Hair Bow Coloring
A girl bear wears a bow in her hair. The color will be arranged properly when your Bear Bunch is created in our workshop. As a general practice, if your Bear Bunch has bunch of girls, the bow colors will vary from red, pink, purple, magenta to blue. You can request a specific color in the Comment box at checkout.
Free Personalizing: Names and Saying
- Mouse over the added bear to add an optional name.
- Type an optional saying/message on the chair front.
- The names and saying will be written nicely ON the chair by an experienced artist.
- We always use the upper case in the dotted crafty font we developed in the last 24 years
Accessories: Add Life to Your Creation
- Add For a spot where you have added a bear, mouse over the bear, click on "Add Accessory" and then a popup "Shop Accessory by Category" will be shown. Click an accessory to choose it, and upon chosen, the thumbnail will be displayed by the bear. For a spot where you want an accessory but NOT a bear, you will need to add a fake bear first: click on the spot, find the fake bear that is named "NO-Bear" located in the end and click it to choose. Now you can mouse over the No-Bear and add an accessory.
- Size Displayed An added accessory is displayed in its thumbnail on the spot. Its actual size is much larger. Any accessory allowed to choose shall nicely fit the bear/spot.
- Arrange Our artist will place your accessories by the bears as you specified, and arrange the whole space properly. A football may be held, for example, but a hat would be worn while a dog will be seated, depending on your selection and the space.
- Change Mouse over the added accessory to edit it.
- Special request? Put in Comment box at checkout.
Final Item vs Preview
You can preview your creation while you are building. The preview, however, can not represent your final item completely and clearly due to the complicated customization and personalization. Actually, your final item will be much nicer than the preview, very close to the sample:
- Personalization of Names and Saying
Final Item: Hand written in our Bearish Crafty Dots as shown in the sample picture.
Preview: Computerized standard font.
Final Item: Always written on the chair as the sample shows.
Preview: Some letters of a long name such as Christopher may be displayed out of the chair or cover the adjacent name.
- Letter Case
Final Item: Written in uppercase ONLY.
Preview: Your keyboard controls. It doesn't matter since we'll use the capital letters only.
- Bow Colors A girl bear wears a bow in her hair.
Final Item: The color will be arranged properly when your Bear Bunch is created in our workshop. As a general practice, if your Bear Bunch has bunch of girls, the bow colors will vary from red, pink, purple, magenta to blue. You can request for specific colors in the Comment box at checkout.
Preview: The color is preset.
- Random Accents
Our bears and chairs are hand painted with the brown accents in the random shapes at the random spots. Evey piece is unique. NO two pieces are alike. These accents will be slightly different between the previewed and final.
Your bears will be arranged and centered on the chair when your gift is created by an experienced artist in our workshop.
- Example: What if you add a bear to Pos. B1 and no bear to B2?
Final item: The bear will be placed between Pos B1 and B2.
Preview: The bear is displayed at Pos. B1.
- Example: What if you added 4 bears to the back where 7 spots are offered?
Final item: The 4 bears will spread evenly on the back.
Preview: The 4 bears will be displayed on the spots you specified.
- Bear Orientation
Final item: The main bear(s) will be "surrounded" with other bears, just as shown in the sample. The bears over the back, for example, will be looking at the front directly while the bears sitting aside will be tilting to the main bear(s)nicely.
Preview: Some bears may face to an imperfect direction. This has NO effect on your order.
Final Item: Accessory size varies but matches the bear very nicely.
Preview: An added accessory is displayed in its thumbnail on the spot, since otherwise if the accessory is fully display, it will cover the bear and you won't review your creation properly.
Our artist will place your accessories by the bears as you specified, and arrange the whole space properly.
Final Item: A football is held; A hat is worn. A dog is seated...
Preview: Any accessory is a thumbnail displayed on the bear/spot you specified, no difference in the placement. This has NO effect on your order.
Pricing and Cost Control
- You pay only for the necessities (chair, bears and accessories) you selected to build your bunch. You pay nothing for the personalizing.
- You will see the real time cost while building a bear bunch. You can easily change the total cost by managing your necessities: mouse over the added bears and edit your selection, at any time before you hit add-to-cart for checkout.
- Tip 1 The cost for the smaller bears range from $2.99 to $5.99 each. The difference is significant.
- Tip 2 The accessories are beary impressive but pricey. They are optional.
- Tip 3 A bear bunch for a core family could be as little as $25 while a four-generation bear bunch can be over $100. You can build with the four generations or leave out the middle generations.
- Tip 4 A Bear Bunch is for the whole family, with everyone personalized and honored. So you may not need to buy each family a holiday gift when you have a Bear Bunch.
Your bears, accessories, names and saying will be centered on the chair when your gift is created in our workshop. The whole thing will be arranged beary nicely by an experienced artist. Special request? Put in the Comment box at checkout.
