Stuffington Bear Factory is a toy manufacturer of bears and stuffed animals located in Phoenix, Arizona, creating unique stuffed animals and bears since 1959. Stuffington Bear Factory is one of the few stuffed animal manufacturers with production based in the United States, so all toys are “made in the USA.”
TOURS of the facility are offered daily and are FREE, Monday through Saturday, and are great fun for the kids and the inner child in adults!
The facility is 16,000-square feet and is a complete “cut and sew” production house. Any finished fabric item from stuffed animals to clothing is created at the factory from scratch. All products are made by hand with nearly no automatic production machines. Amazingly, the factory is capable of generating 5,000 units in one week.
On the same property, visitors enjoy a retail store where they sell a wide selection of bears and stuffed animals. Shoppers can come in anytime and have a teddy bear or stuffed animal made, too. They host tours, birthday parties and special events. During these events, visitors learn all about teddy bears and are able to stuff, comb, bathe and dress up their very own teddy bear. What fun!
