Teddy Bear Stories: a one-of-a-kind collection of teddies based on and inspired by kids' drawings (an ongoing project).
Teddies are a classic childhood toy. We had them in all shapes, colors, and sizes given to us and our children by friends and family. Our children had many but there was a particular one with a label that said "oso" as they were growing to be bilingual. Reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is also one of our favorite memories with our children. After moving a few times, whatever is left of our teddies might still be in storage, but we certainly remember them fondly. By gathering teddy bear stories and drawings, we've set to create a very unique collection of memories.
BB Bear (building blocks bear) is a different kind of teddy. While working in our studio, we saw among our collections (old toys, bits and pieces, haberdashery, etc.) some old building blocks and parts of teddy bears in the works. BB Bear is all about the possibilities: you can build a tall teddy, a sitting teddy, standing teddy, caterpillar teddy, totem teddy, sleeping teddy, etc. There's no one way to be but many.
