Default Musical Bears (OT and not)

First the on-topic bit, which has very little to do with the header. I
just found a website about cycling board games. Wouldn't mind trying a
few of these:
URL:http://cyclingboardgames.tripod.com/cbgtext.htm


Now the off-topic bit. I discovered this site while I was trying (in
vain) to find the rules for a game that I've just bought in a charity
shop. Has anyone here played a game called Musical Bears? It has a
picnic table with 3 jellies that light up while the music plays. There
are 9 chairs, 4 cakes and 4 bears. I thought it looked ideal for my
3yo, and I thought I'd have no trouble finding the rules on www.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find anything about it at all.

Um Reifenbrite won the very prestigious Spiel de Jahres in the early 90s
and is still available, made by Jumbo (a Dutch firm), though "by
available" I mean in Continental Europe, primarily Germany. I picked up
a copy on eBay recently, but haven't played it yet. There are rules
translations available at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/442

'Fraid not. someone at rec.games.board /might/ know.

I'm wondering if it actually /is/ a game or just a toy?
Does it mention a manufacturer somewhere? If it's Hasbro there are a lot
of manuals he

found it while looking for instructions for our 'new'-from-ebay
Pokeball.

Thanks, unfortunately it's not Hasbro.

It's definitely a game. It was made by J.W.Spear & Son (the box shows a
copyright notice of 1994). I haven't been able to find a Spear's
website. I've found loads of Scrabble sites, but none of them links to
a Spear's site. I also found that Spear's is a subsidiary of Mattel,
but I could find nothing useful on the Mattel site.

Perhaps I'll try rec.games.board, as Pete suggested (I'll follow it for
a bit first, I don't believe in posting without being familiar with the
ng). It looks friendly.
