This is Martin, made in Canterbury, UK by the Canterbury Bear Co. One year ago this week I got him from the Hamley's at St. Pancras Station in London. Here, he is enjoying the beautiful Isle of Wight. He is named after the (possibly unfortunate) Old Martin, the first grizzly bear brought to England. He was given to the Royal Menagerie by the Hudson's Bay Company and kept in the Tower of London in the 1800s. His ghost has been reported once, haunting the Tower. Teddy Forest's Martin has happily settled in to the West Coast lifestyle and says the rain reminds him of home.
