I love this! Each “QT” bear comes with a mask and a matching mask for your child!


Pay attention to those ideas that come to you in the middle of the night!  Olivia Carlson from Connecticut did, and started this “QuaranTine Bear” project to help children cope with the coronavirus pandemic and bring them comfort.

According to WFSB 3, Olivia lost her father to pancreatic cancer about a year and a half ago.  Right before this happened, they made “Build-A-Bears” together.  She said that her dad’s is buried with him but she still has hers and it brings her a lot of comfort.

Each “QT” bear comes with a handwritten note that includes tips on staying healthy. As I type this, Olivia Carlson is selling these bears for $40 and you can find out how to order one here.

Congratulations to Olivia for putting this idea into action.  I’m sure that she’s bringing every child that now owns one joy!
