On the same property there is a retail store where they sell teddy bears and stuffed animals. Shoppers can come in anytime and have a teddy bear or stuffed animal made right away. Aside from the retail operation Stuffington Bear Factory has commercial clients who special order from them because they especially want products that are totally made in the USA from materials manufactured in the USA.
Six days per week, Monday through Saturday at 1 p.m the folks at Stuffington Bear Factory allow people to tour the facility for free. The tour lasts about 20 minutes. Cameras are allowed. During the drop-in tour you'll learn about the history of the teddy bear, and actually visit the manufacturing floor and see how the stuffed animals are created. At the end of the tour (or even if you didn't take a tour) you can purchase a ready-made stuffed animal at Stuffington, or you can stuff your own. Outfits and accessories are also available for purchase at the store. We highly encourage you to drop in and visit them for a unique experience you won't forget.
A little bear told me: Stuffington Bear Factory is one of the last remaining stuffed animal factories in the country and it is located right here in the Valley of the Sun. Located at 2302 East Thomas Road Phoenix, Arizona 85016, 602-225-9513 http://stuffingtonbear.com/
