I have seen both of those bows before.
They are relics but did their job back in the day.

Cool stuff as conversation pieces.

they would both make cool wall hangers..Id say preserve them, and get your daughter into a newer bow

whats she going to think of archery if she is shooting one day and that old bow breaks?

first I would have it gone over .I would like to make sure she is going to stick with it before I go drop more money on a new bow that wont get used .if she shows good intrest in it I have no problem getting her a new one its just like bying a new car when you drive it off the lot you know what happens .last nite she sat down and cleaned up the bear and said it was cool she wanted it .I just spent a alot of money bringing mine back up to date so when I pick mine up I will see what they say about this one .this is what I am doing to mine

You don't see many of those Bear models. Looks like a nice small grip. If she loses interest (which I doubt ) let me know if you going to let it go. Good luck with it and hopefully she'll grow right into it.

I'm not sure about the Ben Pearson but I think the Bear was called the "Flare".

I have an old Bear Hunter it is a good bow for as old as it is. But It will be too long of a draw length for your daughter. I started my daughter with a Diamond edge good bow as a starter bow and since they have replaced them with the razors edge you should be able to pic a diamond edge up for a good price.
