I got this from my granddad. I have always supported adoption and I have always told people that there are so many kids who need to be adopted. My best friend Shaylyn was adopted and you can't find a nicer girl anywhere.

A Keepsake Bear
Our "newly adopted" children recieved the bear for a "keepsake" from their Case Worker. When we see the bear it will remind us of this wonderful day.

Every kid needs a bear like this.
Our 5 month old grandson loves his bear so much. He talks to it. He needs another one so he is not without it when it needs to be washed.

Family Bear
So happy you have brought back the Being Family Bears. I have been trying to order them for months, and I am so thrilled they are back in stock. I have many families I know that do foster care and then adopt. This adorable little bear is a sweet way of welcoming the child into their forever family.

What a wonderful way to be encouraged to donate to a good cause and receive a cuddly bear. Really, just do it!

Best Baby Bear
My mother-in-law bought this for my son when he was about 5mo old. He has slept with it daily for the last few months but he sucks on it's nose. Needless to say it smells pretty bad. I needed a back up for when this bear is in the wash or when it finally gives out, so I just ordered five more. It's great for a 1st time bear, small hands to hold onto, and to cuddle with.

These bears are so cute! I saw Bubba Watson's ad for them and since I support him and his cause for adopting I knew I had to get a few bears to donate to kids who need a cuddly friend. Thanks Bubba and Jockey for such a cool idea for helping others.

Barbara J on May 8, 2018
I was adopted almost 63 years ago by a wonderful couple who could not have children. I'm forever grateful for the love and kindness given me by my adoptive parents and strongly encourage those considering child adoption to move forward. There are too many children in need of loving families.
Catherine A N on May 7, 2018
I will be giving this to my husband for Father's Day, we want to support families and my husband is a bubba fan!

We are an adoptive family and I really appreciate all the efforts Jockey makes to assist families like ours. I always put a stuffed animal into a baby gift and now, I will be giving a Jockey Being Family Bear in baby gifts, giving my support to adoptive families through Jockey.

My neice Ginger has 2 precious kids. She is dating a guy who has 3 precious kids. When I saw that it was National Adoption Month I thought it was a way I could give to ALL kids by buying/donating a bear to their 5 little children.
Thank you Jockey for do this,

(after seeing how cute the little bears are I had buy myself 2)

Where did the bears get their name?
Barbara T on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question, Barbara!

The brown bear is named Sam after our 19th-century founder, the Rev. Samuel T. Cooper.

The sand-colored bear is named Donna after Donna Wolf Steigerwaldt, our previous CEO and the mother of our current CEO, Debra Steigerwaldt Waller, founder of Jockey Being Family.

Thanks for your support of Jockey Being Family.

What age is bear labeled as appropriate for?
A shopper on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is probably a question better answered by Jockey since I don't have the bear to refer to. I do know I bought one for one of my grandchildren who was adopted around the time he turned one year old and he loved/loves it. It's well made, adorable, very soft and cuddly. I also donate every time I purchase from Jockey. I'm sure I read the tags but that was over a year ago, so if you want manufacturers recommendation , i recommend calling Jockey, I can only recommend the love and cuddles...highly.
