Los Kaos have combined natural history and over a decade of experience in interactive performance to bring you Bjorn the Bear, a fully animated pod-puppet. He has blinking eyes, a sniffing nose, an opening mouth and live sounds, all of which make this life-size bear a magical and unforgettable indoor show.

Bjorn comes with his own inflatable iceberg environment and his helpful herder Ursula, who comes dressed in a sumptuous Inuit-style costume, and encourages audience interaction as well as talking about polar bears and their habits and habitat.

Spectators are encouraged to not just watch, but to stroke and pat him. Amazingly life-like, playful and interactive, Bjorn continues to amaze and astound audiences wherever he goes.

Please note

Bjorn Bear will be on a sabbatical for most of 2020 and will not be touring from 01 January-30 September 2020 (unless it is a 5 day consecutive booking)

They will begin taking bookings from 01 October 2020 for the winter season.  Fool’s Paradise will hold a waiting list. Please email us for further information.

‘I must thank Los Kaos and their magnificent Polar Bear…I must say without a shadow of doubt, this is the best costume I have ever seen. The structure, its noises, down to the detail of its fur, was absolutely amazing. There were gasps of amazement from the audience at every show and comments from adults and children alike, “is it a real bear?!”’

Bjorn seems to be becoming our Christmas Market mascot! He was a big draw again and apparently much talked about on social media in advance.  Lovely people as well – very easy to work with
