I think these Happy Turtles might have been part of a summer theme at Starbucks one year. I can’t really remember for sure. Anyway, one tag says 2006, and one tag says 2007, so I’m not sure which year they are from. They are really cute at any rate. They are probably four inches tall, and the red one has flowers, eyelashes, and antennae while the green one has more traditional turtle decorations. I think the red one might be some kind of turtle dressed as a lady bug. There may have been other accessories with these turtles, but I’m not certain.
This mega-cute bear is the 2007 Summer Girl Bearista. She is the 62nd edition of the Bearistas, and she’s wearing a pink polo shirt, plaid shorts, a blue sweater tied around her waist, and pink flip flops. She also has a plaid bow to match! The shirt and the flip flops also have little flowers on them. There is a matching boy bear that I’ll post later. I still have to find him. LOL.
This Bearista is sooooo beautiful! She is the Japanese Kimono Bearista Girl and she is the 100th in the Bearista series. She is only sold in Asia, so check out eBay if you want one of these beautiful bears (if you are outside Asia)! She’s got on cotton underclothes with eyelet trim and a purple, pink and green kimono with aqua accents. In the back is a nice big, lovely bow! She also has a flower on her ear and one on the front of the kimono. She has eyelashes for that extra-girly flare! She is so lovely and it is nice to see a Japanese-inspired bear too!
