We create whimsical, cuddly creatures for the young-at-heart.

We created the first Sugar Plum Bears in the early 1980s to meld our love of design and creativity, with a desire to work from a home studio while raising our children. It was an endeavor that brought joy and smiles to many.

After a few years, the Studio went into a long period of hibernation….until last month, when my (now grown) son asked for a Sugar Plum Bear, leading to a reawakening of sorts. With the events of 2020 making social interactions more difficult, loneliness is a huge concern. The making of that one bear for my son sparked a dormant joy in design creativity. It seems natural that we would feel compelled to resume making Sugar Plum Bears and Bunnies to put more smiles and hugs in the world.
