Dean's Bears

Dean's had been around for almost 200 years at this time, producing books of all types and were well known for producing Debrett's Peerage.   Two of the directors of the company followed the American example at the close of the nineteenth century and started a firm in London's east end, Dean and Green, producing printed cotton sheets of dolls and animals.   In 1902, they experimented with the production of a child's book printed on calico, a simple idea but one which meant that the book could be washed.   The success of this experiment, even though the books cost 6/- each (about £25 in today's currency) persuaded some of the directors of Dean & Son, to form a new company specifically for the production of printed cotton books and toys and so it was that on 8th August, 1903, Dean's Rag Book came into existence with an address of 160a Fleet Street, London.

By the time the current owners of Dean's, Neil and Barbara Miller acquired the company in 1988, toy manufacture had been taken over  by the Far East and from the eary 90s, Dean's concentrated on making collectable bears in the UK.   The Dean's Collectors Club was formed in 1994 to provide a focal point for all collectors interested in Dean's products.  Today, there are still well over 2000 members of the club, many of whom joined in its inaugural year and who eagerly look forward to receiving the new club bear with each year's subscription.  Dean's relocated to the wilds of Herefordshire in 2005 from where the business is now run.
