I just stumbled upon a website I’d like to share with you. One of the original founders of the Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Company has launched a new line of dolls created and based on bible characters. Their mission of faith statement is to Teach children the Bible one character at a time. They offer dolls that speak and stories of the Bible written so a child can understand which can be downloaded for free. Suggested reading and speaking character dolls help parents interact with their children to study the bible together.
You can check out the website of this company One2Believe for more information.
It sounds like a wonderful way to bring the Bible to life and share the experience with our children and grandchildren.
