  About Us

 

On a ski trip in 2002, Jeff and Zach Golden decided there had to be a better way to keep your hands warm and still access your fingers to wipe your goggles, blow your nose, etc, without removing your gloves on the ski lift. After a year and a half of Research & Development, the father and son team partnered up with their resident "buddy" Mike Wolinsky, and came up with BearHands. Combining fun and functionality, BearHands are unique, super-warm, ThinsulateTM lined, paw-shaped mittens that allow you to access your bare hand through a secret Velcro flap.

Accompanying their mittens is the adorable "buddy" line of products developed by designer Julie Dennis, who serves as in-house designer and production co-coordinator. Buddy line items include scarves, hats, ponchos, baseball caps and sun hats. There are many colors and animals to choose from. Buddy accessories allow children to snuggle with their animal friends while leaving their hands free to play.

BearHands & Buddies products are everyday items that have been recreated in a unique way and appeal to people of all ages...simply put, BearHands & Buddies put the fun in FUNctionality and find smiles wherever they go!
