Hungry as a Bear, part of HABA's "My Very First Games" series, allows youngsters to play with their food — their fake food, mind you, with six cardboard dishes being available (blueberries, carrots, etc.) and two copies of each dish. The rulebook includes three games:
- Little Bear Is Very Hungry: a co-operative game in which players roll the die, then try to feed the stand-up bear by placing a dish on the spoon and pushing it through the bear's mouth.
- Little Bear Is Starving: a memory game in which players try to match the food dishes on offer.
- What Is My F-F-Favorite Dish?: a guessing game in which one player secretly chooses a dish as her favorite and the others take turns asking questions and trying to guess the dish.
