    5.0 out of 5 stars Our best buy in ages! 12 July 2011
    Verified Purchase
    Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I bought this for my daughter (age 2) and I have been seriously impressed with this toy, which was very popular even when she was ill and disinterested in almost everything. I suspect any fan of Goldilocks would very much approve and it would be suitable for girls and boys alike.

    This is a simple puzzle, but the range of pieces with 5 different faces, tops and bottoms for each bear, gives plenty of scope for dressing them and telling stories. I can see we will get plenty of mileage from it. As it's wooden, it's robust and should withstand a lot of play. The 45 pieces fit neatly in the box, divided into three compartments - one for each bear. The board slides on top as a lid, so it's a good toy for travelling and easy to pack away. I also prefer that it is not linked to a particular TV character because I will have enough problems when Peppa Pig falls out of favour.

    The only things to you need to be aware of are (and here I echo the view of one or two other reviewers):

    - The pieces are wooden but, I think, the images are printed on paper and stuck on. Not good for children who nibble on their toys.
    - The five expressions show, very roughly: sleep; happiness; sadness; anger and shock/surprise. This is obviously great for teaching about emotions (particularly using the Goldilocks story) but if you are selecting a face at random, your bear will probably be having a bad day. I would have preferred another positive emotion, possibly where they are laughing or something.

    Very good value for less than a tenner!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing.. 22 Feb 2011
    Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    The reason I'm disappointed in this product is because the clothes aren't clearly defined. Sometimes it can be an overall top with a t-shirt, sometimes a dress top, a t-shirt, a sweater, often you will have more than one item of clothing in the same puzzle piece. The legs will always be whatever bottom (skirt, trousers, shorts) with whatever footwear (socks, shoes etc). That's fine if you just want to play, but I bought it as an educational thing to help my son with his speech delay. He's never wanted to play with it, it hasn't really caught his attention and I think part of the reason is that. The faces are all great, you have many different expressions with lots to talk about, but despite that we haven't really played with it at all. Quality-wise it's great. The pieces are sturdy and if you arrange them correctly you can fit them all in the provided box without having loose bits on top.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for teaching emotional empathy! 9 Aug 2010
    Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I work in a nursery and we have the single bear version of this puzzle. I am buying the whole bear family because Mr Bear is such a popular toy. One little boy in particular who is very bright but has had some problems relating to other childrens' emotions, plays with it constantly, talking to himself about the bear's expressions and feelings and the reasons why he is feeling sad or happy 'Now he's a worried bear, he's worried because it's snowing...I know, I'll put his warm scarf on, now he's wearing his happy face', he says, or 'now he's got his happy face on because he loves his nice red jumper'. I think he and others will be overjoyed to have a whole bear family to dress and analyse the 'emotional' interactions between the bears!

    4.0 out of 5 stars great toy for our 2 year old girl 21 Nov 2012
    By Melissa
    Verified Purchase
    Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    This wooden toy has a tray with holes for Mummy, Daddy and baby bear. The tray slides out to reveal the box with the wooden pieces underneath. Each bear has three sections - head, body and bottom. I bought this as a christmas present when my daughter was 18months. Each face had a different expression and I found this toy was brilliant for teaching emotions - sad, happy, tired angry. My daughter perhaps didn't have the best dress sense but she has spent hours playing with this toy, still pulling it out age 3 to play with. It is small and easy to travel with. I have taken it away with us a couple of times. I would recommend this toy

    1.0 out of 5 stars Wood Splinters 4 Jan 2013
    By Jon
    Verified Purchase
    Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
    A very poorly made product indeed. Arrived in good time but this in not suitable for small children at all. The wooden clothes are painted on the front and plain on the back. The back is just bare wood which is of low quality and splinters off far too easily, causing small, sharp shards of wood to come loose in the child's hand, potentially causing cuts to the hand or even worse a choking hazard!! Fortunately we checked the toy before handing it to our little ones.
    I don't often write reviews but felt it was needed in this case in the interest of safety.
    I have returned it to amazon and I'm currently waiting on a refund.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible quality 27 Feb 2013
    Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
    My daughter was given this as a birthday present and the quality is terrible. The images are misaligned so they weren't cut out properly and the pieces don't fit together, the box has a crack in the side which you would not notice whilst still in the cellophane and all the edges to the pieces have splinters. Luckily daughter has forgotten about it (she's 2 and was distracted with birthday cake) so I managed to take it away, I was going to see if I could sand it down but it looks like it isn't worth the effort. Not something I would recommend buying for a child.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Learning Role Play and Emotions 16 Sep 2013
    By looby
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this for my daughters 3rd Birthday. She is now 4 and from the day she got, she still loves playing with it. She still likes to pick their clothes and matches them up well. SHe likes to choose whether they will be happy or sad or going to bed and likes to make up story's with them.

    The only bad thing I have to say is that if your child likes to chew their toys as my daughter did), the pieces are easy to chew on and imprint or even break bits off so it's probably best to watch with this toy until they are old enough not to chew their toys.
