2016 Limited Edition Collectible Flash Starlight Bear

There’s a reason why kids hold onto so many teddy bears, they bring immense comfort and joy; not to mention endless time caring for them, talking to them – they are apart of the family. Teddy bears make kids feel love, give warmth, and provide friendship.

Starlight Canada teams up with Toys “R” US each year to release a limited edition collectible bear. Each annual collectible bear is inspired by a child who is living with a serious illness. Let me introduce you to ‘Flash’, the 2016 Starlight Bear.

2016 Limited Edition Collectible Flash Starlight Bear

Flash is the 8th Limited Edition Collectible Starlight Bear and is inspired by Noah, a young boy who was diagnosed with Pompe disease in 2011, at just 2 years old. Pompe disease is a rare genetic disease that affects muscle growth, yet in Noah’s case, it also means an enlarged heart.

Noah’s inspired bear name Flash features bright pops of orange, Noah’s favourite colour.There’s a stitched heart into the bottom of Flash’s foot, and “Starlight 2016” stitched into his other. Flash also has a rainbow tie to reflect Noah’s happy disposition, despite the many challenges of having a serious illness.

Kids know {but adults need reminders} that not all teddy bears are created equal. This is most certainly the case with Flash. Beyond his super soft fur and cuddly size, I can’t help but to look at Flash and think of Noah and how how I love that Starlight Canada and Toys “R” Us are providing these annual bears since 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Flash will be donated to Starlight so they can continue to help brighten lives of seriously ill kids, like Noah, through in and out-of-hospital programs.
