When Carte Blanche asked me to give my thoughts on the Dress up Tatty Teddy. I was thrilled and knew just the little girl who could help me out with this review. My Niece Lydia was so excited when she turned up at my house to be greeted with this very special Dress up Tatty Teddy.
Lydia is a huge Me to you & Tatty Teddy fan, but she had never seen one quite as special as this little cutie.
Dress up Tatty Teddy Review
The Dress up Tatty Teddy comes with a plush heart and heart-shaped note card to add your own special personal message.
After you have written your own personal message you can put the note into a secret pocket on the side of the dress up Tatty teddy. This can be quite be easily opened by the velcro fastening on the pocket itself.
This is a great idea for a gift, a get well soon or birthday present. Being able to personalise the dress up Tatty teddy helps add a little personal touch. When Lydia and myself come across the heart-shaped note card. We wrote a little note for my niece to say with her new Tatty teddy bears name on it! That’s what she wanted to do with it.
What comes with the Dress up Tatty Teddy?
The Tatty Teddy also comes with an owner’s certificate. The certificate is another quite lovely touch and would only be better if you didn’t have to hand write the owner’s name on. Maybe this is something that will change in the future, albeit this isn’t a problem.
Dress up Tatty Teddy is designed to be played with. I know normally Tatty Teddies can be cuddled but you can’t clothe them which is shame because that would encourage more interaction in my opinion.
The Dress up Tatty Teddy is definitely made for cuddling as it is super soft.
Where to get Tatty Teddy clothing from?
Carte Blanche have made a full range of clothing and accessories for the Dress up Tatty Teddy. You can get the following items for the bear!
- Bag & Mobile Phone

I have found quite a few of these types of accessories at CharacterWise online who are official stockist of the Dress Up Tatty Teddy merchandise.
Lydia and I had great fun dressing up Tatty Teddy who we named our Tabitha. She was placed in a sparkly pink Party Dress, which Lydia thought was fantastic and looked like a bridesmaid Dress.
On the evening before my niece was due to go home she placed a dressing gown on her dress up Tatty Teddy Tabitha.
Her mother has actually asked me for the slippers to go with the dressing gown. The slippers she wants actually has an embroidered head of tatty teddy on the front.
All in all you can see why the Dress up Tatty Teddy actually won the Talking Tots Toys awards in 2012.
