4 Simple Steps:

2: Choose Your Shipping: WEEKLY or SINGLE

WEEKLY: Your child gets a package a week, for four (4) consecutive weeks. Proven to be a grandparents' favorite!

SINGLE: Get all 4 packages in one shipment. Directions list the order for presenting and opening the packages. With this option the parent sets the pace of the adventure!   


3: Personalized to Surprise!

Enter your child's name at checkout. Each letter from your Touring Teddy will be personalized with the child's name. Your name is also mentioned in the introductory letter, so that the child knows who the gift is from.

Letters 'from' Teddy

Each of the four packages includes a personalized letter to your child 'from' Touring Teddy. These letters introduce your child to the country represented, and go on to describe teddy's exciting adventures as he tours and explores cities and landmarks within his country. 

The letters are illustrated with child-like drawings, seeming as if they were doodled by the young teddy bear. For the child that is not yet reading fluently, these colorful drawings help bring teddy's travels to life.  

Fact-Filled Photos

There are so many fun photos included - over 25 of them!  Nearly each has a description and/or a fun-fact or two.  Kids get a kick at seeing their very own Touring Teddy pictured in front of famous country landmarks,  enjoying delicious food, playing sports and more, all in his country. 

The photos tie in with Touring Teddy's journey, described in his letters. For the child (and grown-up) that enjoys a visual, these photos are a real treat and create a memorable reading experience.

The photo album in the introductory package has a language card on the back flap.  Kids are proud to learn to count the numbers in French or Italian, printed with English pronunciation, for ease of use. Basic phrases are also listed, along with words such as please, thank you, and teddy bear, of course!

Surprise Souvenirs

The novelty toy souvenirs are included to surprise and delight. Reference is made to them within teddy's letters, thereby adding to the memorable reading experience of this shared travel adventure.

Each souvenir is wrapped in a cloth gift bag with the following note: 'A Gift 4U. Please read my letter before opening!' ~ We can't promise every child will hold off, but we had to try ;)  

Exciting Extras

But that's not all...

A child-friendly recipe card is included with each Touring Teddy. These ethnic-inspired recipes are made mention of in teddy's letters. The recipe encourages family interaction; baking together builds memories, warms the heart - and the tummy. Yummy...Delizioso!

Two Touring Teddies Postcards are also included in the 4th package, encouraging children to keep the magic of mail alive. Plus a 'country activity sheet' offers yet an extra way to enjoy active learning fun!

Read what parents have to say :)

Kids love receiving personalized packages from Touring Teddy, and parents love the non-electronic educational touch...


"As a veteran teacher and a mom, I am always on the lookout for fun and educational products.  When I discovered Touring Teddies, I knew it would be a big hit at home and in the classroom. The weekly gift packages are beautiful and durable, providing hours of interactive imaginative play, an engaging storyline and interesting facts about the bears' home countries.  My daughters are in love, just as I am, with our new BFF's! (Best Furry Friends!)"

Allyson Israel, Teacher & Parent

"I just wanted to tell you how much my kids enjoyed all the things sent in the Touring Teddies packages. They were so excited and really looked forward to getting each letter... the little gifts that came along with it were adorable. They kids were especially happy to show off the picture album when we had a family from Italy eat by our house! I already passed on the word about Touring Teddies to my friends...!"
