Greetings everyone!

Well, here I am writing my very first entry in my travelog. It's all very exciting!

I'm brand new to TV and am eagerly awaiting my very first adventure.

I've just contacted the Haunted City Trail and asked if I could join it, paws crossed they say yes. It seems like just the trip for a bear who lives in a graveyard.

Well, I'll write again soon

Yours frightfully

Greetings friends!

Boy! Did I have fun today!

While waiting to head out on the Haunted Trail I have been staying with a lovely young lady named Allie.

Allie is a roller skating coach, and this afternoon she took me with her to help with her Learn to Skate classes!

Me with my lovely host Allie.

First thing we had to do was find me a pair of skates. They didn't have any just my size so I had to make do.

It was a bit tricky at first but once I got the hang of it there was no stopping me!


These were the smallest size they had!

Skating is hot work, especially on a day that was pushing 40 degrees Celsius and when you're wearing a fur coat!

It wasn't long before I needed to give my little legs a rest.


Here I am resting on Allie's figure skates. Allie is a 3 time Australian representative skater and a former Australian Champion! Not bad for 15!

Then when all the skating was done we had to put all the hire skates away - peweee!! Did they smell BAD!

All packed up and ready to go home for tea.

Anyway that's all for now. I have to get to bed because tomorrow is the first day back at school for Allie and I'm going with her so I'll need my rest!

I'll write again soon

Hi fellow ToyVoyagers and their Hosts!

Well, school was great!

I don't know what kids complain about, I had a fantastic time.

I travelled to school in Allie's backpack which was heaps of fun.


I waved to all the kids on the bus. They thought I was pretty cute, for a new kid I fitted in pretty well.

It was lucky I was there really, so I could help Allie out with Physics and Chemistry. I think she should be OK now.


Now I'm a tired little teddy bear and am ready for bed. I have a very busy weekend ahead, I leave on Monday for Canada! How exciting! I hope I can get to sleep.


I will write again soon

Greetings friends!

Well, what a week it has been!

This time last week I was all excited about my first big trip. I had spent all day Sunday preparing to say goodbye to Daisy and all my Boneyard bear brothers and sisters.

We even had a group photo taken and it all got a bit emotional, even though a couple of the others are a bit jealous that I'm the one going away. But that's another story.


By late afternoon I was all packed and ready to go on the Haunted Trail; first stop Canada!

I went to bed early so I would be well rested for the trip (I get a bit grumpy when I don't catch enough zzzz)

It had been pouring with rain all during the day and the whole city had been thrashed by violent storms, but as I snuggled up in my bed I felt cosy and safe and I drifted off to sleep dreaming off all the adventures I was sure to have.

Well, you know what they say, the best laid plans of bears and men and all that....in the early hours of the morning we were all awoken by a huge crash!

At first we thought someone was trying to break in, but it didn't take long to discover that the only thing that had broken in was the ceiling! A large part of it had completely collapsed!

Naturally, I couldn't leave Daisy and the others, I had to stay and help clean up.

Daisy needed lots of hugs to calm her down. Especially when the insurance people said they wouldn't pay for the damage!


Here I am dancing on the ceiling, although now the ceiling is on the floor!


Here I am having a bit of a rest...there was a LOT of mess to clean up.

Well, now I've done all I can do to help I will be leaving for the Haunted Trail.

I'd better get to bed,  don't want to be grumpy for my trip , after all I'm really just a loveable scamp.

That's all folks!

Hi everyone this is Daisy and I am Dinah Meetcha's mentor.

Today Dinah left her home in the Boneyard to go on her very first overseas trip.

We were all very excited, although a little sad to say goodbye. I trust that her hosts will take good care of her and that she will return to us safely with lots of exciting stories to tell.

Dinah stayed close to me all morning (I think she was a little nervous).


Then came the journey to the post office and our last goodbye!


Here she is climbing into her bubble-lined flight bag! I hope she's comfortable and can get enough air!

Well, it's over to her hosts now. I can't wait to hear what she gets up to!

That's all for now

Yeah!  :p  Not to worry any more Mom! Finally I've arrived on the other side of the world! It was a very long trip but worth it because I've already made new friends.  Fingal and Soar


I can't wait to get out into the snow, another TV Soar is here and wants to go sledding! Says it's on his list of things to do.

Dinah finally gets out to see North Bay! The weather has been ... well frightful to say the least. Rain and snow for two weeks and miserably cold. But today was a fin day!

First we started with a bus tour around town!

Then we visit the local attractions with Soar

Hi mom!  I have made it to Abby's house in beautiful British Columbia!  I just wanted to let you know that I am safe and in good hands.
