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 aspect of the Berenstain Bears memorabilia market.  Beginning with the Bears Nature Walk Giant Floor Puzzle (Random House, 1975) to recent additions by New York Puzzle Company (12 puzzles, 2012-2014), 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?
