Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Fall 2010 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Folkmanis, Inc.
Price: $19.99

This polar bear can be added to any child's collection of toys. Snuggly fur cloaks the body, leaving leather-like claws, soles, eyes, and mouth peeking through. Ample hand and finger space is provided for the puppeteer in the four leg areas, but the task of manipulating the bear's mouth is tougher for young fingers. Numerous bear stories can be enhanced with this enticing toy.
