International Exclusives

Bertie Duncan Gordon Sherlock
The UK Bears consist of four bears that were only sold in the UK and Canada. Bertie, Duncan, Gordon, and Sherlock are bears that represent the many facets of the UK. Duncan comes complete with kilt and bagpipes; Gordon protects the queen; Sherlock comes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories about the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. This quartet first came out in 1995. Due to easy breakage, Duncan's bagpipes were remolded for later versions.

   Cameron: The Canadian Exclusive Cameron was supposed to be released in the fall of 1998, but various problems resulted in a release in February 1999. The very first batch of Camerons contain an spelling error on the bottom with "Canadian" misspelled as "Candian". Cameron was retired at the end of 1999.

Cameron was named after an Enesco Canadian Distributor. This figurine contains a hiker who comes across a beaver building a dam.
