Meet Jerry the Bear
A comforting companion for children with type 1 diabetes
Jerry makes learning fun!
Kids take care of Jerry by feeding him a healthy diet and keeping his blood sugar level in a good range by counting carbs and matching insulin doses.
When Jerry’s blood sugar level goes high or low, Jerry speaks his symptoms, encouraging kids to recognize how they feel!

Hear from our families!
Diabetes management takes a village. Use Jerry to help explain treatments to aunts, uncles, grandparents, classmates, friends, and even teachers!
Jerry helps children gain hands-on skills to help them move toward mastering how to count carbs, monitor their blood sugar levels, and dose insulin.
With Jerry’s simulated diabetes, kids aren’t alone. Caring for others can be therapeutic, so help your child take care of Jerry and feel empowered!
“This is one of the most heart-warming, 'doing well by doing good' products I've ever encountered. “
“This product's innovative use of play to tackle complex children's health issues is on track to change the medical industry as we know it.”
“Jerry the Bear is so darn cool. It’s such a great learning tool! Caylin loves that she has a stuffed animal with diabetes, too! It’s just such a super cool bear and I’m so grateful to have it in our home.”
“Using “scare tactics” to motivate a child to learn about diabetes and how to take care of themselves just doesn’t make sense–for children or adults! And that’s where “Jerry the Bear” comes in.”
