Frequently asked Questions

What age group can enjoy BEAR products?

Our BEAR snacks and cereal can be enjoyed by cubs from 12 months+. We recommend that all children are supervised by a grown up when consuming any food or drink.

How can I find out about allergies?

Our Yoyos, Paws & Claws are 100% pure fruit & veg with absolutely no added nonsense. Our products therefore contain no nuts, dairy, soya, wheat, egg or legumes whatsoever. They’re also packed in a packing house where there is no cross-contamination with nuts, dairy, soya, wheat, egg or legumes.

Our crunchy Alphabites cereal contains just barley, oats, corn, rice, wheat & coconut blossom nectar. There are no nuts, soya, dairy or legumes within the recipe however they may contain traces of milk and soy due to other products made in the same facility. They’re packed in a packing house where there is no cross-contamination with nuts, egg or legumes.

What is coconut blossom nectar?

It took BEAR years to find the perfect recipe for Alphabites because we were determined to avoid using refined sugar and some of the other nasties commonly found in Kids' cereal. Our belief is that food needs to taste good AND provide goodness at the same time. That’s why we picked coconut blossom nectar- because it contains more than twice the calcium found in milk and more than twice the potassium found in bananas. It is also unrefined and literally collected raw in pots from a tree twice a day by our small team of farmers. Most importantly our coconut blossom nectar has low GI of 35 which is about the same as a carrot.

What is ‘leafy green veg’ extract?

Our leafy greens come from veg like spinach, kale and chards. These are primarily used for colour so feature only in small quantities.

Do BEAR products contain any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)?

Our ingredients are really simple, exactly what you see printed on our packaging is what's inside (it's not our style to hide anything, or be sneaky). We set up BEAR to make simpler, tastier foods from grrreat ingredients and with no added nonsense, so you can be rest assured that there are absolutely no GMOs in any BEAR products.

What are the current BEAR card collections?

For 2018, you can join Captain BEAR and his 4 amazing astronauts on BEAR’s Grrreat Space Race! BEAR has challenged Snowball, Hubble Trouble, Max Speed and Pink Phantom, to a race around the Solar System! There are 50 Space Race cards to collect in total and 10 limited edition cards will be launched into BEAR Yoyo packs in September. There is 1 card in each BEAR Yoyos packet.

You can also find BEAR’s Outdoor Alphabet cards in boxes of BEAR Paws. There are 3 cards in each box and 26 in total to collect.

I am looking for a specific BEAR card, is there any other way to get my paws on cards?

Our current card collections will continue until the end of the year, so there is still time if you’re trying to complete your set!

If you’re looking for a card from a current or previous collection, a grrrown up can check our Facebook page where many fans and collectors often swap cards. You can find the link to Facebook in the ‘Talk to BEAR’ section of our website.

You can also email us at - the only cards we have at The Big Cave are those left over from our own BEAR Yoyos, Alphabites & Paws munching so we may not have what you’re looking for. That said, we’re more than happy to have a forage in case we can help.

What is the current BEAR reward and how can I get my paws on one?

BEAR’s reward for 2018 is a Solar System poster, complete with some out of this world space stickers!

To receive your poster and stickers, please send 10 bearcodes from the back of single BEAR Yoyos packets, along with a note including your name and return cave address to: BEAR’s Cave, Outer Space, Po Box 73589, London, SE1P 5FP.

For more information please see:

How long does it take to receive my reward?

Our busy postbears are beavering away to send out Space Race posters as quickly as their little paws will allow! They usually manage to deliver Space Race posters within 3 weeks of receiving ‘bearcodes’, so paws crossed it will arrive to your cave shortly.

If you’ve been waiting longer than 3 weeks to receive your Space Race poster, please give us a growl to so we can chase those pesky post bears for you.

I have a question, comment, praise or complaint to make about a product, how do I get in touch?

Please give us a growl to and one of our cubs will get back to you ASAP. For others ways to talk to BEAR, click here.
