Big Lucky Bear 

The Story of The Bear House 

The Story of The Bear House 

I have been lucky enough to live in New Orleans for a while. This city is filled with more magic than most. One day, while walkin my dog, I came upon this BIGGGG cement BEAR outside of someone's house. I stopped and read the sign which I have pictured above. Every day after that, I would walk by this house and rub that big bear's nose and wonder who was cool enough to live there. Another day, while exiting our neighborhood movie theater, a friendly man approached me and my daughter. He had a teddy bear shirt on and a GIANT gold bear ring and a bear bracelet. He introduced himself as Ricky Lenart, the man who lives in The Teddy Bear House!! I almost fell down. It was like meeting Santa Claus! He gave us his card and let us inspect his golden bear ring which is spectacular! Once home, we checked out his website. So, the little window diorama above the BIGGG BEAR is seasonal and get's changed (HURRAY DAY!!!!) and you can tour his teddy bear collection , which looks AMAZING, during the winter holidays!!! Oh, Mr. Ricky Lenart, I am so glad that you do what you do! The world needs MAGIC and you are delivering it in a furry lucky wonderful way!
