Pauline was born an asthmatic and during her childhood had to be protected from household dust where possible as this was conducive to the illness.  As a result of this and the fact that most cuddly toys at that time could not be washed, her mother was forced to make the decision to ban her from having a Teddy Bear.  Although she still suffers from asthma, being older it is easier to take steps to reduce the chance of an attack so such extreme measures are no longer necessary.  Consequently her husband purchased a Teddy Bear for her from Asquiths as a valentine present in 1990 and thus started her collection.  In an attempt to get an unusual present for her birthday in 1996 her husband took her to Oakley Fabrics to choose a pattern and fabric to make a bear to add to her collection.  This bear was named Kit as this was how he arrived and Pauline enjoyed making him to such an extent that she decided to make them for sale.

Please note that Pauline's bears are not toys and are not suitable for children under the age of 14 years.

In 2017 Pauline was approached by Hamleys of Regent Street, London to supply them with her Steampunk bears & exclusive to Hamleys her Steampunk pandas.
