The Names Are Coming In For The New Big Bear At Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite

We love how creative people are with names for our big teddy bears that join the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite each year! Our tradition is that we add a new Big Bear each year, and you help us pick the name thru social media. Here was the big reveal!

Keep the names coming though. We’ll pick the top vote getter just before the doors to the Teddy Bear Suite open on December 1st. This new addition to the bear family of the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite is our seventh big, larger-than-life bear.

Can you believe it? He/she joins six other bears that are bigger than me — Obie, Quinn, Edgar, Lambert, TisBeary, and Chappy, and the hundreds of other teddy bears that create the magic of the Teddy Bear Suite.

  1. I vote “Moshup.” I agree that the bear’s color reminds me of fog!

    I think one of the Wampanoag legends is that the fog around the cliffs is attributed to the smoke from Moshup’s pipe

    1. Caroline – I love that so much! That’s so fitting -even better than my old fav Katama.

  2. Love the color of the new bear!
    I like the name “Amity”. I like the idea of keeping the name associated with the island in some way!
