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).
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 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. 🙂
This Bearista is ready to go and dressed up in a bunny suit with pink paws, a pink belly, a pink nose and pink ears! He has on a multi-colored pastel ribbon and is adorned with the Starbucks year coin on the bottom of his left foot. This is the 26th edition of the Bearista series. His ear tag also has a poem that says “I’m a cuddly, fuzzy bunny who loves to play when it’s sunny. I’ll bring fun your way if you’ll take me home to stay!” They used to put poems on all of the tags, but, unfortunately, they quit doing that. 😦 This bunny bear has super soft fur that is sort of like a chenille fabric. You can’t see it in the pic, but he also has a fuzzy white tail! Super! Click to enlarge. 🙂
Occasionally Starbucks puts out a plushie that isn’t a bear, but is still super cute. In 2006 they put out this bunny that holds a carrot sack. In the sack was a lemon sugar cookie that (I assure you) tasted oh-so-delicious! This bunny is super soft and has a pink nose, ears and feet. I think maybe I should put some candies in the carrot sack this year! Click the pic to enlarge. 🙂
