Hi. I think they started doing the bears in 1998 with Teddies. I think that's the first EL Harrods Bear. I too have been searching for the 2001 bear, it's the only one I don't have. Really hard to find.
This morning I spoke with Alison at Harrods and ordered the Bear, Flag, Bridge and Guard. I already have the Rider. I haven't bought any others as they show up on Ebay so I'm sure I'll eventually have them.
Happy Diwali Everybody. (it's the Indian Festival of Lights holiday) <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
All the Best,
