Most of us at one point or another fell in love with the adorable teddy bear! Now with movies such as Ted the Talking Bear, we cannot help but find the adorable fluffy toys still invading our screens, shelves, bedsides and tables! Wouldn’t it be great if you had a wise cracking, obnoxious and adorable bear like Ted to be your companion?
The next best thing is three levels of teddy bear history and all sorts of teddy bears to adore and hug all you like. Where can you see this, why on Teddy Island off course! The Teddy Bears have landed in Pattaya, Thailand and in a ship like show house right on busy Beach Road, the most popular tourist place in Pattaya.
With more than one thousand bears of all types and sizes in fantastic themed displays, it is a knock out for the kids and the kid in you. Mooted and created by a well-known Teddy Bear manufacturer in Korea, he dedicated a whole museum in Thailand to the love of a bearish fantasy. Each bear here is an individual one-of-a-kind bear and handmade. A museum on bear-essentials for bear lovers and collectors.
There are also some great bear murals and sculptures in here, making it a very colorful museum. You might also enjoy the photo opportunities here to pose with your favorite bear or just laze around on a comfortable bear. Yes, you read it right, ON a bear!
Check out the Egyptian and Aztec Bear Room. The Mummy bears are cute here and so is the sculptured Aztec Guard bears. There are also rows of mini bears everywhere.
Another of my favorite is the Vampire Bear cave. Cute Vampish bears are hanging from the ceiling on stalactites and in little nooks and crannies. The Vampire Bear is quite adorable. Unfortunately they do not have these for sale, would have made a nice edition to my collection!
Next up is the Prehistoric Room. Plenty of bears here too but the main attraction in this room is actually the life-sized Tyrannosaurus Rex and the very realistic Dino Eye in a corner. There are many Jurassic themed bears here in all sizes.
In the Archaeology Room you can find lots of Indiana Jones styled bears. What is interesting here are the numerous little bears in all manner of excavation jobs digging up fossils. One can almost imagine a civilization of little hardworking bears digging away in the dirt!
There are many more rooms downstairs but one floor up and down is the Movie room and Fairy Tale room. This would be a hit for the kids especially little girls that like fluffy dressed girl bear, unicorns and fairy bear. There is even a tree house in here with a slide for all ages and sizes.
The Movie room has Marvel Hero bears, Star Wars bears and even a gigantic Avatar Bear. The Darth Vader bear however needs more realistic Darth Vader helmet and Re-breather to look more authentic and so does the Jedi bear.
Checkout my gallery for more bearish lovelies at Teddy Bear Island. It is easy to find this museum which is along the front street of Beach Road Pattaya. It is at a corner building facing the beach and sea. Opening hours are from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm and tickets to go to this museum retails at THB500 per person.
