Did you see that one episode where Mother Bear makes a cloth Little Bear? I did that for DS and he carries that thing around with him everywhere. He had no interest in stuffed animals before but he LOVES his Little Bear. I just made it out of felt, totally easy.
We love the show, we don't have TV but we have some DVD's and about half the kids' shows are Little Bear episodes. (The other half are bootleg cartoons like David the Gnome, Fairy Tales, and Little Bits.) I love how the Bears celebrate the Wheel of the Year; we're a Pagan family and it's great to see them honoring the same holidays, but without a religious overtone so it's accessible to all. The only other show I saw like that was... gosh that was years ago on cable, it was a show about a Big Penguin and a Little Penguin or something like that, they celebrated the winter solstice, but that's about all I remember about that.
