Hugglets Teddy Bear Festivals and The UK Teddy Bear Guide have someone new at the helm!

A bright future for the projects is assured in the hands of WMM Publishing, the UK company of Sebastian Marquardt and Tom Wellhausen. Their German company WM Medien runs the world's largest teddy bear fair TEDDYBÄR TOTAL and the renowned GOLDEN GEORGE bear artist competition.

"Another of their projects is TEDDYS kreativ magazine so their publishing experience along with their track record in running major international fairs makes them a perfect fit," says Glenn Jackman of Hugglets. "We're confident to hand over the baton of the work we've built up over the past 30 years knowing they will do a brilliant job." Read more...

Congratulations to British bear artists
Jean and Bill Ashburner of Bear Bits who won
the George 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award.
