  Chatting with the bears about Kimi (see homepage)
by Kakapo2

Somehow you do not get around newer bears wherever you go in Berlin. I fell in love with the huge toy bears of the shop Teddy’s in Nikolaiviertel as I have a slightly childish character, and if you have had a look at my homepage you know that I own a travel bear named Kimi. They were hanging around in front of Nikolaikirche, and I joined them for a little chat about Kimi ;-) They were hugely amused and asked if they could visit Kimi in New Zealand. I would happily have said Yes but as each one of them would have needed his own seat in the airplane I could not afford to make promises. If you would want to sponsor the project please contact me… LOL

The other bears that are for sale in good souvenir shops are the so-called Buddy Bears, created by international artists in a huge charity action for tolerance. The shop Die Puppenstube next to Teddy’s had a great selection – but I did not buy any as my husband found them horrible, and I would not want him to live with an unloved item – as he already has to bear (bear – haha!) quite a lot of toy animals ;-)
