They have their own shop so no point having the full range. They don't do any repairs at the factory, if people contact them they put them in touch with my shop as I also run a teddy bear hospital
They used to flood but they have built some defence walls along the river bank which means it is about 10 years since the factory was underwater. They have even done a bear in waders and a rainhat from the time they flooded in November 2000
