What Customers Are Saying About The Toy Shoppe
I am excited to be able to add this Alice to my collection. Thanks so much to you and everyone at the Toy Shoppe for all you do for your collectors and for your friendly, helpful service.
I am delighted with my dolls! Even sweeter in person. Thank you so much for packing them so well. They arrived in perfect condition. This has been a very pleasant experience. Thanks, again!
I just wanted to say how pleased I was to receive "Basel" today. He is even more handsome than his picture. He was very well packed, and would have been quite comfortable in his huge box.
I just wanted to let you know that Grandpapa arrived safely right on schedule. I have a number of lovely bears, but take my word for it, he "outshines" them all. He is truly a gorgeous bear, and I feel lucky to have him. Thanks for the great service.
I just received the Steiff bears and the are wonderful! Polar Cub is the best! He is so heavy and cute - I love him! Max is adorable! Both will be very loved!
Thanks again for being such great people to buy from...
Thank you so much for the layaway which allowed me to own them, and many thanks for the stands as well. I have taken lots of photos of them, and can't wait to send them to my collector friends. I am just thrilled with them and wanted you to know.
I purchased a Steiff Phantom of the Opera bear a few weeks back. I just wanted to say "thank you" for the excellent service - I ordered the bear on the Thursday and he was with me in the UK by Tuesday morning! I couldn't believe how quickly he arrived considering he came from overseas. We never get that kind of service here in the UK! He was excellently packaged, in perfect condition and we are over the moon with him.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful customer service you provided during a recent purchase I made. The item was out of stock, however it was
swiftly ordered then shipped to the address I provided. Susi Piglet - who by the way is adorable - arrived safely and in plenty of time for the event for which she was
purchased. Her new owner was thrilled! I was also kindly contacted via a phone call about the status of my order. The Toy Shoppe made this buying experience such a
pleasure. Thank you again for a delightful shopping experience.
I just want to say how kind your staff is. I ordered the tiny dalmation doggie the other day and who ever I talked to was so nice. I just love to do business with people
like you. Thank you and I can't wait to get my little doggie.
I called and ordered an Annette Himstedt doll. Kathy was the person who took my order. She was most helpful and so pleasant to talk to.
Just wanted to let you know that, from now on, will do my shopping through The Toy Shoppe. Have tried several others but your store is far and away the very best. Thanks
again and will recommend you to everyone I know!
I just wanted to let you all know what a great bunch of people you have working for you. I dealt with Florence about my order and she was more than kind to me even
when I was a pest, and she got my order taken care of with such a friendly attitude - thank you, Florence. Then, the other day, I dealt with Kathy who was more than nice
to me about finding my tracking info. She was a joy to talk with. These are wonderful people who deserve a pat on the back. Thank you both for your friendly attitudes. It
makes things so much more enjoyable.
Once again, you steered me in the right direction - Maggie's doll is absolutely beautiful! I am so impressed with the quality of this doll and I didn't imagine it would
be this wonderful! As always, it is always a pleasure doing business with you. The time you take speaking with your customers is truly rare these days,
and very much appreciated. That is why I only purchase dolls from your store!

Just wanted to let you know that I have been ordering Steiff's for a number of years now from your store and I have never had a bad experience. Everyone I have ever dealt with from your staff is always extremely polite and professional. Just this past Monday one of your employees, Kathy, was so helpful that I thought it was high time that I let you know.
I wish you and your store continued success.
-Tara, New York
The level of service I received is indeed rare in today's world. I had a number of questions about your Max item recently, and your staff went out of their way to make
sure I received everything I needed to know. As a result, I bought the bear and will now be a life-long customer.
THANK YOU BARRIE!! I really love to do business with your company, so NICE and PROFESSIONAL and DEPENDABLE!!!
Just writing this note to let you know how happy I am with your service, your dolls, & your web-site. I will surely be buying from your store again - It's The
I received Ole' Brown Bear by Karen Meer today. He is a beautiful bear and the craftmanship is superb. He surely was well worth the wait. Thank you for giving me an
update on a possible delivery date. He arrived within the time frame that you estimated. I am extremely pleased with the great customer service. I look forward to doing
future business with The Toy Shoppe.
Collectors enjoy visiting The Toy Shoppe showroom:
Last week I had the great good fortune to be able to visit your store in person! Danny was there and was very friendly and turned on lights in the displays so I could see them better. Florence looked after me and was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped me pick out the perfect bear! I selected an exclusive 18" Richard Steiff bear. I live in Canada and so I visit your website a lot! It was really a treat to see you in person and be so well looked after. I just wanted to write you a little note to thank you for your hospitality and for making my trip a memorable one! I look forward to dealing with you again over the internet until my next trip!
Everyone has a great time at the annual Steiff breakfast:
Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality and wonderful gifts at the Steiff breakfast August 29. My daughter, Cathy, and I enjoyed every aspect of the event,
especially the demonstrations by the Steiff artists. All of the activities were entertaining and worthwhile, and the breakfast delicious, almost too much. We also enjoyed
the company of the other guests at our table, sharing their Steiff experiences. Thanks again for a great morning, and continued service.
-Cathy and Marcia
Thank you so much for the wonderful breakfast. My daughter, Sarah and I had a great time.
