So many even I can't believe it.
Luzianne, Flower Maiden, Bride & Groom
(12"), Kaitlin's Cow, Penelope, Garden
Party, Holly Maiden, Royal Tapestry, Rare
Gold, Rare Gold's little sister (missing her
tag so I don't know her real name).... and
so many more. Hopefully I can do a
complete photo session soon and add their
photos and biographies.
I got my first Bearly People bear; Lady Caroline, from Disneyland in California, way back in 1990 and Sugar Magnolia from DisneyWorld in Florida in 1991, shortly after.
Since then, I have collected a whole load more, but I believe the Bearly People Company is now out of business as there have been no new designs since 1995 and the bears are now collectors items on EBay (which is where I've purchased most of mine).
