**I originally posted this review under the item listing where we had bought this, which is now listed as "discontinued." But it's clear that this is the same item, so I am re-posting it here where more people are likely to see my review. I don't want this outstanding toy to be overlooked!**

I had been thinking for some time of buying "counting bears" to help my 3-year-old daughter better connect the math equations she was (totally on her own) memorizing, with real-world understanding of counting, adding and subtracting. I only finally took the leap when I noticed that these bears were available with the free Super Saver Shipping.

OH, what a wonderful purchase. 50 bears, sturdy and plastic, and they're quite cute, sitting upright and easily balanced. The bears' colors are vivid and exactly match the colors of the cups, which are a big part of what separates this toy from others.

Let's face it, kids like to grab things, move them around, arrange them as they see fit, and this is a toy that caters to those impulses. There's no aspect of "Here is how you are SUPPOSED to play with this," no rules, no narrative, nothing to interfere with good old-fashioned manipulation and experimentation.

Almost without fail now -- for several weeks -- my daughter has woken up asking to play with her counting bears. She pours them out on her table, then dutifully sorts them by color, filling in each cup with that color of bear. She hardly needs practice in color recognition or sorting, so at first I thought she might grow bored with this. But I've been so wrong, her play has only become more involved as she's repeated the routine. I haven't needed to try to deliberately use these bears to teach elementary math -- they do it themselves.

I have been searching everywhere for these bears, and was thrilled to finally find them.
I'm a substitute teacher, speciallizing in preschool and elementary grade levels and a long time babysitter. These bears are wonderful tools for helping little ones learn about colors, both naming and sorting, and a whole slew of counting and math activities.
I've found that these bears are helpful for a wide range of age groups. Even if you think your child isn't quite ready for naming or sorting, just letting the child play with the bears, because of their size, can help with fine motor skills. The act of picking up the bears and getting them to stand up right can be a helpful part of play. !*real little ones should probably wait until they've stopped putting things in their mouth for this one.*!
For older children, the fun colors and cute bears make introduction to math a lot of fun, even if it's just the occassional question during play of, "Let's count the red bears that are over here, or I have five green bears, can you help me get to seven green bears?"
I highly recommend these durable and fun toys for anyone whose got a little one, especially if they are hungry to learn and you've not been sure what to use to help them.

Aside from all the wonderful, yet obvious uses for this toy (counting, sorting, color recognition, math) my 2.5 year old daughter's Early Intervention teachers use these to work on her language skills (both expressive and receptive). For example, they put bears all around the room and then say "I see a bear ON TOP of the bookshelf!" And my daughter has to listen and go find it. They work on words like "under" "over" "beneath" "between" "near" etc. She loves hunting all around the room and listening to the clues. When sorting, they work on numeracy words like "few" "many" "most" "all" "some" and "none." For example, they will ask her to put a "few" in the cup, or to find "all" the bears and put them in the cup, etc. I love toys that can be used in many, many ways and this one fits the bill! So many great uses!

I love these counting bears. My daycare kiddos played and played with them. From sorting colors to just pouring from cup to cup.

I sat all 5 cups on a tray and poured the bears next to them. I was really surprised that the 2 year olds could sort colors so quickly. I have ages 4 and under and they all really loved playing with these.

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. The reason for the 'hate' might not affect some people though. Firstly, I love the simplicity. You get 5 plastic cups and 50 plastic bears. There are 10 bears in 5 different colors with a color coordinating cup. Within 15 mins of showing this to my 2 year old, he was sorting the bears into the correct color cups - which is something I've tried with other methods of teaching him colors that didn't work. There are many other coordinating products that work with the set for more advanced usage (pattern cards, different size bears etc).
Here comes the 'hate' part. Within the first day, we lost 1 bear. By the first week. 7 were missing. Depending on what activities you're doing, or how many children are participating, this might not be a problem...or if you're a meticulous super-mom and keep an eye on the kids and bears and count the damn things every 10 mins. I honestly cannot give less stars on the product though, just because I can't keep all the bears together. I ended up ordering a 2nd set just to slowly replace the other bears (which worked out well because then we had 10 cups total for when there are multiple kiddos playing).
All in all, I love it. Any product that has my son making complex color patterns at age 2, is fantastic in my book!
