Today I bought a very, very rare walking Bimbo bear. As you might remember from a former entry, Bimbo (the most known brand of bakeries in Latin America) gave several years ago a lot of cute plush bears as purchase gifts, and past January I got a plush bear in excellent condition.
This time, I got one of the holy grails in mexican collecting circles: the most sought of all Bimbo bears, the walking one. Unfortunately I couldn’t get him walking (I replaced the batteries and his mechanism still works, but maybe some piece is broken and he can’t walk or swing his hands), but still he has all his tags and despite the lack of his bread loaf under his arm, this bear is complete and in pristine condition.
Incredibly I got him for just $5 pesos!! (less than 40 dollar cents) Now that’s what I call a great deal =D
Look at his size, compared to my another Bimbo bear:
P.S. Yup: that’s my PC monitor in the background, displaying Roger Rabbit =3
