The largest collection of teddy bears is 20,367 items and was achieved by Istvánné Arnóczki (Hungary) in Harsány, Hungary, on 27 April 2019.
As a child, Arnóczki grew up in poverty and never owned a teddy bear. Her dream was to have one that she could cuddle at night. She bought her first ever teddy bear in 1978, when she was in her twenties, and never stopped buying more!
Her personal collection, now made up of items she has purchased and received as donations, is stored in the Teddy Museum her local village in Hungary.
