Buddy Bears in Sydney, Australia
Thanks to Dr. Klaus Herlitz for sending the beautiful photo of the United Circle of Buddy Bears in Sydney. The bears are on a world tour to raise money for UNICEF and to encourage International friendship.
According to the United Buddy Bears website, "After Europe and Asia, the United Buddy Bears have conquered another continent on their tour around the world Australia! With the support of the Goethe-Institut and the German Consulate in Sydney and in close co-operation with Hamburg Süd, Schenker and UNICEF, the exhibition is presented in Sydney between 3rd March and 9th April 2006. The bears all designed by international artists are standing hand in hand at the Circular Quay in the Harbour of Sydney, promoting their message of international understanding. Framed by the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, the exhibition on the waterfront provides an extraordinary sight. The Sydney Harbour Authority is expecting a total of at least 1 million visitors."

A Very Special Buddy Bear Book
Most Kids Corner visitors are aware of the very special Buddy Bears that our friend Petra from Germany makes. They are all unique and beautiful. Recently she sent a small book of her Buddy Bears to Jackie and when he saw it, he was really impressed. He looked through it and when he came to The Myth Buddy, he started laughing. "I love this Myth bear!" he said, and started laughing again.
Jackie suggested taking a photo to show you the little book (opened to his favorite bear, of course):
Thanks to Petra for sharing her terrific artwork with us!

Kids Corner visitor Constantin recently sent in his hilarious comic "Project BB: The Secret Document." When Project BB* director Benny Chan had a look at it, he was very impressed, as was Jackie. So Constantin received a special treat in the mail this week - his original comic autographed by both Benny and Jackie. Jackie wanted to keep the original, but we reassured him that we had it scanned and saved in the computer. Congratulations Constantin!
And under the heading of Better Late Than Never, Anita has sent us her t-shirt contest entry TWO YEARS LATE! That's okay - we are happy to see it. Thanks Anita!
*The movie that Jackie is currently filming has been using the working title of Project BB. The official English title is Rob-B-Hood.

Buddy Bears Support UNICEF's Relief Efforts in Pakistan
Last weekend the United Buddy Bears appeared on a frozen lake in Berlin to raise money for UNICEF's efforts to help the victims of the Pakistani earthquake. In the words of Buddy Bear creator Eva Herlitz, "UNICEF urgently needs more money to fight the cold conditions in Pakistan after the earthquake. We decided to have the bears on a frozen lake to attract people´s attention to the problems in Pakistan and raise money for the children freezing there. It was a big success!"
Here are several photos from the event:

A Gift for Matthew
Iris, Sophia, Constantin, and Alexander from Germany sent a unique gift for Matthew (star of Project BB, Jackie's new movie). Here it is:
According to Iris (Sophia, Constantin, and Alexander's mother), these are called "Dolls of Sorrow" and are popular in Latino countries. Here's what you do with them: "When you go to bed, you take the puppets out of the bag and tell them all your sorrows and put them back into the bag. The bag must be hidden under your pillow, and the very next morning all the sorrows are gone. Sometimes they speak to you in your dreams, giving you advice. It really works if you believe in it."
[All you Moms out there - don't worry. We won't let Matthew touch the little dolls. They are clearly a choking hazard!]
Project BB: The
The Kids Corner owes a big thank you to Constantin for sending in his creative and very funny comic about what really goes on behind the scenes at the Project BB set. Thank you!
