by:  Rev. James GW Fisher
Evaluation Report Summary (ERS) Date:  02/18/2007

Innovation is a vital factor in developing new ideas that have impact and value. This is a common point we are all familiar with. At Toy Fair 2003, Holy Bears™ was the paradigm of innovative ideas with their Holy Bears stuffed dolls. At Toy Fair 2004, Holy Bears was back again with yet another monumental new product design, Holy Bears, The Animated Series. Now wait a minute...Holy Bears, the Christian icon of teddy bears debuting an animated series? That's the reaction of many, yet it's an established fact. After all, in the toy industry, innovation and evolution to go with the times is essential and Holy Bears has done it! The Toy Man Online: Product Guide 2004 is a sister company / publication to Positive Image News, the publication which gave Holy Bears the Editor's Choice Award last year for "Best of Show".

About Holy Bears - The Animated Series: "It's Great To Be Alive"

The first story relates the origin of the HolyBears®. Sophie O' Malley's two favorite teddy bears, Sheldon® and Grace™, were washed ashore and left behind on a remote island after a shipwreck. God saw how the bears strengthened Sophie's faith in Jesus during this terrible ordeal, so He gave the bears the gift of life and a special mission. With the help of a reclusive scientist, Faraday Farnsworth, Sheldon® and Grace™ soon discover the nature of this mission - to show other children all over the world how to use their faith in Jesus to handle the problems they encounter growing up. And they just might find Sophie along the way. The series is also supplemented by a children’s hardcover book, and a line of plush toys and other branded products featuring the main bear characters, Sheldon® and Grace™, and Sophie O’Malley, the little girl to whom the bears belong.
