Character Bear is a teddy bear that instills Character!  Soft, un-stuffed teddy bear is brought to life when children stuff six colorful pillow-like pieces into the bear.  Each piece represents a character trait (respect, courage, love and caring etc.).  While children read a guide with the parents, they learn about the character traits and what it means to be "full of character".  Bonus - Princess Story Fairy Tale that brings the bear to life in a book. 
Great gift for children ages 3-7.  Great party gift!  A special teddy bear that will soon be their favorite.


It's what's inside that matters the most.   Click under pictures to see the full Character Guide Book.
