Current Obsession: Alphabear

Is anyone else obsessed with Alphabear? If you know me, you know how much I hate games. But I’ve been hooked on Alphabear for the last few weeks. It’s a word puzzle game where you build cute bears into bigger cute bears!

I mean, just look at my all-consuming Zombie Bear!! Isn’t it ridiculous?

And your bears also say cute/weird/silly things to you.

If you understand the #Alphabearlife, check out Kukubee’s Etsy shop where she has some adorable Alphabear pouches. I bought two for myself!

Full disclosure: I am not affiliated with Spry Fox in any way. I am just genuinely excited by cute things that take over my life!
