Jerry the Bear


SKU: 12060

Teddy bear comfort meets tech-world innovation. Built by Sproutel Toy Company, Jerry is a new-age teaching tool for children with Type 1 diabetes who simulates what it’s like to have the chronic illness. And he’s cute and cuddly

The story-driven Jerry, complete with 21 e-books include adventures with Jerry’s friends — glucose and insulin — encourages engagement between child and toy.Jerry comes with a free app, 21 interactive e-books, e-tools (pen/pump/glucometer), and 8 injection sites. These stories correlate to learning a new diabetes lesson and are “unlocked” when a child successfully completes a management task.  

Jerry is not only a teaching tool for the child with Type 1 but also for the entire family and even extended community. Through interaction with Jerry – using the app and virtual tools to check his blood sugar, make food selections, carb count and administer insulin – children learn how to take care of him and in the process themselves.
