"Squeeze their tummies! Watch their funny noses!"

Nosy Bears were produced by Playskool/Those Characters from Cleveland/Hasbro from 1987 to the early 1990's. They were plush teddies (plus a few bunnies) with plastic globes on their noses. When their bellies were squeezed various items in their noses would move about from the air pumped in. The smaller Shaker Nosy Bears and Nosy Bunnies had snowglobe type noses which were filled with a liquid. There were also a few accessories made to go along side the series.

They were sold in the US, UK and various parts of Europe, with slightly varying names:

  • US/UK - Nosy Bears
  • Canada - Popinours
  • France - Nosynours
