Hello Happy Bear St. Shopper! It's 2017 and that's a beautiful thing!

Even though Bear St. closed as an active going-concern as of 30 September 2016, we're still here for a while, so Emergency Orders are being processed daily (that being, OMG, I forgot/ didn't know about the sale and I NEED Snoodles, especially at 52% off = EMERGENCY = we get it).

Orders processed at this time must be done through PayPal's Invoicing system. We will no longer be processing payments directly.

Contact us should you wish to submit an Emergency Order.

The caveats are thus:
Gift packaging is not available (gift cards ok) // Bear Aways/Layaways are not available // Canadian and US shipping only // All sales are final and as-is // Discount is not retroactive // Inventory is limited

Measurement Information

How does GUND measure their animals?
All of the animals on Bear St. are measured in both inches and centimeters, and this measurement may be found on their individual pages. Also found on each items page are graphical representations indicating how the animal was measured. GUND measures all of the animals for us and this is always at the largest dimension.

This image indicates that the associated item has been measured in a 'standing' position. One such example of this method of measurement is Schlepp. Schlepp is said to be 18" tall. When measuring Schlepp, you must consider the length of his legs, so holding him in a standing position, measure from the top of his ears to the bottom of his feet (this basis of measurement is most common among GUND's items).
This image indicates that the associated item has been measured in a 'sitting' position. One such example of this method of measurement is Simon. Simon is said to be 11" tall. When measuring Simon, simply measure the distance from his bum to the tops of his ears.
This image indicates that the associated item has been measured in a 'lying' or lengthwise position. One such example of this method of measurement is Raffle. Raffle is said to be 16" long. When measuring Raffle, simply measure the distance from his nose to his tush. This method holds true for animals that are stand on all fours, are designed to lie down, or cannot be predictably measured sitting.

Dogs and Cats!: For consistency, our dogs and cats have all been measured in a prone position with their feet extended behind them (as per GUND). One of the Muttsy dogs is 12" long. You must measure from the tip of his nose, or the front of his paws (whichever extends further) to the back of his feet behind him. Good examples of this method are Muttsy, Bootsie, and Buford. For items such as these, we have included additional 'Nose to Tush' measurements. This denotes measurements from the tip of his nose to his tush (NOT including feet or tail), this is body length only.
