The Bears of Blueberry Forest are Friendly, Fun-Loving Emotional Intelligence Experts that help Children to deal with their Emotions and Learn Social Skills
Teddy’s Inc. is a brand created purely to help children build their Emotional Intelligence (EQ), enhance their social skills and give them the tools to deal with mental and emotional health issues.
It all started with the idea to help children learn valuable social skills and defence mechanisms that will set them up for happiness and prosperity in later life. We wanted to give our children an opportunity to enjoy being young and to minimise the pressure and negative impact of starting school at such a young age.
But, as with any ambitious idea, there were a few stumbling blocks. What was the best way to teach children about these challenging concepts? We needed to do it in a way that young people would understand and connect with but avoid them feeling overwhelmed.
That’s why we invented the Bears of Blueberry Forest. These friendly and lovable Bears help children to identify and deal with their feelings whilst building their courage, emotional resilience and self-esteem. Children often confide in their soft toys and take comfort from their loyalty. They provide a medium through which parents and children can connect where everyone feels able to talk about their feelings without fear or embarrassment.
A Whole New World
The Bears started their life in a series of fun, captivating adventure stories for children aged 3-7. Parents, carers and teachers attend training and receive teaching packs every month that contain books, activities and lesson plans. There are 26 packs in total to cover the entire alphabet of feelings.
But the Bears don’t just exist in storybooks. They also have their own online world – or they will do...
While we’re planning to take the Bears on Tour and maybe even to your child’s classroom, our first priority is to give every child around the world access to important lessons and support from Teddy’s Inc. whenever they need or want it. That’s why we’re developing their colourful and captivating online platform – the Bears of Blueberry Forest Clubhouse.
Parents, teachers and children can log into the platform at school or at home to access books, games and activities. Teachers can project what is on the screen onto the classroom whiteboard so that children can spend time in Blueberry Forest with their classmates and everyone can learn the fundamental skills together. Children can also log into the clubhouse in their own time when they fancy listening to a story, reading a story or playing a game and spending some time with the bears in their world.
There will be new content every month and this subscription-based platform can be accessed anywhere at any time by anyone in the world.
The skills we teach are divided into four main categories to cover the entire spectrum of emotions. Drawing on our real-life experience, psychological expertise and expert insight, we – and the Bears – will help children face up to difficulties in four main areas:
Emotional Building Blocks
Courage, Self Esteem, Self Worth, Self-Value, Emotional Literacy
Communication, Listening, Empathy, How to, Actions
Fundamentals for Future Success
Self-Motivation, Goal Setting, Bully Prevention
Life Coping Skills to Deal With
Divorce, Abuse, Bullying, Death, Hurtful Memories
Where we're at
We’ve been working on Teddy’s Inc. for many years now. We’ve just started putting our name out there and have been thrilled to see a buzz around the brand on social media. We’re training parents, childcare workers, au pairs, teachers and therapists about the valuable work that Teddy’s Inc. does to help them pass on valuable lessons to children in their care. We’ve already implemented the idea in two schools in South Africa where it’s gone down a storm.
With your support, we can take it up a level and give Teddy’s Inc. the showcase that the brand needs – and deserves - to bring emotional intelligence skills to children worldwide. It’s all ready to go and your contribution will help bring our online platform to fruition, allowing children and parents to explore the Bears of Blueberry Forest World and cope better with the challenges that everyday life throws at them. You will be helping young people translate complex, alien emotions into something they can and will deal with.
We do hope you’ll join us. Thank you for reading.
Big bear hugs to you from the whole team at Teddy’s Inc.x
Meet the Bears
Before we go, we think it’s only polite to introduce you to the bears to give a little more insight into how it all works…
Each story and every character is focused on explicitly and implicitly creating a safe haven for children to share with them and an atmosphere where positive feelings and openness are prioritised above all else. We can’t wait to share the adventures with you.
A Note About Our Rewards
Although we advertise that our books and teachings are for children between the ages of 3 - 7, we have found that children up to the age of 10 love them and learn just as much from them as well
Our rewards make wonderful gifts and just in time for Christmas too!
Risks and challenges
This campaign's rewards are simple because they are 85% done. All the designs, the books, the kits, the posters, etc. simply need to be ordered in bulk and shipped out. What is not done is the online platform and that is what this campaign is all about, getting our online clubhouse funded and up and running. All due diligence has taken place and we have selected a very reputable and well established company to 'build' the platform for us.
The biggest challenge we have is spreading the word far and wide. We have big dreams with a big goal and to fulfil it we need lots of people to share, not only our goal, but our passion for creating a happier, emotionally healthier world for our children to live in.
With much love and big bear hugs
