Not really a toy, but a favorite book from my youth.

Toy #7 -Berenstain Bear books

Why chosen: I read a lot of these books in my early childhood days, it had to have been early elementary school. There was always a great lesson to learn while reading this series and sometimes you could even watch a cartoon series based on the books. I don't know why I was drawn to these or liked them so much, but I do remember them being my favorite books to read when I first started reading.

Worst thing to happen to this toy: I kept the books in good shape, I don't think that anything bad ever happened to them.

Where are they now?: Darn good question. Knowing my mom, I'm sure she saved them because she knew I liked them so much. There is a shelf of children's books on the bookshelf at their house, but I guess I could add this to my list of "toy's I'm blogging about to search for next time I go home" list.

If I could play with them today, would I?: Sure, I might one or two for old times sake. Seriously, they couldn't take more than 2-3 minutes each to read, could they?

Relevant in today's times?: According to Wikipedia, there was an updated series made in 2003, so I'd say it's still somewhat relevant on certain PBS stations in syndication. If they started making books like the ones listed below, I'd have to buy them just to say that I owned them.


  1. hahaha, disturbing alternate books at the bottom!

  2. Wow. Just wow. Definite throw back! Loved these books (top 2), and was always creepily fascinated with them because they were still drawn with claws...eww. Can't say I've heard about the updated versions, but yeah....a mess.
