The company celebrated the anniversary of a momentous achievement by introducing - The Mount Everest Bear (personally commissioned by Sir Edmund Hillary in 1993 to mark his successful ascent of Everest in 1953).

First successful ascent by Tenzing and Hillary:

May 29, 1953 by the New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay from Nepal climbing the South Col Route. At the time, both acknowledged it as a team effort by the whole expedition, but Tenzing revealed a few years later that Hillary had put his foot on the summit first.

Hillary (a subject of Queen Elizabeth, through her role as head of state of New Zealand) was knighted in the Order of the British Empire, a KBE, for the ascent.
