Our kids loved this factory tour. Especially the 6 year old. We got to see how they make teddy bears and how Vermont Teddy Bear Factory got started. It was interesting. Kids were free, adults were $4 each. The bears ... or making of the bears are a bit pricey tho. Unfortunately, you can't walk in there and walk out... More

Was very disappointed. We traveled 3hrs to go and attended the tour. We saw no where on there Web page that there were specific times for the tour. We got there 20 minutes to late. Won't be returning.

My wife and I went here as part of a second wedding anniversary weekend trip and found it fun. Our tour guide Pam was "loads of fun" as she regaled us with her plethora of bear puns. We end up purchasing one of patchwork bears.

This was an awesome teddy bear factory for any age to enjoy! The tour goes from the beginning to the end of making a bear and being able to personaliz your bear however you want. The tour guide was extremely interesting and made it fun. I bought a bear for my grandson and had him decorated in his favorite fireman... More

My wife went to the factory to check it out. I had grown up in the area but had never gone to the factory. We went and decided not to do the tour but wandered around the store and looked at all the bears. There are hundreds of different kinds there. The problem is that they were all different sizes...

My husband actually talked me into stopping here on our way from Middlebury to Burlington. The tour was about 30 minutes and a lot of fun. We don't have little girls or granddaughters but thoroughly enjoyed it. We actually bought a bear with a golf outfit to set out in our home in Augusta. It was a very interesting tour.

On a whim, we took a brief detour to VTC. I have to see, I was wildly underwhelmed. I hoped to find a nice bear for my daughter, who is turning 10. All the bears were kind of goofy looking, and none were appealing to cuddle. Prices were high, quality didn't seem great - I was quite surprised. Any "Build... More

Probably shouldn't have been shocked, but had to stop and visit and glad we did for visuals....but even charging for tour??...ridiculous...take a peak in clothing store for some steals to get your sanity back and take some free pictures for a good laugh later.
