Hector is the perfect companion. He was born on the Faubourg-Saint- Denis street in Paris. He had to learn to take care of himself from an early age, because his mother left one day never to return.
Hector, also known as Totor by his friends, is very kind and very a affectionate. He always tries to show off and moans a lot. He is talkative, likes to debate, and to tell funny stories. He enjoys whistling and speaks only in Parisian slang. He smokes twigs without ever coughing.
He always protects his friends from the grown-ups who bother them. One day, while he was fighting with a bully to defend his friend, he lost an ear. His friends all joined together to buy him a new one. That’s why he has a glow-in-the-dark ear.
ADADA‘s teddy bears are somewhat peculiar characters: they each have a story that makes them terribly endearing! Teddy bears have a familiar attitude with facial expressions wich makes them conforting caracters for all children.
They are companions of adventure that they will never want to part with.
The teddy bears’ design is simple, minimalist yet complex. In fact, both the story and the expression should be perceptible within its form. It’s for this reason, that the designer only uses one material, one which is always soft, that feels good, and makes the child desire to touch it. In order to translate its almost human-like expressions and attitudes, which will create a bond with the child, the teddy is made with more than 25 parts sewn together. Furthermore, there is the embroidery of the faces and paws. Their dimensions are precise and meticulously positioned to create the sought-after expressions. And because they are hand-made, each teddy is unique.
Véronique Lacaze is an interior designer and when she designs her teddies, it is within the constraint that they can be integrated in an aesthetic and lively way into both the child’s universe as well as those of the adult.
