Why Teddy bears or other stuffed animals are so popular not only among children but also adults?
Everybody needs some softness, even more when the life is challenging. When the stuffed animal is offered to a Newborn, it is the perfect transitional object, associated with the tender feelings of mother-love. It provides comfort when baby feels lonely or scared. It becomes the companion to cuddle but also to talk to and communicate emotions. It helps to manage the pain and clear it.
This teddy can become a lifetime friends, occupy a special place in bigger children or even grown-up and still bring some confidence in the toughest moments. It’s sometimes so nice to get a cuddle with our childhood soft toys.
Teddies are popular gifts for important milestones, such as graduations, engagements, birthdays, valentine’s day… as they are a great way of saying “I love you.”
I have met a very cute Teddy in Paris and I wanted to tell you his very interesting story… He is called “L’Ours Kiwi” which means Kiwi the Bear.
Carole her creator was inspired by her first stuffed bear called Kiwi because of the oval shape of his head, so similar to the kiwifruit. She has never grown out of it and has reinvented her cuddly, retro classic and very flexible little bear.

Carole created a very poetic story to explain the origin of Kiwi the bear. On a planet very far from Earth, there was a gardener called Mr Carambole dressed with a large straw hat, a coral overalls. He was watering a Bubble Tree where you could find the Kiwi bear and also his cuddly friends : Tamarin the Zebra, Pepino the lamb, Cloud the sheep…. And one day, they will come out of their bubbles to live fantastic new adventures with a friendly child.
Kiwi the Bear can be adopted on Tendre Deal Boutique and would fit perfectly on or under your Christmas Tree.
