Bear Fan Club was founded in 1991 by Toni Lagunoff when she gathered
seven of her friends to share how teddy bears comfort and help people
smile during trying times.
Mountain Bear Fan Club distributes over 10,000 stuffed animals annually. The
recipients of our “gifting” include hospitals, social service agencies,
sheriff and fire departments, the CHP and local service clubs, all who
help deliver the animals to those in need of a hug.
