Hamish Bear lived in a teddy bear shop. It looked like a normal shop, with all the teddies arranged in rows on the shelves. But really it was a magical shop. When it closed at night, Hamish and his friends went through a secret door into their very own house - the House of Teddies.

Although all the bears knew there was one special child for each teddy, Hamish didn't want a special child.He liked to do his own thing, and he especially liked to ride his scooter. But one day ...





Hamish was off to the Great Teddy Bear Picnic with his small friend Finn. He waved goodbye to his special little girl. "It's her birthday today," he told Finn. "I want to take a terrific present back to her."

But all Finn wants to do is play with Hamish. Finn bounces and flips and leaps ... until disaster strikes! Hamsih is left without a present. When Finn goes missing, Hamish frantically searches for him, unaware that at that very moment Finn is plotting the perfect solution...
