Well now, you won’t believe the amount of bears that have been arriving for the BIG MEETING of bears who are coming on holiday at the museum… I had no idea that so many bears, and so many types of bears existed! It’s a bit bear-wildering really.
The photo shows just a few of them who have just arrived, cramming their way onto the museum shelves – and Top Man Jeremy has told me that there are even more on their way! I can tell you a bit about a few of them…
I have met a bear called Aussie Bear, who has already arrived from a place called Horsham in Australia – Australia is on the other side of the world! I thought it must feel very strange for him here, because he must feel very upside-down so I tried to imagine that by standing on my hands for a while. Anyway, Aussie Bear has reassured me that he is always the right way up. He is very friendly indeed and I rather like his jacket.
There is a bear called Teddy who arrived this morning – he likes to wear his dressing gown. I haven’t had chance to talk to him properly yet, but I have been told that there is also a bear coming who likes to wear his pyjamas all the time! I think they must both be very tired bears to always be dressed for bed, but I’m rather looking forward to talking to them both.
And the other day, a really posh bear arrived called Harry. He told me he comes from a very expensive shop called ‘Harrods’ in London and wears a smart green ribbon around his neck. I wonder if he eats really posh sandwiches? I must ask him the next time I see him.
It is SO exciting to see so many bears at once – and I have just found out that when lots of bears get together it is called a Sleuth of Bears. I think we shall ALL be the bear-st of friends before long!
Until next time,
Toby the Bear
