A ratchet screwdriver, it’s cast in the form of a stoic-looking male bear, who appears to be neither smiling nor frowning, choosing to wear a straight face while it looks out into the ether. That makes it cute without cranking up the adorableness to 11, making it a less-awkward addition to any handyman toolbox, compared to something that goes over the top in terms of winsome charm.
Made by Taiwan-based iThinking, Bear Papa stows away in the form of an upright bear figure that’s made up of three parts: the head (which serves as the screwdriver), the torso (which serves as a cover for the bits), and the lower body (which serves as storage for the bits). It measures 125 x 57 mm (l x diameter), with six included bits (two Phillips, two hex, and two slotted) and a size that looks like it will play nice with other standard-size bits in your toolbox. You use it much like any ratchet screwdriver (turning the handle, rotating the O-ring, and all that), except with the benefit of a semi-adorable bear supervising the whole job. It comes in four colors: brown, gray, red, and black.
