The Tinkering Turtle

Welcome to The Tinkering Turtle—imaginative toys by ECHO Museum and Vermont Teddy Bear. Burlington's toy store provides a unique selection of hands-on STEM toys, pretend play, games, puzzles, books, plush, and signature brands like Vermont Teddy Bear, Fat Brain, eeBoo, Melissa & Doug for families and all kids at heart. And only in Burlington—visit Vermont Teddy Bear's Design Studio and create your very own custom, one-of-a-kind classic. From selecting the fur color of each part to assembling the joints, placing the heart, and filling the stuffing, this extra loveable Teddy Bear is made for you by you. All proceeds go to supporting science and lake education at ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain.

Visitors can also shell-e-brate their bear-y special birthday at the toy store. We have unforgettable birthday packages where kids can make their very own stuffed friend to life, either by selecting a pre-made bear (or turtle!) or creating a one-of-a-kind bear in the Design Studio. For more information, or to book a party, please contact Sabiha Mujkic, Event Specialist, at or 802.864.1848 Ext. 102.
