Baby's Got Gear: Hooligan Bear Review & Giveaway

About the company: Hooligan Bear is a collection of children's books based on Hooligan the bear and his nephew Little Louie.  The 3 book series was written by Hollywood producer Ian Toynton.  In the books, the two little bears live on a shelf in a factory and go on different adventures in each of the books.  There are themes in each book around friendship, love, sharing, togetherness, and caring and are for the age range 1-7 years old.  

Ever since Baby Skibbles was born, I have been building up her library collection.  I try to read to her often and I'm always looking for cute stories and this series from Hooligan Bear is absolutely amazing. She currently likes to eat books so we don't let her have them alone, but while she is playing, we read her stories, and I'm just beyond happy that I was given a chance to learn about these books.

There are three books in the series:  Home, New Friends, and A Special Day.  Home is about the adventures Hooligan and Little Louie must take when they go back to the factory and see it has been closed down.  New Friends is about Hooligan and Little Louie making a new friend and creating adventures after a box falls off a passing truck.  A Special Day is about Hooligan throwing a special surprise when he realizes Little Louie has never had a birthday.  Each book is adventurous and teaches children about so many themes.  They are enjoyable for me to read to her as well. I definitely think this is a series that should be on every little one's bookshelf!

What I love even more is that each week via Twitter, you can follow the Hooligan bears along on their weekly adventure and then at the end of the week the journey is collected together and found on Storify. She's too little for this right now, but I think this is a brilliant idea.  So many times kids have something that is their favorite thing, so to be able to follow along is genius.

CONNECT: Make sure you are following on Facebook and following all three Twitter links to share in the weekly adventures! @hooliganbears @hbhooliganbear @hblittlelouie
