Teddy Bear Town (and our Teddy Bears)
A few years ago, we had the pleasure of donating one of
our teddy bears to Teddy Bear Town, located in Hill
City, South Dakota.
We've had bears around our house since we got together in the late 1970's.
We even had a few in our RV. So, we decided to devote
a page from our website to some of our bears, and other
bears we've seen in our travels.
Teddy Bear Town
Teddy Bear Town is an 10,000+ bear showcase, located in Hill City, South Dakota. It's just a few miles
from Mount Rushmore, so it's easy to visit, when you are in the lovely
Black Hills area.
The bears occupy a small house along the highway, filling the area from floor to ceiling. Did I also
mention that they are well taken care of, including a special "bear hospital" facility?

The sign says it: 10,000+ bears at Teddy Bear Town, Hill City, South Dakota.
Lots of bears at Teddy Bear Town, Hill City, South Dakota.
There are floor-to-ceiling bears, so I had to use the wide-angle camera lens.
The image shown at the top of this web page shows a
bear that was part of
our lives from about 1980 on.
That big guy needed hospitalization, and is now on display
sitting high over the entrance
out of reach. The nautical pair came
from a cruise we took.
He has an official certificate, no less!
Bears We Have Seen
Typical bear accumulation we had in our RV.
An American flag made of teddy bears (Michigan).
A bear on a motorcycle. This was taken at the cathedral in Cologne, Germany,
during a "blessing of the motorcycles" event.
Saw this bear on the island of St. Maarten in the Caribbean. Must have
been uncomfortably hot for them; even in the shade, we were roasting!
The huge (80 inch) bear at Costco.
We could not fit one into our RV (or our house). We
have the 53 inch bear instead.
(notice that he has an employee nametag "Teddy")

television. (Note the penguins that decorate the TV area).
