Buddy
- A friend in need indeed
 
 
Welcome to the Buddy project, concerning a somewhat special teddy bear. All the Buddies are handcrafted and made from carefully selected materials. But what distinguishes Buddy from other teddy bears is his special ability to simply eat all your troubles away!
 

Creative direction, design and construction: Mette Beate
Photography: Lars Brandt Stisen
Project: Inspired by the German concept toy "Sorgenfresser"
 
You'll find the explanation to Buddies abilities in his heart, where he keeps two stones: One is made of mountain crystal which is said to enhance every other stones abilities. The other stone is a birthstone carefully selected for it's particularly beneficial properties to his owners zodiac sign.
The concept

1. Write your worries on a piece of paper and put it in Buddy's mouth (there is room for a whole lot of troubles)
2. Push the belly button while you -
3. wish for a solution (the more you put your mind into it, the better it will work)
4. At some point Buddy will have digested the problem and it will exit his system in the form of a fart. The note can now be removed. All Buddy needs in return for his hard work is your love!
