Who Started Bilby and Bear?
I’d love to introduce myself! G’day I’m Rachel: founder of Bilby and Bear. I work from my home office in the beautiful foothills of the Canadian Rockies, designing and developing products that make life easier for busy families.
Before I became a mom, I was an elementary school teacher for over 10 years. I’m also a yoga teacher and a certified mindfulness teacher who specializes in teaching mindfulness to youth. I have a passion for improving peoples’ lives and family is the most important thing to me!
As a mom of two, I’m all too familiar with the craziness of family life. My first-born (my son, Lawson) was such a fussy eater – mealtime madness was a common occurrence in our house. I tried everything to get him to eat, including working with a Pediatric Feeding Therapist, which is how I learned that bringing fun and positivity to the dinner table gets kids interested in their food.
This experience inspired me to create the first Bilby and Bear product: the football-themed Game Day Dinner Plate and Spinner Board Game. We’re a sports-loving family so it’s no surprise our first product was sports related!
But where did the brand name come from? Once again, it was family that inspired me! I’m originally from Australia and my husband is Canadian. My daughter, Cadence, has a stuffed toy bilby (an endangered Australian animal); Lawson has a stuffed toy black bear. I put the two together and came up with a brand name that not only represents two cherished toys but also the two countries that make up our family unit.
Fast-forward to now, and I’m committed to helping solve the everyday challenges of parenthood through unique, fun and high-quality products sourced from reputable, 3rd-party certified, manufacturers.
Where Are You Based?
We are based in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just outside Calgary in Alberta, Canada. We are a small business with a BIG vision.
