General Info

First sketched and then bought to life in 2019 the Mood Bears have been on a journey of growth and development and have already been able to support thousands of children and adults across the globe. Mood Bears are not just a cuddly toy, they have been specifically designed to support mental health and wellbeing, and allow children, and adults, to express themselves when words fail them. They are not just a fun way to support children and adults as they negotiate all manner of emotions and feelings but they have also become a tool that can be used to teach and educate children, and adults, about emotions, feelings, and moods. Not everyone has the learning or language abilities to express themselves vocally, but by using the bears with their recognisable colours and symbols we allow communication to continue.

 

Mood Bears can be used to support young children who can not yet talk but can associate colours and symbols with their mood. The bears can be used to support people of all ages with learning disabilities, if their language skills are not developed or if they struggle to communicate with others the bears can bridge that gap. Groups or individuals who do not speak the same language can also use the bears to allow them to communicate with each other, the colours and symbols used on the bears are widely recognised and have been chosen specifically for the emotions and moods that they represent, meaning that they can surpass the language barrier.
