Is Your Children's Story Finished And Available For Sale?Yes. Our book is completed and available for pre-sale via KICKSTARTER > Kickstarter is a world-class crowdfunding platform that can help us bring our project to life. How does Kickstarter work? If we reach our goal, and raise $5,000 (or more), we'll use the proceeds from the campaign to simply fund the production of the books. But this project will only be funded if it reaches its goal, which means, if we don't hit our funding goal, all the pledges will be canceled and the money will be returned to the backers. Free Preview Would you like to preview our book? You can download the first three chapters of our children's story HERE > We'll keep you updated on the progress as we complete each production step.

Are Teddy Bears Valid Healers?Absolutely, as you already know, healing comes in many shapes and sizes — and teddy bears, or any other stuffed animals are definitely part of the healing universe. They are much more than just soft, cuddly toys or great gifts, but rather our first friends, mentors, and guardians, who, much like real animals, can help us cope with this new world, or our troubles, through their unconditional love, kindness, and healing. But that’s not all. For the lucky few, who deserve it, or who need extra help, stuffies can even come alive. This miracle happened to me, perhaps because, as a child, I went through a lot of difficult situations. If you want to learn how you can bring your own stuffies to life, then check out the last chapter of our book — dedicated just to you, grownups — where we’ll be sharing step-by-step instructions for how YOU can bring your children's furry friends to life and become the healer in your family.
Can You Tell Me More About Yourself?My name is Tomas Kohoutek, and I’m a Creative Director, children’s book author, and a storytelling dad, who enjoys bringing children, grownups, and nature closer together in fun and creative ways. I'm a father to my daughter Hana, and the founder of Daddy and Teddy, a friendly and safe community full of teddy bears, plushies, stuffies, and designed to help kids everywhere become stronger, healthier and kinder human beings. My childhood friend Teddy and I are trying to make a difference in this world by bringing children, grownups, and nature closer together. We love exercising, healing, working on cool projects, and learning from everything around us — especially from Mother Nature. I was born in Czechia (former Czech Republic) — in a wonderful city called Hradec Kralove. When my family moved to countryside, I met my friend Teddy. He is the one who introduced me to Mother Nature, helped me heal, and who showed me that I was born with many wonderful gifts, such as my sense of creativity, which is something that gave me a new perspective on life that opened doors to a new, secret and magical world full of unlimited possibilities, healing, and epic journeys around the world. Are you curious how Missing begins? Then make sure to download the first three chapters of the book. You’ll be able to get familiar with my writing and illustration style and find out how Teddy and I actually met.
