Across The Seas

This is a very beautiful series. They bring all the different countries together.

There are only six bears that come with their own passport and that are:

KATRIEN (Holland) - BOB (United States of America) - BAZZA (Australia)- PRESTON (Canada) - FRANZ (Germany) - WILLIAM (United Kingdom). To obtain the bears with passport, you have to purchase them in that particular country. E.g. buy Bob in the US and he has a passport, buy Bob in Holland and he doesn't have a passport. 


This is your pilot, Lance. "Come Fly With Me"

He's special because he's the 1998 National Event Figurine.

(If you want to use this picture of Lance, please ask for Kristi Francis' permission. Thank you)

You can click on some of the flags to get additional information about a certain country.
