City of Bears

Bearlin is a beary big city and as the name suggests is full of bears! In fact, it's symbol is a bear! Suffice to say, Sandy had a great deal of fun taking pictures of bears...
That is the official pose of the Berliner Bear.
  And then there are others...
 These two pictures show a less fierce variety! With crowns no less.
 And this is a  simple Steiff Bear...
Then you can get a bear instead of a rubber duckie... so that would be a rubber-bearrie??
 There are statues of bears everywhere. This one is hard to recognize because it's covered in pictures of people.
 This bear is a golden colour - sort of honey-coloured actually!
 And is helping to pull a chariot with possibly the Honey Goddess! Notice how the Honey Goddess has its arms raised up... there are lots and lots of statues like that...
 This one is yellow with funny paintings on it.
 Of course Sandy had to get into the picture as well!
These bears come in a variety of flavours...


You can even get them in miniature if you want...

These bears are beary strong!!! But then they have to be...
 Because they obviously serve as waiters during Oktoberfest (or something)...
This bear doesn't look very bear-ish... in fact, it looks a bit like Miss Piggy.... hmmm...

Sandy also found some other piggies... so he's including the pictures just for Sullivan!

And that is just a small sampling of the bears in Bearlin... Sandy could go hog-wild but he's had a whole blog post to himself on this topic... and now that's enough!

  3. I like this post a lot! G. used to collect bears and she regognized one of the bears, her brother gave itto heryears ago, when he their parents visited Berlin when the wall had just fallen! It's fun tosee they are still there :-)!
    Now most of the bears found a new home and she collects ladybugs, but Ithink that the Berlin bear still lices in her suicase filled with memories at the attic of our house. When the summerheat is gone she'll clean the attic perhaps we'll see it then, I'll try to remember to take a picture then!

  4. @Hammie - I'd love to see a pic of that bear!

    @Buttons - yes... I was tempted to buy one, but since I don't do baths, figured it wasn't very useful for me!
