Wallace Berrie bought the Applause company,
a division of Knickerbocker toys, in 1982.
The whole business was later renamed Applause inc.
The Avanti line first introduced by Wallace Berrie was continued
by applause in a smaller number of colors and sizes.
The Avanti line was designed by Riccardo Chiavetta of Jocky Rome.
Wallace Berrie acquired the world marketing rights in 1982.
Extremely cuddly the bears are reminiscent of those made by Aux Nations,
where Chiavetta had worked previously.

For Many Years We Supply Vintage, Antiques
Rare Collectibles & One of a Kind Irreplaceable Items
We never alter, repair or replace any of the features
on our bears & animals as we like to leave them
in the original condition for our collectors
We feel replacing them with anything from a different era
makes them no longer original or authentic
All of our bears are heavily researched for hours by our staff
with a massive library of Bear Collectors Identification Guides & Books
Bear magazines and Internet research
Everything we can find that pertains to that particular bear we then type in the description
We do our utmost to correctly identify and price all of our items accordingly.
Professional photographers work to take as many pictures as possible
to help show the buyer what they are purchasing.
The bears are then carefully packaged and put into storage
where they are not removed until purchased and shipped.
