Bear Packaging as they Travel
Bears travel to you in either a plain cardboard box or one with the Giant Teddy logo printed on the outside (shipments vary as to type of box used.) Please note, our company name “Giant Teddy” will still appear on the shipping label even on plain cardboard boxes.
Bears 50in and over are shipped in a vacuum-sealed bag inside the cardboard box. Instructions on how to remove your bear safely from the vacuum-sealed bag are included with every shipment. Unwrap carefully and watch your bear grow to life-size!
