cute stuffed bear

These days, it seems that all stuffed animals you see in the store are mass-produced, generic, scratchy, and worst of all, NOT cute.

The North American Bear Company was founded 30 years ago by Barbara Isenberg, who wanted find a high quality teddy bear with the charm of an antique toy and a contemporary sense of whimsy.

North American Bear Company My Own Bear NouNou is one of those toys–a whimsical design based on kids’ drawings made of soft velboa.  The young creator of the bear design, Emile, said of her bear: “NouNou is nice. She plays the accordion and an orange flute. She likes coloring and has a plastic giraffe that makes a sound and goes ‘pouet pouet’ when squeesed. She would like to play one day with real baby bears that may be in her stomach”.

A portion of proceeds is donated to Hugs Across America, an organization which provides teddy bears to children who are in traumatic situations such as fires, natural disasters, and hospitals.
