Quick little project completed today. I found an old magazine with the acrobatic Bear in it so I decided to have a go at making one. I had something similar when I was a young lad. Pretty simple to operate, gently squeeze together the bottom sticks which make the bear flip over, squeeze again and he flips back. The grandchildren should have fun with it.
Sorry about the picture orientation, not sure why my iPad turned them this was?

Outstanding. Those are really fun to play with and you made the bear very recognizable.
Good deal.
