Thank you to Masha and the Bear for sponsoring this post.
I spend an embarrassing amount of time watching children’s TV shows.
With 6 kids, everyone has their own favorites and, after almost 14 years as a mom, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every episode of all of them so I like to change it up whenever I can.
Masha and the Bear is a charming little animated Russian show that features a curious little girl and her friend, the bear.
This 3D animated family show has more than 20 billion views overall* on YouTube worldwide, is seen in almost every country and has been translated into more than 25 different languages.
*Includes Masha and the Bear, Masha’s Tales and Masha’s Spooky Stories
My family first discovered it on Netflix when the spinoff project, Masha’s Tales, launched in February 2016. I was pulled in by adorable styling of the show but we kept watching it for the lovable characters.
This show is absolutely charming.
Masha is so curious and gets into crazy predicaments. The bear is so loving with her. After dealing with all the crazy things my kids have put me through over the years, I feel for the bear. Their interactions are so sweet and it is fun to watch each problem be solved and a lesson learned by the end of each episode.
I love it when I find a children’s television show that is has true character. It makes it so much more fun to watch as an adult and it is fun to expose my kids to animation from other countries.
If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the insanely popular YouTube video, A Recipe for Disaster. This video is one of the top 10 most viewed YouTube videos of all time and has recently gained more views that Adele’s “Hello”.
Check it out below. The video is adorable (and sadly, relatable to any parent)
Spinmaster has just released the first US toy line based on Masha and the Bear. To celebrate the launch, Masha and the Bear costumed characters can be found at a series of special holiday events at Toys “R Us stores around the country.
There will be fun photo opps and each event will feature fun giveaways of Masha and the Bear cards, pins, and masks, as well as toy raffles.

We got to check out a few of the new toys and they are adorable.
The little bear plush is super soft. I love how closely it resembles the animated version.
The Masha doll is a rag doll that is perfect as a little comfort item. My daughter couldn’t wait for us to pull her out of the package.
Masha is reversible. You can flip up her skirt to reveal another dress (and head) so it is like having two dolls in one.
It looks like a regular doll once you flip the dress over. I thought it was such a fun way to add in another play option.
My daughter cracks me up. She saw the doll and said, “Mommy, I have been waiting my whole life for a doll like this”.
She’s very dramatic.
The Masha and the Bear toy line will also include a Masha Snap n’ Fashion Doll that looks like so much fun. You can see it in action below:
