Who designs and makes the bears?
All images of the products on this site are for illustrative purposes only. Every effort has been made to display the colors accurately. Each computer displays the colors differently and may not reflect the true color. Your product may vary slightly from the images you see.
Where can I purchase the bears?
Warm Heart Bears, animals and dolls can be purchased from this website and online bear shows. We can also be found on BearPile. All bears and animals listed are available for purchase on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To make a purchase, please use the add to cart button. You will receive email confirmation of your order. The bear will ship within two days, except on Sunday’s.
Because all bears and animals are made individually and are sold as one-of-a-kind, we cannot create replicas. It seems unfair to the person who adopted a Warm Heart Bear or animal as an individual piece, to replicate that piece for someone else. We have received many requests to replicate bears previously made, but it is quite difficult to do so and we do not make multiples. The nature of making one-of-a-kind pieces, is that they are different and unique from each other, and have their own character.
I rarely take custom orders, however, you are welcome to contact me to discuss further. email Carolyn.
What forms of payment do you accept?

Orders will only be posted to the address shown on the PayPal account at the time of purchase.
Do you accept lay-away?
To place a lay-away order I recommend using the PayPal credit option so the bear ships immediately. Place the item in your cart and proceed to PayPal. Choose the PayPal Credit option there. This option allows for monthly payments up to six months.
Can I pre-order bears and animals?
If you see a photograph of a new bear on social media and are interested in adopting, please email me your request. If you would like advance notice of my online shows and news, please subscribe to our mailing list
