We’re launching a competition to find a superhero teddy bear, and we need your help designing it. The winning teddy will be sold in John Lewis and Waitrose shops later this year, with 100% of the profits going to the NHS


In honour of our incredible carers at the NHS, we need designs for superhero-themed bears – don’t feel like you have to stick to the traditional brown bear – we want to see all kinds of super teddies.

Share your superhero teddy bear design with us by 5pm on 8 May 2020. An adult over the age of 18 should submit a photo of your design in one of the following two ways:
