Unique Japanese Style Bears

Im very excited to tell you about my new series of bears!They will be called Out Of The Box Bears or OTB Bears. Each will all be Japanese style bears that I have spent many hours designing over the last few months.  Im excited about this new design because they are alot different then the more traditional bears I make. After 7+ years of bear making, I was ready for a much needed change and a new adventure. I will still continue to make my traditional bears, with an occasional Japanese style bear.
