On its opening in 2001, I was fortunate enough to have six of my teddy bears selected for display in the beautiful Cheju Teddy Bear Museum in Korea.
The museum (pictured at right) is of a unique architectural design, situated on an ocean viewing hill area on a famous resort island.
Its landmark glass cone is as high as a 9 storey building (27 metres), and the museum comprises 4,000 square metres, with 600 square metres of exhibits. Its 13,000 square metres of land also houses sculpture gardens, a cafe, restaurant and museum shop.
Nearly 4 million visitors from around the word see over 1,000 items on display in the museum...including mine!
Here are the bears that I was fortunate enough to have selected for this prestigious honour.