The presentation was so interesting and I truly enjoyed the speakers, especially Linda Mullins. She made a great impression and she seems like a wonderful person to get to
know! Thank you again and I am so looking forward to next year. My younger daughter has already informed me she wants to attend too! My regards to all the people at The
Toy Shoppe. I look forward to a long and happy relationship with you! I can't wait to get Zoe!
Annette Himstedt collectors reserve their dolls at The Toy Shoppe:
I am so looking forward to the arrival of my Gretchen. She can not arrive in the USA soon enough for me. Thank you to Mary Ann and Kathy for helping me on the phone. Take
Please accept my gratitude and sincere appreciation for all of your efforts in securing my Himstedt order this year!
I can only imagine the hours and patience you've invested in doing your best to meet the overwhelming response to the "AH" line this year. As a customer, a "Big Thank You," to you and your staff! It will long be remembered.
My granddaughter, Nikki, and I are ecstatic because we've ordered "Katiina". I wish I had a million dollars because half of it would be spent at The Toy Shoppe!
Special thanks to Florence, Janet, Danny and especially you, Barrie...
I received Linn today and she is more beautiful than her pictures. I received Ronja last week and she too is gorgeous. Thank you so very much for letting me purchase
Linn and Ronja. I really appreciate your letting me have some of the more hightly sought after Himstedt dolls and because of your generosity, I am a devoted customer.
I just want to say THANK YOU for letting me purchase Inga, Ronja, and Linn Himstedt for you!! These three dolls are the
most beautiful I've seen and I am in complete awe of them!! I just can't get over how wonderful they are!! And -- thanks for being so nice to me every time I contact
Collectors love your easy AMC payment plans:
Thank you all for making it possible for those of us on a budget to be able to purchase these beautiful dolls with your AMC plan. I couldn't be happier.
Best to you all.
Thanks so much for allowing payment plans. It's wonderful having that option for us people who can't afford buying these bears up front. I just had to let you know how
great it is to have this option. Your staff are great and helpful.
Collectors enjoy The Toy Shoppe catalogs:
I just received my new Toy Shoppe catalog in the mail yesterday, and I just wanted to tell you it truly is a work of art. I have never seen a nicer catalog than yours.
Just got the new catalog today, well done and beautifully photographed. I always love seeing the merchandise photographed in a different way in order to get some perspective as to size, color, and personality.
I want to thank you so much for sending your wonderful catalogue to me here in England. It really is superb and since so few books are available on contemperary doll
and bear art your catalogues will be invaluable to collectors in years to come too. For me they are the benchmark of the best work available to collectors.
Collectors are greatful to find quality toys for children:
I wanted to write and let you know how very pleased I was with the Maximilian that I purchased from The Toy Shoppe for my grandson Blaine for Christmas. Thank you for
making my grandson's Christmas very, very special with a wonderful bear created exclusively for The Toy Shoppe. We have purchased many wonderful Steiff animals for Blaine
from The Toy Shoppe over the last few years. Thank you for providing such quality toys for children and "grown-up" children.
Collectors are thrilled with our Toy Shoppe exclusives:
I wanted you to know that I received my Appolonia and, just like her counterpart, Maximillian, she is FABULOUS!!!! Without a doubt, these are my two favorite Steiff bears
of all time. A big thank you once again to Maryanne for all her kindness and assistance.
I have received my "Max" Steiff bear. I am absolutely CRAZY about him! He is just the best looking guy with a beautiful smile. Thanks so much for making this wonderful
exclusive bear available for us collectors. Thanks also for the friendliness of your staff.
I am thrilled with Appolonia Steiff and your wonderful mail order service. I have been lucky enough to get hold of her sweetheart, Maximilian who in turn is truly
amazing. I have been told that there is to be other family members to join them. I will want to have these, so if plans are going ahead for these 2 bears to have children
please contact me as I would love to have first edition numbers. You have made me very happy. Carry on the good work.

What Artists Are Saying About The Toy Shoppe
The Toy Shoppe celebrates 30 years:
The Toy Shoppe has probably the finest range of the best dolls and bears anywhere. Their attention to seeking out the finest artists and manufacturers is second to none
and then the unique way they promote and encourage artists' creations makes working with them a pleasure. Encouragement and positive feedback is so important to any artist
as quite often they rarely meet the final customer or collector themselves. We feel this anniversary is extra special being our 25th as well. Through many of those years
we have worked together and enjoyed lots of happy ties in each others company. Many congratulations from Lynn and Michael Roche.
-Lynn Roche, England
Pauline Middleton appreciates the way her work is presented:
The Toy Shoppe has been working with us for years now and we could not be more pleased with the professional way our work is handled. Barrie & Danny set standards in
customer service and advertising that could not be surpassed. On top of that, we must say, that the way they look after we, the artists, is nothing short of amazing. The
amount of consultation is terrific, and we feel that we sure have been the lucky ones to have had them working with us. Sure they demand a lot, but when we see how they
present our work, and the extra effort that they put in, it makes the extra work in preparing information for them so important, and worthwhile. You only need to look at
their advertising and web site to see the incredible standards they set for themselves, and their wonderful staff. Barrie, Danny, and the staff at "The Toy Shoppe", you
are the VERY BEST!
-Pauline Middleton & Bob Brown, Australia
