The Greeting BE@RBRICK series from MEDICOM TOY began as an alternative to traditional paper cards. Initially, this series was produced in a handy 100% size with an assortment of figures for birthdays, weddings, thank yous, and apologies. As the original series proved to be popular, MEDICOM TOY has upped the ante, creating two Greeting BE@RBRICK figures in 400% size. Even though, this new size is not as portable, BE@RBRICK collectors would most likely prefer to receive these toys than conventional cards. There are birthday and wedding versions available at MEDICOM TOY Exhibition 2013 and through project 1/6 online shop.
