This little Jellybean is my best friends beautiful daughter and this week she turns one. To mark the special occasion her lovely mummy ordered a pink bear with a crown just like the one that she had for her big brothers first birthday too.
The bear that I created is named June after her great grandmother.
June has a little flower crown and is the most beautiful pink, she will live on a high shelf until she can be snuggled because my bears are not suitable for children but make great keepsakes.
June is created from the most beautiful pink faux fur and fleece. Two tones of pink felt for the crown and the flowers. Her eyes are glass and her nose is embroidered from beautiful mutli coloured pink thread. This little pink bear is weighted and has joints in her arms, legs and neck!
She also has a little felt one to hold to mark the special birthday.
I hope the little princess has the very best birthday and I am extremely lucky to have an amazing best friend who is happy to support my little business and help my family.
I think that brother and sister bear look very cute side by side and I can’t wait to see what their forever family thinks later this week.
I really love teddies and bears. They make me smile! When Harrison Webbling was much smaller he took a big interest in Lego as many children do. It wasn’t long before I discovered that Lego create adorable little teddy bears, where had these been all of my life? I soon began collecting them and as I want this blog to be about the love of bears not just about the ones that I create, I thought it was about time I share my little plastic hug with you all. I hope that you enjoy it!
These ones are known as mascot bears.
Panda Suit Guy was from the Lego Movie Minifigure series.
Rainbow Suit Guy is a series 19 Minifigure.
Lego Brownbear Minifigure was a store exclusive.
I love the ones holding bears, it is amazing that they have made so many different tiny bears.
Flower Girl was an in store exclusive.
Spooky Girl was series 12.
Sleepy Head was Series 6.
NPOP Girl was a Ninjago Movie Minifigure.
Elf is a series 11.
Rocker was from a creator fairground set (60234)
There are some amazing bears that are from TV and movies.
Fozzy Bear from The Muppets Minifigure Series, Maggie Simpson from The Simpsons Minifigure series 1, Winnie the Pooh from the Ideas set (21326) and the tiny trio are Harris, Hamish and Hubert from the Brave set (41051). Lego’s own show Chima had some amazing bear characters, I only have the two but there are more available in tribes. The little blue bear was from my favourite of all Lego shows, Lego Elves (41183) which was the first set that I had just for me and made me fall in love with Lego.
Lego Vidiyo is not something that I have really explored but I think the bears Rasp-beary DJ (minifigure series 2) and Blue-beary DJ (43111) are incredible. I am also not overly familiar with the Lego Hidden Side series but the zombie teddy is amazing (70425).
Some bears are harder to get hold of, these ones were in blind bags and you got one bear in the set but there were four colours to collect. Luckily there are some amazing lego groups and the community is generally happy to help you source the ones you are missing through sales and swaps.
Lego also make bigger bears, I only have one, a beautiful Polar bear.
Sometimes you can even get the bears on the front of the Lego magazines, I got my baby brown bear and one of these panda bears from a magazine, the other two from Lego Friends sets (41412).
Of course Lego have been creating bears for a very long time and before the ones that we get today which fit in with the whole Lego system they had ones that are a bit different. From a series called Belville, I managed to find three, I would love more of the colours some day.
Well those are my lego minifigure bears to date, I am always hoping to find more and when I was searching for an extensive guide to lego bears I could not find one so I hope that this blog post is interesting to some people. I really hope they keep creating imaginative and creative bears because they never fail to put a smile on my face and I am sure that I can fit a few more on my shelf!
Quentin is a beautiful silky soft sage green bear with brown accents and decorated with a woolly cardigan and bobble hat to keep him warm.
Quentin is a really fluffy bear that is created from the softest, sage green plush faux fur.
He is a one of a kind bear who will never be replicated, He really is a collectors bear and is 1 of 1.
Quentin has been hand sewn with an embroidered nose. He has glass eyes. His little toes have been needle sculpted and he has 5 cotter pin joints. Quentin is weighted with steel shot so that he feels absolutely lovely to cuddle.
Quentin is an artist bear and is not suitable for children because he has not been CE tested. He is for adult collectors only. Quentin’s feet and ears have been created from fleece.
Made from all new materials.
Like all of my bears, Quentin has a little silver heart that has been engraved with an S, sewn onto him so that you can be assured he is a Moby and Puddle bear by Samantha Webb and will not be replicated.
Quentin will also come with a little portrait of himself because every bear has a tale to tell and when they leave me they are just starting their story.
