Merrythought Dating and Identifying begun! June 07 2014

We need some more new bears from you out there please!

I'm pleased to say the links page is overflowing!

I was delighted that Chad Valley may want to use some of our photos for a forthcoming publication.

We are also now in a "List of Museums" list! and a Museum of Museums too!

Google Analytics tells us we have people looking at us from 49 countries, quite extraordinary! Bears really are international creatures aren't they?

 

This week we have some lovely photos from Olga, a lady and her collection of 80 bears in Moscow. 

Also:-

New bear Tinker, a very early button Chad

Mr Bertie, a huge Smiles Chad bear

Dylan a typical 1930's large Chad

Ryan a good example of a Chiltern

Two Polar bears standing on all fours who may be Dean's.

I'm happy now that our Chad Valley section is accurate and am moving on to the Merrythought one. More new bears please!!!

Dates to remember:-

The 2014 CORNWALL Summer BEAR FAIR at Lostwithiel on Sunday 22nd June.

This very well attended Fair – now in it’s 11th year! - appeals to enthusiasts from all over the Westcountry, the UK and well beyond.
As you may already know the Fair now endorses and supports two very worthwhile Charities – Cornwall Hospice Care and Animals Asia, with its campaign to rescue bears from captivity and in distress throughout the world.
