This summary discusses how bilingual toys are being used to help children integrate socially and culturally into Canadian society. A teddy bear was designed by COSTI Immigrant Services, a settlement agency in Toronto, which speaks 64 phrases in Arabic and English. This is very useful for the children to learn English, while also educating them about Canada through phrases like “I love hockey!”, because hockey is an important aspect of Canadian culture. While the bears are expensive to produce, donations cover the cost of production, and the bears are created locally.
