Frequently Asked Questions
What Comes With My Binka Bear?
Included in your purchase is the plush character Binka, a Prep Guide to getting you started on the process of weaning your child off of the pacifier, and the magical story, "Binka Bear and the Magic of Willowspring", which will help lead your child through the journey of how Binka Bear gets his magic through your child sharing his or her beloved pacifiers.
What Age Should I Introduce Binka Bear?
Binka Bear can be used as soon as you feel your child should begin weaning off of the pacifier. While every child is different, there should be a level of understanding for the process to make the bear and accompanying story as effective as possible.
That being said, pediatric dentists recommend limiting the pacifier by age 2 and eliminating it completely by age 4 to avoid future dental issues.
Do We Need to Read the Included Book First?
It is highly recommended to read (and enjoy) the book first since it provides the foundation and explanation for why giving up the pacifiers will help Binka Bear to get his magic.

Binka Bear is similar to other stuffed animals in that it is completely machine- washable and dryer friendly on gentle settings.
