Bear — grief and loss


Bear is a special project created together with my best friend who deals with loss professionally and has dealt with personally. We realized, for young children, there is not a lot on the market right now to give them comfort when losing a loved one. We wanted to change this and so Bear was born.

Bear is a lovey, a cuddle blanket to be comforted by and feel safe with.

Bear will protect you with his strong claws and comfort you with his soft thick fur. 
Accompanied by an affirmation card to let go of the tension and tears, but keep the love in your heart. Loss can take many forms in a child's mind. Family members, pets and even things that are gone or broken can have an impact. However big or small, Bear is here to help you get through.

Read more about the affirmation cards here.
The cards are available in Dutch and English. Want a different card to go with your stuffie?
