Happy 5th Birthday Charlie Bears!


Charlie and charlie bear Hello,

What a week and what a weekend – the weather was amazing and how exciting was Britain's Got Talent? I was convinced Chandy the dog would win but seeing Spelbound work their magic made them such worthy winners!

Do you still have your cuddly toy from when you were a child? I do, and her name is 'Panda!' I'll pop up a photo of her some time.

For some reason, at the age of 6 years or so, I attached a toy mouse to her little outfit…no idea why, but the mouse has stayed attached ever since!

This however, is a photo of Daniel from the Charlie Bear family. (Please excuse the slightly strange framing of the photo! It was taken with the webcam on my netbook as I've no idea where I've put my digital camera right now!)

Daniel is one of dozens of Charlie Bears we have in the Brook household. He is fab, with a beautiful expression and a somewhat mischievous look on his face! 

Charlie Bears celebrates its 5th birthday this year. HAPPY BIRTHDAY from QVC! We just love the range (hence the reason we have several dozen at home!) The quality is out of this world. These bundles of joy have personalities which are truly wonderful and magical.

We celebrate their 5th birthday with a 3 hour show this Sunday from midday. Charlie (Charlotte) and William will of course be with me. Not only do we have a special surprise and a hot pick, but we'll introduce you to around 18 new characters too!

I have worked with Charlie and William for a number of years. Their passion and devotion is evident. It's a wonderful story of how the range came about, which we'll relive on Sunday.

Take care, have a great week and do join me on Sunday with Charlie and William…why not watch the show with a Charlie Bear or two as well!

See you soon

Charlie x

Tune in on Sunday 13th June at 12pm for The Charlie Bears Collection 5th Birthday!

    I hope that you are both well, and not too tired after your special signing event last Sunday (6th June) whch I attended, it was amazing and so lovely to eventually meet you both. I absolutely adore my “special bear” which was bought for me by my wonderful, cherished boys William and Alexander.
    I cannot wait to see you on Sunday on your three hour special Birthday show, I just know that I am going to love every minute, so I will be their watching with all my bears around me, and we will be picking more little ones or more big ones to come and be part of the ALLEN FAMILY. How exciting!!!
    With much love and happiness to you both,

    Just adore Charlie Bears. I met Will and Charlie at a Bear Signing at my local Garden Centre almost 2 years ago this Christmas. 2 of my bears had one of their paws signed. I could’t really take along my collection even then, and it has now grown to 43 with Jooles just ordered. So a total to date of 44!!! I have always loved soft toys and bears especially since a small girl. more so than dolls and bear’s tea parties were often the order of the day. Couldn’t really do that now but love collecting them and Charlie is right, the bears choose you!! Like you Charlie I missed out on Nora last time, so am on waitlist and also Izzy on order for my goddaughter Isabelle for her 1st birthday in December.. Looking forward to the show and Happy Anniversary to Will and Charlie, great achievement.
    Lots of love Veronica

    Hi Charlie.
    Speaking of Charlie Bears (which are just great by the way) are we going to see a Charlie bares later this year in a QVC Presenters calendar in aid of breast Cancer Care? I suggested it last year and am dying to know if you’re going to do it. Please put me out of my misery1

    Hi Charlie, I adore the Charlie bears range and love the ‘Daniel’ bear you are holding in the picture. I have just searched for it on the site and it doesn’t appear to be in stock. Could you possibly tell me when I could get hold of it please? The name Daniel is very special to me, it is the name of my 6 year old son who sadly died last year.
    Many thanks in advance

    Hello to Joanne,
    I have just read the letter you have posted on Charlie Brooks blog, and I would like so much to help you in your search for a Daniel Charlie Bear, I hope that is OK, your story is so very very sad.
    Joanne I suggest you get in touch with the owners of Charlie Bears, the lovely Charlotte and William, I know for sure that they will be so happy to help you in your search.
    I too have emailed them asking them to find bears for me, so that is not a problem.
    Here is their email address:
    http://www.charliebears.com and their telephone number is 01566 777092.
    I really hope this message gets to you Joanne, which will lead you to finding your beautiful Daniel bear.
    Take care,
    With much love to you,
    Samantha Allen.

    Hi have been collecting charlie bears and have quite a few, on the 5th anniversary show on sunday i bought 4 more bears for my collection and would like to know why qvc cannot deliver these all at once, i dont mind paying postage on each my problem is because i work it makes it difficult to be in all the time, i ordered 4 bears on sunday, 1 came wednesday and 2 came today thursday and now i am waiting for the 4th to arrive which will more than likely be tomorrow friday when i am out all day, when you order them altogether it would be nice if they were sent together and arrived on the same day. Other than that i am totally delighted with my bears as always. thanks regards pauline
