Playful Critics Globe Bear Review & Giveaway



Isn’t this little guy just so adorable? My daughter thinks so. Every since we have met “Beary”, she has become SO attached to him. She tags him along with her wherever we go. Wherever you see Adisyn, you see “Beary”.

She makes me tuck him into bed with her at night, sits him beside her when she eats, and buckles him into the car when we go somewhere. It is SO cute how much she loves him.

“Beary” as Adisyn has named him comes from the Playful Critics line. The globe bear was designed to help parents and teachers to teach children about the five oceans and continents of the world.

This has been an amazing conversation starter about the world, because Adisyn is naturally curious anyway. She wanted to know what the green things were- and I was able to explain to her that they were countries. She is only 3, so she didn’t grasp the WHOLE thought out plan of what continents were- but we are definitely working on it.

She did understand that where WE live isn’t the only places on Earth. This really got the ball rolling about different kinds of people. We talked about how different people on other continents ate other things then what we eat, and how children are different as well.

The Globe bear contains recycled material- so not only are you getting the chance to teach your kids about the excitement of the world- you ARE actually helping the world! Cool, huh?

The Playful Critics Globe Bear as won an award from PTPA Media (Parent Tested, Parent Approved).. AND I can see why. It is so soft, cuddly, and cute. Adisyn loves it, and it opens up a chance to talk about things that a 3 year old might not otherwise understand.

This is Adi’s new buddy, and when she gets him dirty- I can just throw him in the wash and he comes out looking brand new. He is 12 inches tall and is for children 3+.
