This is a 1st Christmas toy for my daughter and niece. Santa made two of them this year! My wife introduced me to the bear because she used to play with one at her aunts house when she was a kid. After she did some web research, she was able to find a free pattern and directions to create one! The bears are made out of some 3/4 red oak, finished with some stain (can’t remember the color) and a couple coats of spray on poly. I used some nylon rope, found the wood beads at my local craft store, and spray painted them red. This was a very easy project for the scroll saw, but I think they will prove to be at least a few minutes of entertainment when the kids get older!

Thanks for looking and sorry the photos are little grainy but I had to lower the resolution in order to get them posted. If you want better photos I can email them. Just ask!

Nicely built, the simple toys are sometimes the best ones.
