Celiac Traveling Bear

Recommended Posts

I found this and thought I would share. I thought it was a great idea and even though it is based in NY, the bears travel all over the country. Just thought it might be something fun for the children (and the kids at heart) on here to look into...

That is so neat. How exciting that would be for a child - to feel connections with other Celiac children. Hope you do this and can then report on it.

We did this in Dec - my daughter loved it! The bear went everywhere with us for 3 days. He even did yoga with her and came with us to one of the GFRAP restaurants! After we sent the bear back I went to build-a-bear to buy the same one that visited her because she was so sad to see him go and wanted to keep him with her. It was a great experience and gave us the opportunity to educate the kids in her class (1st grade), as well as her teachers. I highly recommend it.
