Development Pitch

The one constant everyone looks for and needs is friendship. That love that thrives in each of us to become someone’s love, someone's parent and someone's friend. We see this all unfold in this sweet and adventurous tale. Children will love the kindness and acceptance of how these characters treat each other all while being 100% engaged by their brilliant colours and their silly and spontaneous ways while helping a friend. To see these traits come to life on a screen, in a video game, app or even a plush toy, would be a blessing and an honour. With permission given for sequels, I could see children enjoying Beany Bear sharing positive influence on how to be kind all while going on different adventures, making new friends and staying safe.
