Original Mon Bears


Contact the Artist

Hello! Welcome to the Original Mon Bears stall. All bears shown here have been designed and hand crafted by myself, Monique van Maanen.

I am an Australian bear artist who is passionate about bear making. I have been designing my own bears since early 2016.

Original Mon Bears are easily recognised by their soulful expressions and large colourful eyes. I'm not happy with a bear until it looks alive, in fact my collectors have told me they sometimes find themselves having a chat to their Original Mon Bears- half expecting them to talk back!

Only the best quality materials (mohair and alpaca furs, German and English glass eyes) are used when creating an Original Mon Bear, and all my bears are stuffed with natural wool and stainless steel shot.

If you have any questions about the available bears or payments etc during the show, please reach out to me via email: original.mon.bears@gmail.com or message me via my facebook page (link at top of page).
