Ohana Bears by Bo Bergemann® are unique original colorful characters straight out of Bo Bergemann’s imagination. It all began with our hero Ohana Bear from a story Bo wrote in 2016 while going through some huge life changes. The Ohana Bears emerged as his followers eager to join him in his mission to prove to the world it is more blessed to give than to receive. Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family and Bears exist all over the world until recently . . . except in Hawaii. Bears are, or were at some point in time, actually found literally almost everywhere else in the world except Hawaii. Just like so many people who live elsewhere but have hearts that will always belong, at least in part, to Hawaii. Teddy Bears are a universal symbol of comfort and connection. Ohana means family in Hawaiian and so much more! It is a word for a unique concept that embodies loving connection between people whether or not they are blood related. Ohana Bears are an imaginative colorful personification of connection with both Hawaii and Family. Learn more at OhanaBears.com.

Ohana Bear is our hero who embodies Bo’s vision which is as unique and beautiful as Hawaii itself. Ohana Bear’s origin story is a mini modern fairytale or coming of age story which many of us can relate to. He is part teddy bear, part pineapple and part rainbow and his story begins with him having no idea who he is as he begins life in Hawaii then begin’s life’s adventures in NorCal. He doesn’t stay put for long, but everywhere he goes he grows and as he does so, he becomes the best version of himself who he goes on to inspire us all.
