About HiggyBears

Sales 3,756
On Etsy since 2014

Welcome to Higgy Bears!

Higgy Bears are special stuffed animals with mini scoliosis braces. Each brace is lovingly crafted by one scoliosis patient for another in Michigan. Easily shop by pattern, and then choose a brace style and your choice of Higgy Animal. Braces for American Girl Dolls are available, too! Every brace even comes with a mini scoliosis X-ray of the animal or doll's back. Surgery Higgy Animals and Casted Higgy Animals are also available!

A portion of all proceeds are donated to the Higgy Bears Foundation, a nonprofit division of Higgy Bears that is working to get Higgy Bears to Children's Hospitals across the country. Visit higgybears.com/donate to learn more! (Copy and paste link.)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Happy Shopping!

    Thank you for visiting Higgy Bears. I have had scoliosis since I was a young girl, and never knew anyone else like me. I created Higgy Bears so every scoliosis patient would have a friend just like them to help them through their scoliosis journey.

Thanks for stopping by! I've set the site up so that you shop by pattern. First, find your child's brace pattern, and from there you select the brace style and the animal you would like your brace on. Within the listing, you can also select that you would like a doll brace.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out anytime!
