ABOUT

Custom Plush Innovations is a family owned company located in London, ON Canada and has long standing partnerships with reputable factories in China and freight forwarders in both Canada and the USA, since 2010.

In 2008, we started off by providing customized teddy bears to schools throughout Canada via the name, CanaBears, which was then owned and operated by Dale and Rhonda Snyder. Once 2010 rolled around, CanaBears evolved into Custom Plush Innovations and has grown into a successful corporation who focuses on high quality custom plush toys for both retail and promotional needs and services clients throughout Canada and the United States.

Our journey has been one of slow and steady growth over the last many years and our team feels fortunate to be working with a broad group of clients such as small businesses, big businesses, toy inventors, book authors, promotional companies, hospitals, schools, sports teams, colleges and universities.

Custom Plush Innovations has a customer-focused approach and prides itself on prompt communication and a high level of customer service and satisfaction. It's our goal to assist our clients with their custom plush ideas through diversified designing, structured mass production processes and flexible shipping outlets, all to aid our clients with their retail or promotional, custom plush goals!

Factory 1

We have the pleasure to be working with two creditable factories in China. “Factory 1” is located in Dongguan China, just north of Hong Kong and their 1500 square meter factory consists of around 60 - 80 senior plush toy workers, two production lines (60 machines) and four packing lines. Additionally, they have 2-4 senior toy designers with over 15 years of toy designing experience.  We use Factory 1 for those looking for premium quality custom plush.

Factory 2

“Factory 2” was established in 2001, and they occupy 6700 square meters of space, consisting of around 300 - 400 senior plush toy workers, 10 production lines (400 machines) and 5 packing lines. Additionally, they have 10-20 senior toy designers with over 10 years of toy designing experience.  They are a specialized manufacturer and exporter of plush toys, backpacks, cushions, pet plush toys and products for babies and gift items.  They are one of the largest manufacture in China, which has several subordinate branches .

Freight Forwarders

When it comes to air and ocean shipping, we tend to lean on tried and true companies like DHL, UPS, Fedex and ITN logistics. With a combined 100+ years in freight forwarding, there’s not freight forwarding need we can’t cover with one of these 4 companies. We of course use other smaller couriers when needed and are open to using your own freight forwarder, if that’s what you feel is best. 

Accounting

CanaBears Inc (Custom Plush Innovations) has been using Ark Accounting and Tax for close to 10 years now. Located in Kitchener, ON Canada, Ark Accounting provides a high level of customer service and prompt communication. Through inevitable ups and downs in a company’s growth, Ark Accounting has provided solid guidance and support.

Web Designing and Programming

We’ve used a few different web designers over the years, but have found none better than New Concept Design, located in London, ON Canada. The clear communication, guidance and professional service has been most helpful in creating a vibrant and informative website that we’re quite proud of.
