The Bearista Catalog

Starbucks began releasing Bearistas in 1997 to commemorate holidays, stores, cities, countries, endangered animals, and even Major League Baseball teams. At their height in the late 2000's, more than 60 Bearistas were appearing each year. In recent years, the bears have largely disappeared from U.S. stores, although a few are still released in Asia and Europe.

This site catalogs all of the known Bearistas, as well as a few of their friends. The photographs are of the Bearistas in our personal collection. Click a picture to see a larger view and a caption. The captions indicate the year the Bearista was released, its edition number (if any), whether the bear was released in the United States or elsewhere, and the name of any special series to which the bear belongs (e.g., the Destination Series of country bears, the Local Series of city bears, and the MLB series of Major League Baseball team bears).

We are grateful to the creators of other Bearista web sites, and we join them and the many other Bearista fans in urging Starbucks to resume production of these delightful, well-dressed, furry friends. Comments are welcome. Contact admin@bearista.org.
