Are you familiar with the hit Netflix show Masha and The Bear? There have been more than 20 million overall views of Masha and the Bear. One episode, Recipe for Disaster, is even among the top 10 most-viewed YouTube videos of all time and has recently gained more views than Adele’s “Hello”! Riley loves this show – she has seen many of the episodes multiple times. Masha and the Bear was introduced in Russia in 2009 and follows the adventures of Masha, a smart, kind and mischevious little girl and her friend, the Bear (a retired circus artist) and other forest dwellers.

Masha and The Bear is now launching it’s very own toy line in the United States, from Spin Master. Your kids can play with the characters from the show in their home! Riley has loved playing with her toys while watching Masha and The Bear. It’s so fun watching her do so.
