My Hard Rock Bear Collection ... ...

I've got a total of about 150 variety of Hard Rock Bears from all over the world, namely : Nagoya, Hong Kong, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Pattaya, New York, London, Paris, Piraeus, Bangkok, Bali, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Las Vegas, LA, Melbourne, Tokyo, Toronto, Chicago, Tel Aviv, Surfers Paradise, Pharaoh and etc... ...

I actually purchased 3 glass cabinets just to house all the collectibles together in a corner of my living room :)



The bear below is the most expensive one from Egypt (Pharaoh). It comes in a nice box, an Egyptian bear an the mummy wrap. Really cool isn't it? :):)


The 4 collectibles below are my favourite cos I purchased them personally on my oversea trip (LOL !!)
They are the Dolphin & Bear (from Pattaya), Kangaroo & X'mas series bear (from Melbourne)

Can you see Cherish (pink sweater) & Love above (blue scarf). The latter is a giveaway from Marzie's contest which I hope to win. Cant wait for the results to be out !! :):)

This is a miracle... ...FIRST Commentator

Thanks Jackie for being my first commentator here !! Congratulations !!

69 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

kegler747 said...

Wow, I'm impressed with the vastness of those teddies :) Are Amos and Zac allowed to touch those?

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : They are getting a bit dusty over the years cos the cabinets are not fully enclosed. They did not request to want to touch them though *surprised*. However, they like to bang on the glass :(

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious said...

wow, jan!! that's an amazing collection u have there!! and three glass cabinets!! gosh, that's alot of bears!! :) it's like a part of the toy dept in yr living room. :)

Farah Deen said...

the cutest is surely the mummy bear- all cutely wrapped up. it's a wonderful hobby Janice, and it will give you a lot of money too if you decide to sell them off- but DON'T!!!

Now, if you won Marzie's contest, I wouldn't be jealous of you, because I know how much you love your bears. :)
