Nearly 30 years ago, North American Bear Company began as a creative business enterprise of a new mother, Barbara Isenberg, starting a family in New York City in the mid-1970s. Her desire to find a teddy bear with the nostalgic charm of an antique toy and a contemporary sense of whimsy for her own small son prompted the start of a toy company creating unique, high-quality plush bears that would appeal to both children and adults alike. In 1978, after perfecting a variety of sample bears, assembling a sales force and locating a small New York factory to produce bears, Barbara teamed up with her brother, Paul Levy, a Chicago-based lawyer and real estate developer, to form North American Bear Company, Inc.

Barbara continues as the company's Creative Director, running the New York Studio in the heart of Manhattan's toy district where she and the closely-knit design and production team develop each season's rich and varied collections.

Our year-long celebration of Muffy’s birthday continues through the holiday season with “Muffy Bûche de Noël�, another delightful confection by Barbara Isenberg of North American Bear. Always on the best-dressed list, this all new Muffy wears an elegant green satin gown with dark red sash and a matching holly-inspired ribbon in her hair. She holds a tiny highly detailed yule log cake made of hand stitched and hand painted felt.
