choose?

We have two different sizes of bear - all no-sew kits. 8" and 15" bears. The bear measurements are from head to heel of the bears. 8" are better suited to younger children as they are easier to stuff and take less time. The 15" bears are the same size as ones which you can buy from a well-known shop in shopping centres around the country and their clothes are compatiable with ours. We have lots of clothes to go with each size bear.

Should I buy one of your bear party packs?

We have constructed bear party packs to make it easier to purchase the bears. The party packs come with either a ready made selection or they are a Create Your Own pack with a  'Customer Bear Choice' box so you can type in the bears/animals you want.

You can also select different party options including

  • t-shirt options,
  • invitations
  • partyware
  • fabric pens/crayons
If there isn't a party pack for the number of bears that you require then you can order both a party pack and individual bears and they will all arrive as one pack. You can select themed party packs such as zoo animals or pets as well.


If you order too many bears for your party we offer a return service.

How long should I order before my party?

Order as long as possible before your party is the best advice. If you are unsure of numbers we do offer a refund for unused bears if you find you have ordered too many bears for your party.

How to Stuff you Bear

Get children to open up their bags and their stuffing but do not start yet! Make sure all the stuffing pouch is pulled out at the back of the bears are open and that the stuffing pouch has been pulled outside of the bear. Explain to the children that they must not close up the bear until the end.

Start stuffing the bear by taking a handful of stuffing then fluff it by pulling it apart with your hands. Stuff the legs first. Children may need help pushing the stuffing down to the end.

Then stuff the arms, head (if not already stuffed) and finally the body. The hardest parts are the arms and legs and children may need help with these.

Ask children not to do up the bear yet but wait till everyone has finished. Get the children to take their wishing heart, close their eyes and make a wish then place the star inside their bear.

They may now do up the catch put the bear and push in the stuffing pocket and seal up the Velcro on the back.

Don't forget to remove the tabs on the velcro before sealing your bear!

Your bear is complete and now you can fill out the birth certificates and colour in the bag.

Teddy Bear Party Extras

You can add extra activities to your party to give children even more fun activities to do and the party will last even longer. You can choose one of the following or all of the following: t-shirt decorating, teddy games, teddy jewellery making and teddy outfits. T-shirt Decorating This activity is extremely popular with children as they love designing and decorating a t-shirt for their new bear. We have t-shirts in pink and white for children to decorate and fabric pens to write on the t-shirt with.

15" t-shirts are from £2 each

Games

Children love Pass The Parcel. Why not buy a bear outfit from our shop as the prize in the middle of the parcel.

Bear Jewellery

A box of beads makes a fun activity for children. They can have a lot of fun making necklaces, bracelets, ear rings for their bears.

Sound Boxes and Scent Chips

Why not bring your bear to life by inserting a sound box into your bear.

For the little 8" bears these are put into the bear's tummy. Put round plenty of stuffing to stop it feeling hard.

For a larger bear - put the sound box into one or your bear's paws. We have song soundboxes which play a tune when pressed. We have noises such as snoring or kissing.

Or you can give your bear a personal message with one of our recordable voice boxes.

Why not give your bears a lovely aroma with one of our scent chips.

Plenty to choose from.
