‘We’re going on a bear hunt, we’re going to catch a big one — what a beautiful day, we’re not scared’ In NZ we, like many of you, are in lock down but we are allowed to go out for walks so long as we keep to our physical distancing. To help entertain the children people have been encouraged to put teddys in their windows for children to ‘spot’ while on their walks. This is our front door.

Jill, I have a few doggie "mates" along the way when I go out walking. Sadly though, two have passed away in the last 12 months, "Patch", and "Jesse". Jesse was trained as a Hospital Dog, specifically to greet the sick and infirmed in hospital. Joe took him there once a fortnight, and he cheered-up so many folk, and was loved by many children. Now, I don't even see Joe anymore, as he has no reason to walk every morning. ♥♥♥

Only three, not lots yet then, Axel sounds like he is quite a friend of yours Nev :-)

Jill, I kept my eyes peeled this morning, and in house windows I found three bears and an Axel. In one house three streets away an Indian couple who I occasionally say Hello to had two huge bears in their front window. And on the main road near the shopping centre there is a row of villas, with one of them having a huge bear in their front window.
Axel is Steve's dog, a miniature Bulldog pug, their house is about fifteen homes down in our street. Axel waits for me to walk past every morning and I wave to him in the window - if I don't he barks once to let me know and remind me. He's a great little dog, and I often play with him if Steve is there and lets him out. ♥♥♥

You are right Suzy, seems the horse gets even more smiles.

JillianB

Dobra it is a fun idea. Anything that makes us smile is a great idea as we all journey through this pandemic. Thanks for your note and I’m sending germ free hugs to you.

An absolutely wonderful gesture to give the children a bit of something to entertain themselves--and it's all about the community joining in.
The rocking horse must attract some attention as well as your cute bears. :)

Jill, your bear action touched me. It is very good that people can still close together. In our country, all people sew protective face masks. We must wear them now and cannot be bought. :-)

Jacquie, I do like this "young Nev" business - at 71 years of age that makes me feel like I'm a whole 68 again! :-)))
On my 60-80minute walk each morning I basically cover the whole neighbourhood, both sides of the street.
Marge had two small bears which our two grandsons are not really interested in - it's all cars, cars, cars at the moment, especially the red ones which go the fastest (?). And I had two Koalas, Barry and Nellie which are a good size for a windowsill.

Jacquie, I did notice a young couple (in their 20s) getting excited when they spotted them. Nev is a good sport. There is something about teddy bears (and koalas) Thanks & hugs

JillianB

Oh Nev - good for you! That’s great. I will be interested to see if young Nev spots any others. Thanks for the chuckle.

Congrats on joining the Bear Hunt, Jill. I see more adults than children out hunting but glad to see young Nev has joined in with such enthusiasm (4 bears!). Interesting that so many of us seem to hang on to our teddy bears, even to the extent of replacing them when they wander off with new owners...TFS, Jacquie

Jill, neither Marge nor I have heard of this. But we've just put four bears in our front windows just in case. We've not seen little children walking around our block but who knows - they may be there. The only "little kid" who walks our neighbourhood every morning is Nev, so he'll count the bears tomorrow. :-))) ♥♥♥

Voronica :-D

Jillian, that sounds like a good idea, soon. Hugs* Voronica~

JillianB

Good on you Val, I’m glad you have done that too. Hugs

JillianB

Indeed Lunie, just shows we still have far too much stuff lol

valt46

Jill that children seem to be enjoying the bear hunt we have 3 in one of our windows Hugs

Dilubreuer

Good you got several of them...compliance became so easy. Thanks Jill.

JillianB

Janet it is a good idea, and on the occasions when I have witnessed the children’s reactions out the windows it really is fun. Hugs and thanks

JillianB

Voronica we have down sized our toy cupboard considerably, a lot of it by grandchildren becoming attached to something and wanting to take it home, ok by me :-) Maybe we could see some of yours?

JillianB

Hi Ed, lol sure thing but I don’t think they will answer me back. Yes some of the simpler things of life are regaining importance. Thanks for your note.

jan42ful

What a great idea Jill and I love your two bears. A fun idea for children to bear spot!
Hugs my friend. ♥

vfdl47

Jillian, I think they inspire positive thoughts and joy, they're worth playing with! I have a small collection of them, I've shared part of the collection with my nieces to prevent becoming a hoarder of them! LOL . . . . . Hugs* Voronica~

bowlakeboy

Small things mean a great deal these days. Say hello to your teddys for me, please, Jillian. Ed

JillianB

Marina it is and fun for us when you see them notice the bears and we able to wave to each other. Not quite as cute as Paddington but do the trick. Thank you.

MarinaNephele

This is a great idea for the children. I like your Mr and Mrs Paddinton bears couple!

JillianB

That would be fun to see it. Jaklien You should be in bed then my dear :-))

Jaklien

I put a bear in front of my window since last week, the kids are happy about it.
I'll take a picture of it tomorrow, it's to dark right now ( 10:53 pm).

JillianB

That’s so cool to hear Voronica, I knew it was in Australia and here. It helps me keep me entertained as well, since this photo was taken I have also had them sitting on a horse, doing handstands etc. been a lot of years since I played with teddys lol.

vfdl47

Jillian, I guess the bear hunt is world wide, I have a couple in my front window and so does my neighbor, she told me about it last week. Anything to help keep each other sane. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy today . . . .Hugs* Voronica~
