Berenstain Bears Jigsaw Puzzles

Berenstain Bears Get Fit (Random House, 1988)
Berenstain Bears Get Fit (Random House, 1988)

Jigsaw puzzles have been an important and long-running component in the Berenstain Bears memorabilia market.  Beginning with a series of puzzles produced by Random House and Milton Bradley in n1975 – to recent additions by New York Puzzle Company (14 puzzles, 2012-2016) – the evolution of the Berenstain Bears book series has been documented through generations of puzzles both large and small.  Random House produced at least 11 puzzles in the 1970s and 1980s, and Golden published 12 puzzles of their own during the 1980s and 1990s.  Whether completing a 6-piece Fisher-Price wood frame tray puzzle or the two charming Valentine’s Day Greeting Card Puzzles (Cleo/Gibson, 1990), the Berenstain Bears are always smiling back at you when your task is complete!

Below is my collection of Berenstain Bears puzzles – am I missing any?

  1. Awesome resource and collection! I just found a bb giant floor puzzle , the nature walk one. Before I let my kids play with it, does it have any value???

  2. I just recently purchased a Berenstain Bears puzzle & I don’t believe I saw it on the wonderful list that you provided. It’s a 1984 Connor Peek-A-Puzzle “Goodies from the Farm” 8510-2. It will be listed on eBay if you would Iike a pic. 🙂

    1. That’s crazy, though I always suspected there were more. I cannot find it on eBay. I look forward to your reply or email me: musicmanbrad (at) yahoo (DOT) com
