Bears at Home

“Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, climb the stairs.”

At our school, among my friends, this was the start of a jump rope rhyme.

Bears have been featured as toys for a few generations, more than a century. Soft bears to cuddle come in all sizes. Carved wooden bears to march and roam across the floor — mixed in with the building blocks. They are an animal featured in stories from traditional Goldilocks to the popular family called Bearenstein.

This puzzle of the Bear family at home features objects from several different past decades. (And also occupied time during these stay-at-home days.)

Which things have you used? Do you recognize?
