These are the adorable 2017 Holiday Bearistas. They boy is the 135th edition, and the girl is the 136th edition of the Bearistas. The girl bear is wearing a white and gold dress with a jacket of green and red that has a silver rabbit on it. The boy bear has a tweed jacket with green tie and green and white plaid shirt. He has grey pants. His jacket has what I guess is a rabbit on it, although it looks more like a random blob. LOL. Both bears have STARBUCKS 2017 patches on their feet. (I mistakenly thought these were the year of the rabbit bearistas, but I think they are just the holiday ones for 2017).
This is the Valentine Girl that was sold in Asia in 2011. She is the 98th edition in the Bearista series. She is very similar to the North America Valentine Girl, except that she has a reddish-pink muffler on her hand and she has a different hat with more reddish-pink fuzzy fabric. She’s also wearing the pink Valentine sweater that is on the North America Valentine girl, and the skirt is similar with a brown background and light pink hearts. Super cute as always!

These three bears came out at the same time. The black sheep and the white sheep are 31st in the series and Bo-Peep Bearista is the 30th edition in the series. All of the bearistas are from Spring 2004. The sheep bearistas have super super fuzzy fur and have little bells around their necks so Bo-Peep can keep track of them! Bo Peep is wearing a blue gingham dress with white eyelet underclothes and she has a staff for the sheep and is wearing a straw hat with blue ribbons and a yellow flower. Bo Peep is also quite fluffy, but not as fluffy as the sheep of course! A very cute collection from 2004! Click to enlarge. 🙂
You wouldn’t believe how soft this Bearista is! He is wearing a bunny suit and the ears are stripey and colorful to match his rainbow ribbon. He has a pink nose and a year patch on his left foot. This is the 75th Edition of the Bearista Bears from Spring 2008. I know they have done a lot of rabbits for Easter and stuff, but I think they are still adorable! Click the photo to enlarge. 🙂
This is the 10th edition of the Bearista series from 1999! This little bear is starting to take on the look of the later bearistas, but he still has a unique early look. The bearista is dressed up as a little lamb and his suit is very fuzzy! His pink bow matches his inner ears and tail. He doesn’t have any markings on his feet, but his tag indicates the year and the number in the series. He is just adorable and fun to love! Click to enlarge. 🙂
This is one of the oldest Bearistas that I own! Although it doesn’t say the year on the tag, according to BearistaTales.com, this bunny Bearista is from 1998 and is the third Bearista in the series! He is a really different style of bear than the recent bears. He has slightly shaggy fur and is a bit thinner and taller than most of the bearistas. His apron says “Starbucks Bearista Bunny.” Very adorable with his floppy ears! Click the photo to enlarge. 🙂
Another adorable Valentine’s Day Bearista this year! She is the 102nd Edition in the Bearista series. She is holding a letter in her hand and it says “True Love,” “To: the one I love” and “From: a secret admirer.” I have included a close up of the letter so you can see it better. 🙂 Her outfit this year is brown, pink and red. She is wearing brown slipper shoes that match her brown skirt that has pink hearts on it. Her shirt is red and the sweater is pink with red hearts on the edge. She’s also got a pink and brown bow and super-cute eyelashes! 🙂
Here is a pic of the 2011 Year of the Rabbit Bearista without me in the pic! 🙂 He is the 99th edition in the Bearista Series and as far as I know he is only sold in Asia. I ordered mine from an eBay seller out of Asia. He’s got the 2011 banner flag and very beautiful designs. He has a patch on his left foot that indicates the year and that he is a Starbucks bear. The bunny hood does pull down and off his head if you want to change up his look a little bit. I just love these Chinese New Year bears! They are great!!!
Here I have the whole Gingerbread Bearista family! There is the boy Gingerbear (78th edition of the Bearista series) and the girl Gingerbear (79th edition of the Bearista series) and they are together with the small magnet boy and girl bearistas. The boys have red buttons and green ties with the gingerbread suit and the girls have orange ribbons with green buttons and the girl gingerbread suits. As you probably know, gingerbread is a traditional holiday treat and these bears are certainly a treat as well! I am fairly certain that the Gingerbread series only came out in Asia. I got my bears from eBay. I am not 100% certain about that though. At any rate, they are charming and beautiful! Click the photos to enlarge. 🙂
