How to Adopt a Hoo Bear

Read the Terms and Conditions of Sale first!
Happily, Helen's Hoo Bears are very popular, and consequently she does tend to have a full order book for a few months in advance. As a result,  there can be a delay in delivery of a couple of months. We try to keep the wait to a minimum, so please don't be put off -  they are worth the wait!!
