About

Marie Fredriksson Karvelas

Hi, My name is Marie Fredriksson-Söderman and I live with my sons on one of the beautiful islands in Lake Mälaren, in the close vicinity of Stockholm City, Sweden.

I have an academic past in arts and humanities and linguistics. After having been a full time mum for several years, I decided to start a new career and am now partly working as a digital designer, partly working in a shop in the central parts of Stockholm. I’m also into some other designing projects which I hope to be able to present further on.

My interest in teddy bears, dolls, and Sylvanian Families started when my children were small. Our whole life was filled with stories about bears and other animals. What was first meant to be some wonderful presents to the boys quite soon became my own deep interest, and a few years later I found myself having a huge private collection. Now many things have changed in my life and therefore I have decided to sell all these beloved furry – and some not so furry – friends. That is the reason to this website and online shop.

I hope you will like it and that you’ll find something you are interested in!
