Mokiup Bear is named after one of the rescued sun bears at our Cambodian Sanctuary. Mokiup Bear stands 12cm tall and is small enough to fit in your pocket or backpack. He is perfect for tiny hands and can go anywhere with you.
The real Mokiup (pronounced mook-yup) is one of Free the Bears' greatest success stories, rescued from a tiny cage in 2004 in atrocious conditions with a chain around his neck. He was in such a poor condition he was affectionately named Mokiup, which roughly translates as "ugly-face" in Cambodia's native language, Khmer.
Over a decade later and no one would call him that! Mokiup is now a beautiful and trusting bear, always putting on a show for visitors, happy in the knowledge he is cared for and always safe from harm, thanks to our supporters.
