I think this series could have a big following because it reminds me of famous kid shows, like the Baby Einstein series. The storyline is simple to understand and the 2D animation is cute.

The story follows Becca and Zoe, two friends that help an elderly bear and three little bears find the sleepy fairies so the bears can hibernate easier. I like that the animated bears are different colors so we can easily tell them apart and that the story includes a rocket ship in space. I also like the story that the bears need fairy dust to sleep. The story line is most interesting when the bears are in space helping bears on Earth.

The point of view of the animation includes close-up shots as well as far away shots. It is neat seeing the rocket ship go out of frame in one of the scenes.

I like the pajamas on the little bears and the space gear (especially on the Robot Bear, voiced by Erica Opromollo) is cool. I like that one of the little bears has a yellow blanket with white stars. It is super cute. I like the scene of the elderly bear sitting in his chair with the little bears sitting on a green rug in front of him while there is a fire in the fireplace. It looks cozy to me. The music is upbeat and sets a fun tone to the film. It appears that possible relatives of the director, Mike Schleif make up the voice talent, since Madison Schleif and Julianna Schleif are listed in the credits. The little bears have cute little voices, so I like the voice talent. The animation is strong and simple, so it should translate to the big screen pretty well. The only thing I don't care for is how the bears walk as it is not very realistic. But, other than that, I'm a fan and recommend it for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals.

The message of the film is about helping others. My favorite character is the brown bear with the blanket (Lilli Mason) because she is so cute. I think her blanket won me over. I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 9. Reviewed by Cadence G., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
