Jim Henson's Creature Shop built a full body puppet of the Coca-Cola Polar Bear for Coca-Cola promotional appearances. They later modified the design and created additional suits for the World of Coca-Cola museum located in Atlanta, Georgia and the Everything Coca-Cola store in Las Vegas.
The suit is usually puppeteered, although it can be featured as just a walk-around costume. John Henson made appearances in the original suit for Coca-Cola public relations tours, which sometimes involved the bear sledding and skiing.
The character has since toured on occasion, appearing at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
