Hello everyone! My name is Jare. I grew up in a family of ten brothers and sisters. I was the youngest child. Being the youngest child and growing up in a big family, I knew early on sharing my toys and everything else with my siblings was not always the easiest task! My siblings and I only have a one year age gap. We would always fight over toys, food and even clothes! It was the silliest things.
Being in a big family, it created an environment where I love being with family. I think that is the things that money cannot buy. I would not trade it for anything else in the world. That is also the reason why I went into a profession where I can make people, especially kids happy. Kids love toys! I found my true calling and became a professional stuff animal creator. I was fortunate enough to have found a job a “Make a Bear Factory.” I am one of their designer and consultants of creating new ideas of stuff animals to promote in our stores. I always analyze local trends all around the world by visiting nearby towns or going online such as facebook and instagram to find inspirations.
Also coming from a big family, I am a very lucky uncle of 15 nephews and nieces who also love toys! (*Gasp, big surprise).They give me constant inspirations every day! My specialty is making personalized stuff rabbit animals because one of my nieces loves rabbits! I even pitched a stuff rabbit animal line to “Build a Bear Factory.” You should be able to find this in your local stores soon when the Easter holidays rolls around!
