A bear in New York City

2012_12_05-0400Some while back Ollie and Britney bought two of our spectacular artist bears and then Britney left to go back to the US. We don’t need to know the details (hey, we just supply the bears in these situations) but it seems that long distance love is flourishing and Britney’s Edwardian motorist bear is living in England with Ollie, whilst Ollies Mod bear is living in the US keeping Britney company through the long dark days between the gloomy departure of her man and his next appearance at the arrivals gate waving and smiling.


So we were delighted to see on Ollies blog that on their recent trip to New York they took Mod bear along for the ride! Here he is at the Met checking out an Egyptian sculpture or two  – he may be born in ‘ Sarf Lond’n’ (that is South London with a local accent for all our international readers) but he really is quite a cultured bear. And there’s that bear again in Central Park and at the top you can see him snuggled in a rucksack reading a guide-book.


We have no hesitation in recommending Ollies blog, a one a day photo of his adventures (x) and Britney’s too (x) which celebrates happiness (and lots of dogs).

The photos are copyright OJ Proctor. Chasing after bears from TheBigForest and taking photos of their international travels would be all too exhausting for us, as well as a tad intrusive for our customers (“Hi! We are here! It’s time for the monthly photo of your bear……………”)

  1. Hey Guys, thanks for the mention! I’ve no doubt the Bears will have many more adventures in the future and with any luck, they’ll be reunited sooner rather than later..!
    Onwards and upwards for 2013!

    We’re a bit slow on the internet buzz these days… but this made us so happy to see! We thought Mod Bear might do better with the hipsters in Brooklyn, but unfortunately Ollie and I aren’t hip enough… we’re working on it! Hope you had a wonderful start to 2013!

    • Hey, if you are hip enough to give a home to bear (or two) from TheBigForest you’re hip enough for Brooklyn! Yes the start was wonderful – the trick will be to keeping it going from great to wonderful to superb. That’s what we are going to have to work on in 2013! Very best wishes from M+Bx
