Pros: Bear keeps my son's attention
Cons: Bear gets on my nerves after of hours of watching
my son is 21 months old. i started watching bear in the big blue house when my son was 9 months old. my son is totally infatuated with bear. one of the shows is "potty time with Bear ". my son is now potty training himself because he saw that show. we have it on tape and he wants to watch it over and over. i never realized how much influence bear had on him until this.
my son can't even talk yet so when he wants to watch bear in the big blue house he walks up to me sniffing. he has the bear coloring books, clothes, stuffed animals, and audio cassettes. he gets so excited about bear. every time he sits down to watch the bear show he's very quiet and sits very still, staring at the television until the show is over.
i think bear is a very good role model for all young children.
