Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The peace and calm of life in Bear Country is disrupted by the arrival of Bearie Bubbies. The cubs will do anything to get their hands on these adorable, collectible little toys. As the fad gathers momentum, the cubs--not to mention Mama and Papa--start to feel the strain as they resort to desperate measures trying to get their paws on as many Beary Bubbies they can. With their usual folk wisdom and keen insight, Stan and Jan have tackled a subject that's near and dear to today's kids and parents alike.

By Ann W. Unemori on January 2, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book came right on the heels of the Beany Baby toy craze, but it fits perfectly for anyone, kid or grownup, who spends more time/money/interest on whatever the latest craze be, (Barbie, Yu-gi-oh, Digimon, the JFK auction, etc). I read this one out loud to my son, putting in sound effects and laughing at the characters, at the little whaddevers they were maniacally trying to buy, at the monomania of the cubs over the whole mess. I fear this may hit too close to home for some people--ever notice how many Beanys turn up at yard sales these days? SPOILER ALERT!!! As another reviewer noted, there is no real ending, the story just trails off, with Brother Bear's "What the heck did we just do?" look, and nobody's really learned anything. Now of course, there is a moral regarding passing fads, but it's just not as spelled out as explicitly as in most of the other books. Personally this had me on the floor laughing, my favorite line being "the only thing you could do with them was just LOOK at them", but I can see where other parents would object. Buy this one at your own risk, and write your own ending.

Berenstain Bears First Time Books usually touch upon some true to life problem that children encounter in their lives. The stories end with some meaning, helpful solution or an understanding that maybe it's not really a big problem. "Mad, Mad, Mad Toy Craze" does neither of these. The story is true to the Beanie Baby craze but there is no solution or even an understanding at the end. My children and myself were for the first time truly confused and disappointed with an ending of a Berenstain Bear book. If the goal of the book was for the children to come up with better ending to this story, then we succeeded. I will still continue buying this series but I will not recommend this book to anyone.

My 6-year old is a huge fan of the Berenstain Bears books, and this is one of his favorites. He likes the story and he understands the moral, even if he doesn's always follow the lesson learned!

My four-year-old son loves the Berenstain Bear Books. We have collected dozens of them. The Mad, Mad, Mad Toy Craze was one we didn't have until recently. The book is adorable and teaches children yet another life lesson. The seller sold the copy so cheap that they practically gave it away. The book arrived just days after ordering it and was like brand new.

To start. I am a BIG Berenstain Bears fan and NOT a Beanie Baby fan. With that said, this is the worst Berenstain book I have read. It's about the Beanie Baby craze and how it's kinda crazy and people collect them for money, but it is written is a way to make you feel stupid and that you wasted your money instead of having an actual moral like all their other books. I was completely surprised at the lack of an ending.
This book came bundled in another book and I can imagine that is becuase it is hard to sell on it's own.
