friends - the multi bears

When one bear just isn’t enough, you get multi-bears! Just like Bernie and Benji here.

Maybe you’ve experienced a time when you’ve spotted a particular bear. He’s just what you were looking for… But, oh dear, he has close friends he just can’t bear to be parted from. This, to us, results in the acceptance of  multi-bears into the fold. Luckily, most of the bears in this category are of the smaller variety, which is handy due to space considerations. However, they are all welcome and fit in just fine - even if they do insist on sitting together…

This pair of mini bears joined us in 2007 to mark the 60th anniversary of Singapore Airlines. Boy, is that a long time ago now.

These guitar guys are, as you can probably guess, from the Hardrock Cafe in Honolulu, Hawaii. They joined us in 2007 and spend much of their time debating whether they should be listed here or under ‘Brand Bears’.

This tiny trio also joined us in 2007. From the US, they now sport Hawaiian necklaces and are very friendly with Tab, the tiny Tabasco bottle shown in the photo.
