The German-written interpreted hang-tag reads: In crossing over to the next miliennium, HERMANN-Spielwaren GmbH in Coburg presents an extra-ordinary time document with the creation of the "Milennium Bear" uniquely designed with a built-in time capsule. The daily newspaper is one of the best resources we have to reflect the passing of time. Thus, locked in the time capsule is a daily newspaper documenting the movement of mankind toward the next millennium. The capsule contains a wealth of information on many subjects such as: politics, economy, culture, food prices and of course the weather report.
With the help of the time capsule, HERMANN-Coburg is going to feed the "Millennium Bear" with information about our present day. Time capsules filled with memorabilia have been buried underground again and again or kept in other secure places for the purpose of preserving life's knowledge to be passed on to future generations for centuries and eventually found.
