In 2007 Starbucks came out with another Conservation International (conservation.org) collaboration. This time there were no bearistas (that I know of), but they had a Costa Rican Tree Frog, a Tropical Butterfly, and Capuchin Monkeys. There was also a small tumbler cup with monkeys on it. Ten percent of the sale of each item went to Conservation International.
Well, I just bought the 2010 Winter Bearista and the mouse that goes with it. I also got the mouse tumbler and mouse mug. They are all really cute. The bear is reading a book that says “The Mouse Writer.” He has a winter outfit complete with green, white and red snowflake sweater, a red stocking cap, red pants and brown fuzzy boots! The mouse’s name is Huxley and he is a mouse writer apparently. He is wearing a red scarf with brown vest and he has a pink nose and off-white fur. The mouse mug says “One day a squirrel went out looking for acorns and found a friend.” It has a picture of the mouse and squirrel and a little sculpture of the mouse on the top of the handle. The tumbler is a smaller size and it says “Hello, I’m Huxley.” Huxley is on the tumbler along with a Christmas tree and stuff in a room. Click on the photos to enlarge them! 🙂
