"Pin the Hat on the Polar Bear" Game
Great preschool game
I really like this game. The graphics are clear and bright. I was hesitant getting it after reading other reviews, but was glad when I received it. I had the impression the paper was a lot thinner than it is. It is about the thickness of heavyweight copy paper. I did laminate it as suggested only since I want it to last through repeated tape applications with my classes of preschool children. Young kids love this type of game!

I laminated it to make it easy to reuse. The kids loved it.

Laminated Works Great
I took the advice of another review and laminated this so it can be reused for future school events. Now I can also use a dry erase marker on it to write names. We break our holiday games into stations so there are about 4/5 kids in each station and rotate. So with 8 hats there are enough for one class!

Favorite game at kindergarten party
Pin the Hat on the Polar Bear was my son's favorite game at the school holiday party. I did glue the paper to cardboard at home because it is very thin paper. I think it would tear easily. We set it on a classroom easel which was a good height for the kids. You might want to find a different way to cover their eyes because the one that comes is easy to see through.

Will use as a Christmas activity for grandkids.

I bought this game when I bought the Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin game. Both are a good size, have colorful graphics and punch out pieces so that no cutting is required. I did have it laminated at the teacher store for under $1 so that it can be used yearly. My only complaint would be that there are only 9 hats. Because we are splitting our class of 20 into 2 groups I did photocopy the number 1 hat and made it into a 10. And you could do that to make any number of hats you want. Good purchase!

Fun Party Game
Purchased this for my child's winter themed party. It was a big hit! It only comes with 9 hats to pin on the polar bear, so if you have more children attending the party, as we did, just copy the hat with the number 1 on it then you can add number 10 and so on for all the other party goers. We had kids aged 4-10 at the party and all the children loved the game and that this was a polar bear! I thought the quality was great, though a bit expensive for a paper piece...but if the kids are happy, this Mom is happy!

Kids loved it
I asked the kids in my care where we should put this game. They suggested to put it on the fridge which turned out to be a perfect idea. I taped the bear to the fridge and put magnets on the backs of the hats. The kids had a blast.
