Product overview

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt Wooden Character Set

This wooden character set is based on Helen Oxenbury’s artwork from We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. The figures provide a playful way for children to engage with the story and practise the language from the book, while exploring new versions of their own. These wooden figures are ideal for small world play activities. Why not recreate the different environments featured in the story – grassland, woodland, mud, water, and snow scenes.

Each set includes the following: Bear (150 x 150mm), man & baby (50 x 160mm), older girl (45 x 110mm), younger girl (45 x 92mm), boy (60 x 80mm), and Dog (75 x 42m).

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt Story Talk Cards

Picture books provide rich opportunities to explore language and extend vocabulary. These attractive packs include eight double-sided plastic story cards featuring the original illustrations from the book on one side and engaging language activities on the reverse. These ideas will build essential speech and language skills through discussion, and include ideas for story talk, retelling prompts, questions about the characters shown, and role play, amongst others.

Measuring 275 x 210mm and printed on durable plastic, these cards are ideal for introducing the story to a group and are tough enough for use throughout a learning environment, including outdoors. They are also fantastic as a sequencing resource, enabling discussion and engagement as the children decide on the correct retelling of the original story. With four fantastic picture book titles to choose from, these packs will stimulate discussion time and time again, boosting language skills and building confidence.


Practical Pre-School Awards Tester:
A great enhancement to a well-loved children’s book. The wooden characters are excellent quality and are well made, safe and durable. A very accurate representation of the illustrations and the children used the characters to act out the story. Great resource for building story language and taking on the roles of the characters at different points in the book.”

Sarah Vickery, Montgomery Primary School:
They were a good size to be handled by small hands and matched the size of the small world play set up in the builder’s tray. They stood out well and weren’t lost in the story props. They were beautifully produced and detailed, matching the illustrations in the book perfectly. The characters were in good poses to be imagined to be in motion on their bear hunt (dynamic)…they were fab for our animation as they balanced well and could be positioned easily.”
