QT Bear is the perfect huggable keepsake or gift for someone special that will be cherished for many years. Whether it be in memory of a precious baby, welcoming a new addition to the family, celebrating a special occassion or just because someone needs a hug, the perfect shirt can be made just for you. The shirt can be customised especially for you with your own artwork or choosing from our gallery of images.

QT Bear is a high quality soft toy conforming to Australian Safety Standards. It measures 25cm at a sitting height and is dressed in a white cotton t-shirt. Each t-shirt is printed in Australia. 

How to order

2.  Send an email to to request an image from our gallery or send your own image, text or artwork (please see guidelines for images below).

3. A confirmation email will be sent to you. Your personalised bear will take 2-4 weeks to arrive.

Artwork Guidelines

The print size on the shirt is 7cm x 7cm. The image will be cropped to a square format if not already provided as such.

  • Use bright colours and try and fill as much of the paper as possible.
  • Use textas, colour pencils or crayons.
  • If you are creating the artwork at home you should use an A4 sheet of paper, which is not glossy as this will not scan properly and will impact on the final product.
  • The artwork can be designed in landscape or portrait orientation.
  • If you have chosen to use a photo you should use one which is clear and focused in on the subject matter.
  • A photo with a lot of small detail may not be easily seen.


QT Bear is supplied by the wonderful fundraising company Dress My Bear. Sands Queensland thanks them for all their help and support in making this fundraiser possible.
