We have some very exciting news to share! Our dear Bear, beloved by children all over the world, has been invited to participate in a very special symphony orchestra led by some of the finest musicians in the land. The Canton Symphony Orchestra in Canton, Ohio, will be bringing Bear to life through music for young people at their annual SymphonyLand series, which runs January 11 through April 19.

This past weekend, Rosi and Brian Amador* of the Pan-Latin ensemble Sol y Canto stopped by our Concord Studio for a rare family concert. They delighted the audience with live readings of The Parrot Tico Tango and Lola’s Fandango, and performances of songs from their award-wining children’s CD, “El Doble de Amigos/Twice as Many Friends.” For those of you who weren’t able to be there, here is a video of the event taken by a budding young videographer.

We’ve recently had the extraordinary pleasure of working with two organizations that are all about helping kids have fun. Plain and simple. B. toys and Rabbit! Come again, you say? B. toys is a truly phenomenal toy brand created by Gisela Voss, a mom designer with the same focus on imagination, creativity, fun, and giving back to the community as our own mom co-founders, Nancy and Tessa. A few months back, Gisela and her merry team of toymakers introduced us to Rabbit!, the incredibly talented and full-of-life band, whose songs have appeared on SuperBowl commercials, on the Zappos Happiness Bus, and most recently, on the Crayola glow in the dark chalk commercials.
