Jackie Miley (USA) has entered the Guinness World Records 2018 book with the world's Largest collection of teddy bears, after collecting an incredible 8,026 unique toys.
She lives in Hill City, South Dakota, USA - a town whose population numbers little more than a tenth of Jackie’s toy bear collection!
Most of the items in her record-breaking hoard make their home in Teddy Bear Town, a small house located on Main Street in Hill City.
Jackie’s collection first began with a bear (named “Grandma Jackie”) which she won while on vacation in 2000.
Within her assortment, the smallest teddy bear is just 3/4 inches, with the largest spanning nearly 8 feet!
Jackie is featured in the Guinness World Records 2018 book alongside many more extraordinary collections.