Thank you so much for looking at my bear, if Quentin isn’t for you, there are many more in my shop just waiting for forever homes. Please feel free to ask any questions. UK postage is free.

I had three little bears who I made for Halloween, they were quite simple but came in little pumpkins. However they didn’t get adopted and I kept thinking how lovely each one was but that with just a simple black ribbon they looked a little plain. All of my bears have personalities and it was time to let each of theirs shine!
It is always a challenge to make clothes this tiny, I am not sure why but I find it much more difficult to sew the clothing small than the actual bears.
Marylin wanted a party dress and with the tiniest piece of fabric that is exactly what she got!
Kim let me know that she much prefers fairies and pixies to pumpkins and fake blood. One tiny dress and teeny fairy wings and Kim is looking much happier. I even gave her a new nose as her previous one seemed to blend in a little too much.
Lydia’s makeover was the hardest of them all, I have never made a baker boy hat before let alone one that is this tiny. Lydia told me that she much prefers comfy over pretty. Just like Kim, Lydia got a fresh new nose too which suits her much better.
I am delighted to say that after they had a makeover each and every one of them were adopted. I am so happy that they all have new homes. Starting a makeover can be scary because I love these bears and do not want to ruin them but if they have been waiting for a home for a while it often seems like maybe they aren’t quite ready to go to new homes.
I hope that you like the makeovers, or are you more of a Halloween fan?
I love each and every one of the bears that I create but I know that they are destined to go to their forever homes and so every time I finish a bear and it has had a photo shoot it goes away into storage to keep it as perfect as possible for its new home.
With each bear boxed up they rarely get to meet each other and I don’t see them together unless my wonderful collectors send me photos of their hugs (which I absolutely love to see).
When I finished Quentin and uploaded photos it was suggested that he looked like Noah’s brother so I wanted to photograph them together.
I think they definitely could be brothers, but they weren’t the only bears that fancied coming out of storage and so all of my bears came out for a photo day!
I had so much fun and I think the bears did too. Some of these bears have been waiting a while for a forever home but I know that when they do get adopted they will be in the best possible condition to travel to their new homes. Sadly they had to go back into storage for now but I am hopeful that it won’t be for too long.
I can’t wait to create more bears and seeing them all together makes me really happy.
For my birthday I was really lucky that my husband booked us a trip to Taunton with the plan to visit a bear shop that I had not been to before. Mr Webb is a wedding photographer and the month before he had been to Taunton for a wedding and stumbled across the bear shop, he saw a little bear in the window and said that he had to bring it home for me, that bear was Pantaloon by Charlie Bear.
As excited as he was to give me Pantaloon, the most wonderful surprise, he was equally excited to take me and the Webblings to visit the shop. World Of Bears is a bear shop spread over three floors of amazing displays. There are so many bears to see, the ground floor is completely Jellycat and Jellykitten which are adorable and the second floor is mostly more realistic animal plush but the first floor is where my heart almost burst with happiness.
Not only is the first floor a shop but it has some incredibly old bears on display, over 100 years old. They have bears that are tiny and those that are huge, from household names to artist bears and everything in between.
I was fascinated by the tiny bears, they had so much personality and flair, I would love to create some more miniature bears of my own soon.
I found it absolutely impossible to choose just one and since it was my birthday Mr Webb spoilt me rotten and we bought Cinnamon and Jollipops home with us. Of course Lilly and Harrison Webbling had to have a treat too and so we adopted a conker and a bunny to add to their ever growing collections of plush.
We had a fantastic time visiting World Of Bears and we will definitely be visiting again at some point, I have my eye on a few more adoptees!
Cedric is a beautiful polar bear who really loves warm hugs and he is a hugger! Cedric cuddles everyone, or he tries too, some people are a little afraid to cuddle a polar bear but he is so gentle there really is nothing to fear. Cedric loves to chat with penguins and watch the sunset from the top of the icebergs, he has a very calming influence especially on the younger penguins who are known to be a bit chaotic!
Victor would love to give you a warm hug, if you think that he might be the bear for you then please have a look at all of his details here …
Victor is only little, he has a lot to learn about the world but he is in no hurry to grow up. Victor is truly happy learning as he goes and taking each step one day at a time. Victor is never lonely because he takes Bear with him wherever he roams, Bear is a little clay bear that has been made from polymer clay, he has had Bear by his side since he was born.
Victor is a really sweet little bear who has found his perfect home x
