Yako is a bear that helps 6-9 year olds communicate any thoughts or worries to their parents in a fun, non-digital cuddly way.

Like most days Anna had an idea. Matthew thought it was a great idea. A bear that you talk to without any modern technology with the main aim of helping kids understand their emotions.

So Anna borrowed her mums sewing kit and made the first prototype.

Anna Carpen & Matthew have made a bear.

He is here to help kids communicate better with their parents (and vice versa)

His name is Yako

(pronounced YAY'KO)
