The BIRTH of the WEB SITE
In 2001, I become godmather.....
In the paths of a toys store where I was looking for a present for my godchild, I discovered DOUDOU. At once, I fell in love with him but I did not dare to listen to the child who was slumbering inside me. Same evening, taking my courage in two hands, I spoke about it to Jean-Christophe and admitted that I would like a DOUDOU because I didn't have one when I was young !
The next day, we left looking for him and since this day, he did not leave us any more. In every hike, trail round, he was with us. His expressions being too funny, we began to take pictures and to stage him.
It is then that we discovered the "Amelie Poulain" film (By Jean-Pierre Jeunet – a french director) and fabulous story of this travelling dwarf. We thus had the idea to use DOUDOU in a educational way :
Make discover the world to the children through a teddy bear.
As we came back from a trek in the Libyan desert and as we return beautiful pictures, in 2005, we decided to make a web site to tell his adventures. We already had a site to share our passion for travelling ( Mektoub), why do not extend this initiative for children...
Jean-Christophe’s mom, Nicole, primary school teacher of nursery school in Corsica began to use DOUDOU’s adventures to make the children dream but especially help the shiest to speak. DOUDOU became very fast a companion and the children do not grow tired of seeing again a passage of the DOUDOU’s adventures before their nap.
Then, Nicole spoke about him to the other primary school teachers (Gum and Scrawls) and to the moms who wondered which was this DOUDOU about spoke so much their children. Word of mouth worked and today you are reading the DOUDOU’s adventures and we thank you for it.
Thanks to you, to your reactions, your encouragement, we discovered that we were not the only ones to keep child's soul.....
