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).
Hi! It has been a long time since I’ve posted! A new bearista friend, April, has inspired me to post again. So, for my first post in a long time I’m posting the Butterfly Bearistas. They are the 73rd (boy) and 74th (girl) editions of the Bearistas and they are from 2008. I believe they were only released in Asia. They have cute butterfly wings and yellow bellies with yellow antennae.

Christmas 2011 Bears and Friends!
Wanted to share my Christmas bear tree and a few new (and old) Starbucks bears. The bear with the fur hat and the puppy with the green scarf are new for the 2011 holiday season at Starbucks. All of the other bears pictured here are from past seasons. Hopefully someday I’ll get around to posting them all properly. Until then, here they are! 🙂 Happy Holidays! Click images to enlarge. 🙂
Asia Valentine Girl (2011)
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!

Little Bo Peep and Her Sheep Bearistas (2004)
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. 🙂
Yellow Chick Bearista (2003)
You know Spring has arrived when the baby chicks start popping out! Well, here we have the 2003 Yellow Chick Bearista that is the 25th Edition in the series. This bear has the older style fuzzy fur and an orange nose with orange chick feet and an orange beak in the chick hood on his head! The chick suit is yellow with a cute tuft of yellow fur on the very top of his head. He also has a metal tag on his left foot with the year indicated. A great bear! 🙂 Click to enlarge. 🙂
Rainbow Ribbon Bearista Rabbit (2008)
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. 🙂
Spring Lamb Bearista with Pink Bow (1999)
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. 🙂
Spring Bunny with Pink Apron (1998)
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. 🙂
