    Polar Bear

    His right front leg will not light up. This is not fun.

    It's all fun and games until someone ends up in a cone.

    Is there an in-line fuse that might be dead? Check to see if all the wires are intact. Could there be a cut or damaged wire or could a wire have pulled out of one of the light sockets?

    I don't think it's a fuse. It's a weird set up, the string is split between the left and right side. The left side lights up, the right does not. I'm trying to avoid pulling and checking each bulb.....

    How old is the Bear? Is the string the kind where one bulb goes and the rest go dark? Are the bulbs the kind with a plastic base with a small wire in a groove on each side of the base that is then inserted into the socket? those are sometimes crooked or not pushed in completely.

    (just because I'm an electrician doesn't mean I know chit about holiday lights)

    I just had a friend deal with that last weekend (deer not bear) If you have to pull the string of lights to check them JUST REPLACE THEM!. (check before installing)
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    He's fixed!! I decided I had to look at each bulb, and found one hiding that was broken. Totaly crushed. Pulled it out with some pliers, popped in a new bulb -- and he lights up all over. yay me.

    Why do you hate tripod bears?
    Cats just don't feel safe on a moving bicycle, no matter how much duct tape you use.

    Yup, I've geeked out and started a blog: www.adventuresinprocreating.blogspot.com

    Did you ever stop to consider that maybe the bear liked having one unlit leg? Like maybe with the other lit-up polar bears having an unlit leg is like having a really cool tattoo or piercing. Or wearing a hijab?

    Why did you like violating the religious rights of lit-up polar bear ornaments???

    My reindeers antlers...

    I have a female and male reindeer in our front yard. The antlers of the male will not light up...?
    There are no broken/crushed bulbs......I wonder if " he" is making a statement.

    I had considered making him a suit of armor, like the Armored Bears in The Golden Compass.....
