Hi, my name is Lauren and I was inspired to create Higgy Bears so that every child can have a friend to help them through their scoliosis journey. As a young girl with scoliosis, I didn't know anyone else "like me" and felt incredibly alone as a result. It wasn't until my adult years that I met someone else with the same condition. I immediately felt a sense of relief knowing that I wasn't alone anymore.
It is was from this perspective that Higgy Bears was born. Higgy Bear hopes to make your child's scoliosis journey a bit easier, whether sitting on a shelf, cuddling up at bedtime, or providing companionship during his or her visits with healthcare providers. In addition to helping kids feel less isolated when they are undergoing treatment, Higgy Bear and his friends may aid you in ensuring compliance with your doctor's daily orders for brace wear.
We offer mini scoliosis braces for stuffed animals and 18" dolls. Choose from our standard Rigo and Boston Style Braces, or have a custom brace made just for you! We know that all braces are unique, so we welcome and encourage custom orders! Send us an email with pictures of your brace to firstname.lastname@example.org to start your custom order.
Had surgery? Higgy Bear has, too! We even have a line of Casted Higgy Bears for the little ones. No matter what your treatment, we will make scoliosis "bear-able" for you!
