He’s cute, cuddly and extra cheeky…it’s Mr Bear!
Children will love acting out their favourite adventures from the Green Bean Collection with their very own Mr Bear Soft Toy:
Our brand is centred around a range of books and toys that is designed to promote a love of the outdoors, kick-start reading skills, and create precious moments between parents and children. The range is produced using people and planet-friendly methods, in a way that contributes to local, independent businesses.
Anita Frost is the author of the Green Bean Collection and is the founder of Green Bean Studios which is home to the books and toys featured within the collection, which won the 2020 UK Enterprise Award for Best Children’s Toys and Books retailer.
We have had the privilege of receiving many glowing reviews from parents. For example,
“My 2 little girls love Green Bean! They love the Green Bean Bedtime book! You can never have too many books!”
Going forward, our goal is to diversify in the area of media and animation, to reach wider audiences. Long term, our goal is to become a brand that will be loved for generations to come.
Storytelling forms a crucial part in developing children's overall personality. Children all over the world love listening to stories. They want to know more about their favourite characters from Green Bean & Friends™ and often try to emulate them.
Here at the Green Bean Studios®, we honour the fact that children need space to read, and through the Green Bean Collection® we have created characters that encourage and celebrate learning. Our teaching goes beyond learning about numbers and colours - we seek to build the confidence and self-worth of young children and demonstrate the importance of friendship. The individuality of each character lends itself to lessons about the uniqueness of each child and how we are all special as we are. Green Bean, Mr Bear and new friend, Beckett the Bee, partake in fun adventures that take children on a magical journey.
