Teddy Bear Urns – Comfort for Those Bereaved

Teddy Bear Urns – Comfort for Those Bereaved

Ask anyone who have been bereaved what they miss most about their loved ones who passed away and they will invariably answer that they miss holding their loved ones in their arms.  Hugging someone not only brings comfort but also conveys love.  This is probably the reason why people who have been bereaved opt to buy teddy bear cremation urns to contain their loved ones’ ashes rather than regular urns. What makes them choose teddy bear urns instead of regular cremation urns?  Teddy bears have always been associated with warmth and comfort.  With their loved ones’ remains contained in these stuffed toys, the ones left behind have the chance to continue holding them when they need comfort the most. What Are Teddy Bear Urns? When you look at teddy bear urns, you will see that they really are not any different from the regular teddy bear stuffed toys that you will see in any toy store.  They are made of cloth, are stuffed and padded to make them huggable, and are sewn with button eyes, ribbons and other accessories.  Some teddy bear urns also have detachable angel wings included in their design. What makes teddy bear urns different from the regular stuffed toy is the fact that teddy bear urns contain pockets inside them where an actual piece of memorial jewelry is held.  This small keepsake urn would contain a small portion of the departed person’s ashes.  Thus, when a bereaved person hugs these teddy bear urns that contain his or her loved ones’ ashes, he or she is literally hugging the loved one once more. Teddy Bear Urns Can Help with Coping When you have lost someone precious to you, you may often find yourself wishing for another chance to embrace that person and tell that person that you love him or her.  But because that person has already passed away, it is impossible to embrace him or her again. Teddy bear urns give you a chance to do this, even though you are only substituting the teddy bear for the real person.  Still, the fact that the ashes of the person you want to hug is inside the teddy bear, you are somehow assured of the presence of the person you are missing. Teddy bear urns are known to be especially comforting to small children who have just lost a parent or pet. Pet urns are generally large and house the cremated remains of the entire animal. But there are several options and you can split up the remains to be kept in a teddy bear urn or scattered in a favorite place.

HI Kim,

At this time, there are no teddy bears to hold an adult. What people do, is to just use a portion of the cremains in the bear and have the rest in a larger urn. Some hold quite a bit, but they are not large enough for an adult. And the reason that a person's cremains are about the size of a bag of sugar. So the urn would have to be very large to hold them all.

Thank you,
Susan Fraser

My beloved pet a shih Tzu about 12 lbs passed away a week ago. I love the Lil Boy bear but want to make sure if she will fit inside the bear, and if is possible to make the outfit in pink since she my little girl. The bag of her ashes is small and fits my palm. is an organza little bag. Can you please let me know if it will hold her ashes and if possible the customization of outfit and perhaps embroidery of her name on outfit Bella Meigui. I really appreciate it and would like a quote as well to order as soon as possible.

Hello Sean,

The safest way to get the bears clean would be to take them to your nearest dry cleaner. If you try hand-washing or placing the bears in a washing machine you may risk damaging the texture of the fur. Before taking the bears into the dry cleaners, I would suggest that you first remove the bag that contains the cremains, that way you can hold onto them safely while the bears are off at the cleaners.
