Basic Brown Bear Factory
A trip to San Francisco's do-it-yourself Teddy Bear factory has been a memorable experience for adults and children since 1976. A tour through the Cannery shop shows how bears are made and lets you get involved. Choose your favorite bear from dozens of options and then stuff it yourself. Both group and drop-in tours are available and the cost is $12. Reservations are required for groups. The shop features bears of all sizes and price ranges, outfits and accessories.
The employees are wonderful! I have arranged school field trips to Basic Brown Bears for over 15 years. The students learn a little American history, watch how the teddy bear was designed, and manufactured and even get to participate. My students love the experience and talk about it for years.
