On a ski trip in 2002, Father and Son, Jeff and Zach Golden, figured there had to be a better way to keep hands warm while accessing their fingers to wipe goggles, blow nose, etc, without removing their gloves on the ski lift. Over a year later, they teamed up with their resident ‘buddy’ Mike Wolinsky, andÂ BearHands were born. Combining fun and functionality,Â BearHandsÂ are unique, super-warm, ThinsulateTMÂ lined, paw-shaped mittens that allow you to access your bare hand through a secret Velcro flap. Fully enclosed paw-shaped mittens for infants and toddlers were a natural addition to the range. Accompanying the mittens is the adorable ‘buddy’ line of products developed by in-house designer and production co-ordinator, Julie Dennis.Â Buddy items include scarves, hats, ponchos, baseball caps and sun hats. There are many colors and animals to choose from.Â BuddyÂ accessories let children snuggle with their animal friends while leaving their hands free to play. BearHands & BuddiesÂ products are everyday items that have been recreated in a unique way and appeal to people of all ages … simply put,Â BearHands & BuddiesÂ put the fun inÂ FUNctionality and bring smiles wherever they go!
