Each teddy bear comes with a personalized hang tag which includes information about that person's life and achievements. Each hang tag also contains a fun "Did You Know" trivia question with addition information about the person.

Kids and adults love these soft, colorful, and cuddly teddy bears. They play with them, hold them, and learn with them. They're fun for the whole family.

Schools and parents love these teddy bears. They are lovable friends as well as great educational tools. Toddlers begin to learn historical names. Early elementary school-aged children recognize key events associated with each person. Older children learn in depth details about each person and the times in which they lived.

These bears also give children real life heroes to look up to. All of these people had their ups and downs in life, and in the end they accomplished their goals. In today's society, this may be the most important part of the IMA Hero™ Collection.

Happy Learning!
