Hi Fee, nice to see you!

It's strange how we all latched on to the name of Rodney wearing the green velvet jacket and white fur lined hood...

Carmen, hope you enjoyed your stay in London. Great that you have the souvenir combining your marriage and honeymoon here. smile.gif

So Sandra, it takes another Ozzie (or is it Ossie) to teach us a ''bear'' thing
or too! wink.gif

smile.gif

Can you imagine if E.L. started producing the solid perfume bears from the previous years.......and NUMBERED THEM!!!! That would be a killing! (expression in the U.K. for making alot of money)!

What do you think about that??? ph34r.gif

Hi MitziMay, Sandra and Jacqueline and everyone else!

The 2001 Harrods bear is called Scott.  The Rodney bear is named after Harrods longest serving doorman and he wears a little green vest.  Harrods would be the ones to name them as it is originally their line of bears and EL have just recently started reproducing the little cuties as solids!

-thats my bit for the year!  laugh.gif  laugh.gif  wink.gif

Hi Fee

Nice to meet you!

In all the years of shopping at Harrods I have never seen a Doorman in a little green vest, obviously I have been coming in the wrong entrance. Thank you so much for the info.
Love

Well I think we have been given duff information about Rodney's name . . . I think when it was asked a while ago, someone said "Rodney", after the long serving doorman. No mention of "Scott" was made . . . . !! dry.gif

This was about two years ago or more???? Does anyone else remember? I'll have to look it up!!

Ok - I have been doing a little bit of digging. Here's the lowdown:

In June 03, we all had a conversation about the names of the Harrods bears. It was the member Chumney who said that they only named the first bear "Rodney" after the doorman who had recently passed away.

Ann refuted this and said that they made a mistake by calling it Rodney and changed it, but she couldn't remember what it was . . .

So we kept referring to him as 'Rodney', as Fee said - the longest serving doorman.

Only now have we been enlightened by the name 'Scott'.

Hi Ron,
Thanks for setting it straight. These guys are adorable! They look like they could be used as Christmas tree ornaments.

Very perceptive of you. That is exactly what they are, Resin Bear Christmas ornaments for the tree biggrin.gif Yes they are collectable and they are produced only for Christmas year printed on the bears foot.

Yes indeed Margaret.....a teddy bears' picnic! Can't wait for the snow
to settle in Regents Park so that I can take mine there again with
the newborn! LOL

Love the Rodney 150th Anniversary Collectable. At that time
Harrods were not producing the E.L bear solid perfumes so he has
no alter ego! rolleyes.gif

Well that's my teddy bear story.....so, if you go down to the woods
today, you're sure of a big surprise........ wink.gif ph34r.gif
