Teddys in Zurich

First came the lions, then we had cows followed by benches... and now we have the teddy parade!! I must admit that I quite like the little parades that Zurich organises. I wasn't too crazy about the benches. Anyway, as many of you may have read or heard, some people seem to take offence. They even went round and covered lots of bears with garbage bags and stuck notes on them!

The other rather entertaining thing I've heard about these bears is that there was a bondage bear! Apparently one of the bears was wearing a "teddy", stockings carrying a whip and some other bondage equipment! Quite funny I thought, but this poor bear was banned from the picknick!!

Whats your opinion on the teddy parade??

Re: Teddys in Zurich

Hi Lynn,

I don't know if you've heard by now but bärverse the dominatrix bear (take on "perverse") is in the Bell butchers on Bhfstrasse. If your back is facing the Bhf and you're looking down Bhfstrasse, it's onthe left - first butchers opposite Globus.


I think the Teddy's are cute and for some original Of course, they've grown on me now.

I think my favourite is the rice bear located near PAradeplatz, on bhfstrasse.

Re: Teddys in Zurich

Hi Lynn

As far as I know there are 2 duplicates (made by the same artist) that have been on sale on eBay. I could certainly see Beate Uhse buying one.

The butcher that has the dom bear is called Kaufmann's, they said they would take her as they display enough meat in store anyway! Quite clever!
