  How did you select the first series of bears?
IMA Hero™ Collection celebrates influential people in the world over the past 1,000 years. We chose people who have made a positive contribution to society. They represent different nationalities, occupations, and time periods.

Are you planning to release more bears in the future?

How do you define "a hero?"
IMA Hero™ Collection has chosen well-known people for its first series. However, heroes do not have to be famous people. Heroes can come in different shapes and sizes. A hero can be a relative, teacher, coach, or friend. It is up to each person to choose their own heroes.

Do you consider the first series of heroes the most important people of the last millennium?
No. IMA Hero™ Collection does not rank the importance of achievers. Different people are important for different reasons. We provide you with information about each person and let you decide their importance for yourself.
