The Nisbet Celebrity Collection
Shown above are just a few of the celebrity bears from this collection - please refer to the pane on the right for details of the rest
To quote from the 1988 Dolls and Teddy Bears catalogue of 1988 :
"The Nisbet Celebrity Collection is made up of "mostly" bears sponsored by celebrities in our world of childhood treasures. Leading authors, artists, and other well-known people in the teddy bear world are joining with House of Nisbet to bring you replicas of their favourite furry friends."
Most characters in the collection were in the 10" to 12" size range, and all were to be offered as a Signature Edition limited to the first 5000 sold worldwide. Each Signature Edition model was signed by the human celebrity "parent" on a glove leather patch, sewn on to the model, and accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Please note that 5502 - Uncle Wiggily, although part of the Nisbet Celebrity Collection, is not a bear, but a rabbit!
