Bear On The Chair ®

My invention and patent:
I invented the product,

Bear On The Chair ®, at the age of 6. I also hold a design patent for my product. I thought it would be fun for kids to have a positive reinforcement teddy bear all year long. I was inspired by Elf on the Shelf and I thought, why not have something that helps kids behave good all year long, not just at Christmas time! 

Bear On The Chair ® is a year round behavior buddy for kids. It is a great behavior tool that parents and teachers can use with children 3 and up. It comes with a cute bear that wears a T-shirt with a velcro patch. There are two patches included. There is a happy face patch and a sad face patch. When kids are behaving well, doing great and working on their goals, manners, skills, etc the care giver, teacher, or parent will put on the happy face patch. If things get off track, the parent will switch the patch to the sad face patch. It gives kids an instant visual tool to let them think about what they are doing well or the things that needs improvement.

Bear On The Chair ® also teaches empathy by showing children how their actions are affecting others.  It’s also a great motivator for them to work hard to keep working towards their goals. 

Bear On The Chair also helps children with Autism. The velcro patches become the voice for children with autism that are nonverbal. They use the patches to express their emotions to the their care giver, when otherwise they would get upset and frustrated when unable to express their feelings. 

Bear On The Chair ® is sold on the website www.bearonthechair.com, Amazon, and in select Learning Express stores.
