Where’s BaBear?

“Ba” means “Boo” in Japanese and “BaBear” is the name given to our daughter Diva’s little panda, which she received as a gift from a nice lady at the Novotel Hotel near Auckland Airport. We stayed there on the way to and from Australia on our recent trip to Adelaide.

Diva was given a choice of several soft toys and she chose BaBear.

Of all her toys; including Murphy, Cow, Tigger, Gooby, Twitty, HeffaLump, Roo, Wog and Thing, BaBear is by far and away her most favorite.



















We have invented a game called “Where’s BaBear” in which we hide BaBear around the house and Diva looks for him and eventually finds him. She’s very good at this game and we have not yet managed to hide him successfully…she’s found him every time.



This was a difficult one…BaBear was hidden here by our friend Luke…but Diva found him in half an hour.

When she finds BaBear, she points and says “Ba.” We congratulate her for being so clever and then help her to retrieve him. She always grabs him and looks at him as if to say, “What on Earth were you doing in there you naughty BaBear!”

    • Thanks Rossy, Diva is excellent at this game and we’re running out of hiding places…Diva actually started hiding BaBear for us and she’d pretty creative with BaBear hiding places…as you’ll see in the next post coming soon to a computer near you!
