A "Busy Bear" deck of >HIDDEN IMAGE playing cards from playing card artist, Peter Wood. This deck takes Teddy Bear decks to a whole new "hidden image" level with each "Busy Bear" being shown in various types of work uniforms and work settings. A fun deck for teddy bear fans and card collectors alike. This cool deck of playing cards features teddy bears in fun "career" positions or occupations like a UBS Bear (parcel delivery driver), firefighter, truck driver, farmer, housewife, dentist, zoo keeper, doctor, forest ranger, librarian, construction worker and so much more.
The basic scoop is when you look at each card face and find the hidden suits or pips (clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts). The deck plays like a normal deck of cards, but we have hidden the images on the card faces to add a new dimension. For example, if you look at the 6 of hearts you will find 6 hearts actually hidden on that particular image! Grab the 3 of clubs and you will find 3 clubs hidden in the image. The hidden images add a nice twist to any deck of cards.
ABOUT THIS TYPE OF ART:
This type of art isn't really new as it has been around since the late 1800s. We just love this type of art so much that we continue to create more decks with it. In the "old days" this type of art was called "semi-transformational" but we call it "hidden images". "Semi-transformation" just means that the suit signs or "pips" are hidden in the picture...which is exactly what these decks do. They are 'transformed' in a subtle and fun way just like they did in the late 1800s.
Are you good enough to find all of the hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades?

Playing Card Features
In the US the standard names for the size of decks would be "Bridge" or "Poker". Both of these decks can be used for most card games. The only real difference would be that the "Bridge" size decks are 1/4" narrower than "Poker". Otherwise they can be used for pretty much anything. Please read the description of this item for more information.
- Poker Size (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
This has to do with the actual size of a deck of cards, not really whether or not tradional games can be played with it or not. While here in the US we call most decks either "Poker" or "Bridge" size, most of the rest of the world would call them either "Wide" or "Narrow", respectivily.
Many times the "narrow" decks were intended for ladies or children because it was easier for them to handle. While the "narrow" are considered the standards size in most of the world, here in the US the "wide" are considered the standard size.
Please check actual description of the product to see if normal card games can be played with this particular product.
- Wide Format (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
What size of print (a.k.a. index) is printed on the playing cards. This is the actual numbers and pips (hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades). While most folks are used to the "normal", some like their numbers to be a little larger. Please remember that the normal and jumbo size print will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
We will do our best to sort through them and let you know our thoughts or what the manufacturer considers them.
In regards to the "Medium Sized Print". This is something that is unique to Newt's as we try to create decks of cards that have just a little bit larger print, but not to large to be annoying to those who do not like the jumbo print or index.
As always, be sure to check out the actual description of this item to get a clearer descritpion. Should you have any questions please give us a call.
