WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF TOMAS AND TEDDY
Home of Mother Nature, Healing, and Wild Teddy Bears.
We are two good friends trying to make a difference in the world by helping children balance their busy digital lives with nature, healing and some of their closest allies — the Wild Teddy Bears — the true ancestors of our domesticated teddies, and perhaps the rarest, wisest, and funniest creatures still roaming the face of the Earth.
LIVING WITH TEDDY
My childhood friend Teddy and I have been working really hard on simply what’s needed — delivering Mother Nature’s message to all of the children out there, who could use her guidance, love, and energy. And today, we're very excited to announce that thanks to your support, our Kickstarter campaign fund our first children's book, titled 'MISSING,' has been a tremendous success.

For the past three years, we've been raising awareness about the current mental health crisis affecting kids everywhere. We've introduced the first readers to the whimsical world of Mother Nature, healing, and mindfulness, and provided their parents with step-by-step instructions on how to become the healers in their family. And today, we're ready to take our mission to the next level by sharing our book with as many families in need — FOR FREE — starting with our home base, New York City.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tomas Kohoutek is an award-winning creative director, communication guru, and a teddyologist, who’s for many years served some of the world’s hottest idea factories. But deep in his heart, Tomas is just a storytelling dad, healer, and peacemaker who finds inspiration close to home and enjoys bringing children, grownups, and nature closer together in a fun and creative way — through the Art of Quiet and Mindful Living, an essential survival skill he picked up as a child from his friends, wild teddy bears.
My Search for the Best Childhood Advisors and Counselors
While there are plenty of brilliant teachers and gurus out there helping grownups with some of their physical and mental challenges, I could not find many mentors that our kids could learn from or follow on their own terms. And because, as a child, I had to face many difficult situations, I decided to do something about it. For the sake of our future generations, I traveled the world in search of my best childhood counselors and advisors — wild teddy bears — who had disappeared from my life without notice. One day, instead of shedding more tears, I started writing stories about all the amazing adventures we’ve been through — not just to have the world help me find them but also to help children everywhere find themselves through the magical power of their own teddies, stuffies, and plushies.
'Missing — A Magical Tale of Wild Teddy Bears' was written and illustrated in close collaboration with my family, wild teddy bear experts, and Mother Nature — the ultimate mentor and healer everyone should be learning about, because she can give us all a powerful foundation, tools, and skills we need, not just to survive in this modern world, but to thrive in it.
Awaken the Healer Within.
As parents, guardians, doctors, teachers, and counselors, we all are, without a doubt, our children’s most needed, most trusted, and most influential advisors. Therefore, if we fail to connect with our children and help them communicate, share their struggles, and most importantly heal, in any way we can, then someone or something else will surely fill the void. Are you ready to awaken the healer within and help your children start a healthy family conversation about their problems, worries, and fears? Then join us on the journey of a lifetime — journey full of nature, healing, and mindfulness — some of the most important ingredients missing from our lives today.
