Bear's Animals (UK cards)

Bear Cards AppThe Yoyo Bear Animal cards first appeared in the UK in mid-November 2020, although the official launch was in mid-December. The cards are in Portrait format, with the numbers marked on the front. They have yet to appear in the USA.

The set consists of 69 cards.

We are now in May 2021, and finally some new cards have started to appear, but no shinies as yet. For the first time, Bear has produced an "App" which enables collectors to keep track of which cards they have.

About 5 months into collecting these cards, we can make the following observations:

1. Around 80% of the cards in the early packs were in the range 1-16.

2. By March, the cards 17-24, and 37 to 42 were appearing in greater numbers.

3. The remainder of the cards have started appearing in the new style Go-Ape packs which hit the shops in late April. In addition there are 9 bonus cards, which are all types of tree dwellers, split into subsets of three.

4. With regard to shiny cards, the appearance of the remaining numbers seems to rule out the shinies being in the original 1-60. There are non-shiny bonus cards which are numbered 1-9. Will shinies perhaps be in another set of bonus cards, or will there be none this year? Time will tell.

The image below shows most of the first six cards. All of pages have now been populated to some extent, but are still not complete. Hovering the mouse over the numbers below (or tapping numbers if on a tablet or phone) will display the remaining pages.

1-6 7-12 13-18 19-24 25-30 31-36 37-42 43-48 49-54 55-60 b1-6 b7-9
