Hide and Seek of the Week

This week's collections object is the Fisher Price Cuddly Cub!

Manufactured throughout the 1970s, this bear is the perfect combination teddy bear and chime ball, two childhood favorites. With a rounded chime ball base, Cuddly Cub simply rocks and chimes when pushed.

But Cuddly Cub isn't the only Teddy Bear hiding out in our collections cases. Teddy Bear Faire is fast approaching (Friday, May 28th to Monday, May 31st) and everyday there seems to be more and more teddy bears hiding throughout the museum.

So keep your eyes peeled and see how many bears you can find on your next visit! And while you are finding all those bears, don't forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and including your child in the conversation. For example: What is your favorite teddy bear? How old do you think this teddy bear is? What games do you think this teddy likes to play?
