I've had just enough time to... see the smiles the Buddy Bears bring.
Taken when the Buddy were in Kuala Lumpur lifting up their arms.
Art and Culture
Each Buddy Bear shows the individual design created by different artists on behalf of their native countries. The international artists’ different styles are joined together in one work of art, spreading zest for Life. The diverse design of the Buddy Bears – always typical for the respective countries – enables the visitor to experience a journey around the globe.
Buddy Bears activities and aid for children in need have formed an inseparable unit. To date, around E1,800,000 (Aug 2011) have been raised through donations and auctions in aid of UNICEF and local children’s relief organizations.
