Masha and the Bear



The Russian cartoon, Masha and the Bear, is tremendously popular here.  My granddaughter adores it, and has a Masha doll and the Bear. To quote Wikipedia:

"Masha is depicted as a precocious, happy, kind, and mischievous little girl, while the bear is a fatherly retired circus performer that tries to keep Masha out of trouble but often ends up the unintended victim of her mischief. There are a number of supporting characters in the series, including Masha's cousin, a penguin adopted by the Bear, a young panda cub who is the Bear's cousin, a tiger that worked with the bear in the circus, and a female bear that is the object of the bear's affections, along with a rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs, two wolves who live near the bear's house, and a pig, goat, and dog who live in Masha's front yard."

 Have a look at this cute video.

I've never heard of Masha and the Bear, but it looks like a wonderful program for the kiddos. I can see why your granddaughter likes it!
