3 Distinct Sizes
Children learn size recognition as they identify and group the 3 sizes of bears. There are big Papa Bears, medium Mama Bears, and small Baby Bears.
Just Right for Counting
This generous 96-piece set encourages children to count higher than with smaller sets! Plenty of pieces also means several children can use the bears to count and learn together.
So Many Ways to Sort
Six colors and 3 sizes offer endless opportunities to sort, group, classify, and pattern. Group by color, sort into families, classify by size, and more.
When playtime is over, these bears store neatly in their reusable, clear storage container.
Help students learn basic and abstract math concepts with hands-on bear manipulatives. Bears are proportionally weighted to use on a balance for measurement. 96-piece set includes 24 Papa, 24 Mama and 48 Baby Bear counters, storage container, and activity guide.

I have them take samples, and then weigh the samples and calculate the mean and standard deviation of the various samples , it provides a concrete example of how standard deviation varies. Plotting those means then shows them how the central limit theorem works.
The large size bear weighs 12g, the medium 8g and the small 4g.
The bears themselves are nice and the shipping box along with a couple of other items in it was ok. I just want tub full that has the correct amount in it.
The only negative that I have is I wish the orange bears were more of a pumpkin orange. The ones we received are more of a red orange and can easily be mistaken for red by someone just learning their colors. My suggestion would be to make sure you sort all of the bears before beginning the lesson. If you just leave them all mixed up it is very easy to confuse the red with the orange bears.

Large 24 bears ( 4 each colour ) Height approx just under 4 cm 1 ½ “
Medium 24 bears ( 4 each colour ) Height approx just under 3.5 cm 1 ¼ “
Small 48 bears ( 8 each colour ) Height approx just over 2.5 cm 1 “
All bears are in the sitting position, so easy to use & position. Small bears have a small circular indentation on the base. Medium bears, a small circular hole & large bears have a large circular hole, as though a pencil topper. These aren't toppers, I guess this is for the correct weight of plastic. They all live happily in the tub when not getting up to mischief. The clear tub plastic is brittle. Flexible lid plastic pushes over the tub, giving a snug and secure fit.
From the guide sheet...
“ Three Bear Family Counters are perfect for helping young children act out and understand abstract math concepts. These adorable counters are also great for imaginative play! “...
“ Activities focus on these number concepts; Sorting, comparing sets, addition, counting, estimating, subtraction, visual memory, patterning and sequencing “...
The guide sheet gives a brief synopsis for the following activities...
“ Sorting by Colour and Size, A Colour Parade, Counting, Zoo Bears, Counting Game, Estimating, Visual Memory, Sequencing, Number Stories and Zero Bears “.
Initially I handed the bucket full over to my little one, 2 ½ yrs, with me. Shrieks of laughter followed from the first look & joy handling them to positioning them in lines & sorting into colours. These make a satisfying sound all mixed together in a large bowl, they feel wonderful too.
We have used our bears in a variety of ways over the years, both inside & out, from informal exploratory, imaginative play, through to formal math sessions. Sometimes we used their bucket balance scales, which we recommend too. They have been put into random containers & little bags, giving capacity experience, hidden in sand with glitter & shaving foam; great to feel the sizes asked for & splashed in coloured water. They have been printed with, leading to matching the bear to the same colour & pattern sequencing. Sorted into colour, size & weight sets. They have helped with addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, memory games, estimating & find the bear. They have been used as ingredients in the play kitchen & in muddy witchy brews too, not one complained! Imagination & language flourished as wonderful stories were told through these bears, in their own right & with other toys. They proved useful with preposition understanding too, the bear is on, under etc.
These little bears have certainly played their part, adding to real life numeracy & literacy experiences. Also ours have proved over the years, enduring pretty intense play... to be indestructible! These are definitely keepers; hopefully grandchildren will create their own magic one day.
I bought seperate colour bowls to go with these bears to help with colour sorting and the colours match lovely.
Nice solid plastic that can withstand getting thrown about and dropped by my toddler. Very pleased. Theres 16 of each coloured bears. 3 different size bears. My little girl loves the *baby* bears.
I would recommend. They come in a little clear tub that seems fairly strong as a container to keep the bears in.
She was very pleased to have her own set and we have used them many times in simple addition sums as well as to show halving and doubling. You can also put them in size order (they come in three sizes) and colour so there is a little more to them than just counting.
My Reception age daughter was also very taken with them as she enjoys lining sorting (she has some ASD traits) and these enable her to group and sort and line up in a variety of ways. She has also used them to answer simple maths questions too.
I would recommend these to anyone who wants something to help with maths at home.
