BIGGER BEARS

If you are in need of a custom weighted comfort bear that weighs more than 12 lbs, please contact us at info@phoenixbears.org for more information on how to order a bigger bear. While our 17″ Phoenix Bears have a max weight of 12 lbs, we have resources for bigger bears that can be weighted up to 20 lbs. You will be responsible for buying your base bear from our Amazon List for Bigger Base Bears & having it sent directly to us. The cost is $25 for modifying / weighting the bear and adding a blanket to it’s hand. Shipping depends on size & weight of the bear and where it is being shipped to and will be determined after the bear is finished and packed for shipment. Shipping Fees will be due before bear can be shipped out. We can only ship within the USA at this time.

Additional Fees apply if you want to add on Angel Wings ($10), Embroidery ($10-$20), and/or a printed Memorial Certificate ($10).
