North American Bear Company....

I have a fabulous company to tell you about today....North American Bear Co.  Have you heard about them before? Don't be fooled by the name...this is not a company who makes only bears.  Although they do manufacture absolutely adorable teddy bears they also make a wide range of dolls, dress-up items and other playthings.  I am drooling over about 50 things right now!  Before I get into the items I was lucky enough to be able to share with my kiddos here is a little bit about the company...

Nearly 30 years ago, North American Bear Company began as a creative business enterprise of a new mother, Barbara Isenberg, starting a family in New York City in the mid-1970’s. Her desire to find a teddy bear with the nostalgic charm of an antique toy and a contemporary sense of whimsy for her own small son prompted the start of a toy company creating unique, high quality plush bears that would appeal to both children and adults alike.

You all know how I love a Mom and/or Dad company so I was already taken by their start before I got my hands on some of their products.   When their products arrived was when I became 100% smitten with the company!

North American Bear sent me three of their wonderful products and I am happy to be able to give the you scoop on each one...

The Secret Pocket Cape


Satin cape with velcro closure, 4 inside pockets for favorite trinkets (not included), and clear vinyl shield back pocket to display cape insignia or child's own artwork (3 cape inserts included). Fits most children 3+.

This cape is a huge favorite with me.  It is not your average super hero cape...not one bit!  Those secret pockets really set it apart.  Those little pockets allow your super hero, magician, fairy (etc..etc...) to really expand upon their play by offering fun little hidey holes for all their necessities.   I also love the back pocket where your child can make their cape their own and can change it as quickly as their imaginations take them.  This cape was such a hit with me that when I had my first assignment for a local magazine I chose to write about this (read more here)


Little Princess Angel



Lovably sweet in soft velboa with embroidered facial features, ribbon accent and attached tricot wings. Soft doll is a keepsake first friend for baby.

Baby R is WILD about her Little Princess Angel (we have the brunette but you can also get her in tan or blonde).  This little doll is so incredibly, velvety soft...just dreamy.  Baby R loves to snuggle up with her and carry her around lovingly.   This would make an excellent new baby gift!

 Big Mouth Dinosaur

Innovative design in soft velboa with stomach full of removable prehistoric surprises (caveman, club, dinosaur egg, palm tree) that pull out thru the mouth. Irresistible boy appeal!

This is such a creative toy!  All children love stuffed animals but this stuffed dinosaur is much more than a friend for cuddling.  Because he is packed with all kinds of "goodies" he is the perfect travel companion.   This guy is great for imaginative play and my guys love to snuggle with him as well as make him rule their very own pre-historic worlds!  Big Mouth Dinosaur is made of that same velvety soft material of Baby R's Little Princess Angel and can be MACHINE WASHED (yippeee!!).  This one is a great birthday gift for all the little boys on your list.

I loved each of the three products I tested out from North American Bear Company.  The quality was amazing, the designs incredibly creative and the fun factor was off the charts.  They have been officially added to my list of favorites.  I am already making a list for Easter goodies for the kiddos (check out the Topsy Turvy Dolls...love them!).


I am so excited to tell you that North American Bear Co is giving one lucky RBM reader ALL OF THE ITEMS I RECEIVED!  You will win the Secret Pocket Cape, Big Mouth Dinosaur and Little Princess Angel...a $95 value!  Thank you to North American Bear for their amazing products and for allowing me to share them with you all!   Here is how to enter...
