Markoosie bears aren't only "broad in the beam"; they are frequently broad in the tummy, arms and legs!

The soft and well rounded Teddy Bear is one of the most popular versions of our childhood bear friends.  Winnie the Pooh, Rupert the Bear and the Bernstein Bears are all lovable and potentially cuddly.

No one wants to imagine being mauled by a charging polar or grizzly bear.

We are deeply attached to our "tubby" bears.

Maybe this fellow is having one last dance as he prepares to hibernate for the winter.

Markoosie is a dedicated and talented craftsman.  His Dancing bears are not only spectacularly handsome, they awaken our imaginations.
