Dandy Bears is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.


Here's a 3 x 3 grid of some very dapper teddy bears indeed.

It look like they're arranged in a kind of pattern.

Which bear fits into the empty square: A, B, C, or D?

Why are they all so fancily dressed? There must be a reason for it.

A teddy-bear dinner party, perhaps?

The bears are wearing hats, glasses and ribbons.

There must be some kind of pattern based on these flashy accessories.

Here's a little tip: you can ignore the diagonal.

Pay close attention to the hats.

If you look along the top row, you'll see the bears are wearing a beret, a bowler, and a top hat in order from left to right. If you look down the first column, they're wearing a beret, top hat and bowler.

None of the bears are wearing the same kind of hat. The bears' ribbons and glasses follow the same pattern.



Too bad.

It doesn't seem like they follow any kind of pattern, does it? No, there must be some method to the madness here.


Beary good!

The answer is teddy bear D.

Those crafty dandies have arranged themselves that no two bears in the same row or column are wearing the same hat, glasses, or ribbon.
