Teddy Bear Farm @Sokcho

Located in Sokcho, the Teddy Bear Farm Gallery offers a glimpse into the unique lifestyle of Sokcho through teddy bears: teddy bears are displayed mountain-climbing, skiing, playing golf, riding a boat from Abai Village to downtown, working hard on a squid fishing boat, sun tanning, or even defending the country. It is a must-visit for Teddy Bear lovers! Visitor can also purchase their favorite teddy bears at the gift shop.

According to our tour guide about the history of teddy bears: "teddy" got its name from the US President Theodore Roosevelt, whose nickname is "Teddy".

So many huge teddy bears...some bigger and taller than me

Luv all the teddy bears especially the one in traditional costume- hanbok

Outside the farm house, there is more teddy bear figurines..but due to the bad weather...is raining, so I did manage to go out and snap more photos. Only a few shots from inside the farm house.
